Adaptive Identity Governance

man in front of computer

Dynamic businesses and real-time risks need adaptive identity governance

Identity Governance is often implemented as a reaction to compliance demands. While important, it is short-sighted to look at governance as merely a means to pass audits. Today's attackers are targeting user credentials as the weak link in security. Reducing that risk requires reducing the attack surface presented by excessive entitlements, in an adaptive way that accounts for today's dynamic business environments.

    Loopholes in Identity Governance to Minimize Risk

I need a way to engage line of business managers with risk information during access certifications. How can I help them make better decisions about when to revoke risk, rather than rubber-stamp every entitlement?

What I want is something that allows me to...

Highlight risk and prioritize entitlement reviews

As attackers find ever more creative ways to trick users into exposing their credentials, identity governance must evolve beyond a compliance checkbox activity and do more to reduce the risk of excessive access. NetIQ Access Review provides customizable risk scoring to prioritize access certifications and engages the business with additional context, such as orphan accounts or separation of duty violations, needed for better decision making about who should have access to what.
