Whitepaper: Identity and Access Governance: Bringing Business and IT Together

by NetIQJun 20, 2012

As different as IT and business needs might seem, in the case of identity-management and access-governance systems, you cannot meet the needs of one without meeting the needs of the other. It is imperative that both systems work together to meet and exceed business and IT objectives. While IT must support compliance efforts, provide access, keep systems secure and update technology and computing environment, business managers are concerned with staying compliant, passing security/regulatory audits, mitigating risks, quickly responding to internal and external customers and having the ability to view the entire enterprise in an easy-to-understand and use system.

Proper research, planning and partner selection will ensure that your organization's IAG solution meets both the business and IT needs or your organization. Read this white paper, to gain insight:Identity and Access Governance: Bringing Business and IT Together.

Webcast: Serving Two Masters: The Secret to Successful Identity And Access Management Deployment

by NetIQNov 22, 2013

It's been said that you can't succeed if you serve two masters. In the technology field, Identity and Access Management (IAM) may be the exception. The need for IAM is driven by two equal forces in the enterprise: The requirement for data security to defend against intrusion and theft, and the need for governance and compliance in a regulated or highly structured industry. Both forces involve mitigating against significant risks that can put an enterprise in peril, and potentially devastate the complex ecosystem of employees, partners, investors and customers that every enterprise supports.

The good news is that the twin drivers behind IAM deployment make it easy to reach a consensus, and as a result, most business decision makers are in agreement that IAM is a must-have technology solution for operating a secure, successful enterprise. However, an InformationWeek Analytics survey last year found that there is still rampant dissension in the ranks when it comes to choosing and deploying an effective IAM strategy for an organization. The report identified three major reasons why IAM deployments can fail: Lack of prioritization, lack of clear objectives, and unrealistic expectations.

In this live webcast from Dark Reading and NetIQ, you'll learn how to avoid these costly mistakes, and how to focus on proven best practices and best-in-class technology to ensure that both masters -- security and compliance -- get exactly what each requires from your IAM environment.
