SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 11, 2013) - Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, suggests organizations leverage identity intelligence software to identify and understand all aspects of identity data for improved security and greater business intelligence in "How to Use Identity Intelligence to Identify the Good and Bad Within Your Organization."
"Identity intelligence software can be used to strategically reduce audit risks, clean up directories and mine roles," said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. "Additionally, used in conjunction with an identity and access management solution, identity intelligence delivers an even greater amount of data that could be used to further strengthen an organization's security."
Without a firm grasp on an organization's available identity data, information security professionals cannot properly analyze and decipher the data to understand their organization's identity landscape. As a result, valuable information that could be used to improve security is overlooked. For example, identity intelligence used to investigate core directories can reveal information on active or disabled accounts, last password change date, group memberships, access privileges and account policy information. And when combined with HR data available from other identity management software solutions and applications, information security professionals can determine if any terminated and existing employees still have active accounts or improper access in their organizations' systems.
Benefits like this make identity intelligence software a must-have capability for information security professionals, and its benefits are greatly extended when integrated with a full-featured identity and access management solution.
