Changing the Face of Identity Management

July 21, 2008 —  (Page 4 of 4)
Because one of the biggest drivers changing the identity management industry is increasing compliance demands, it seems unlikely that the race for the ideal identity management system, which Leland described as bringing “a heightened level of security and compliance through a combination of identities and credentials and access management together in one management system,” will slow down any time soon. “As companies struggle with the regulatory compliance challenges at the national, federal and industry levels, they need to ensure that they know who is accessing what information, and be able to log and track that information,” said Leland.

A national survey released by CA in July showed that 44 percent of U.S. security executives reported that internal breaches have been a key security challenge over the past 12 months—compared with 42 percent in 2006 and 15 percent in 2003.

According to Liberti, identity and access management technologies are critical to managing these internal threats.

“By effectively managing who has access to what, customers can reduce the risk of compromised information,” she said. “Through well defined roles, strong identity management and provisioning and an effective process for ongoing entitlement certification, organizations can effectively answer the question of who has access to what—reducing risk and improving overall security posture.”
