Organizations Find Relief from Exhaustive Audit Processes In Four Key Steps

SAN RAMON, California — July 11, 2013 — Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity management software, explains how identity management software can make audit cycles easier and more efficient in its blog, "The Perpetual IT Audit: Hop Off the Hamster Wheel With Identity and Access Management Software." According to the blog, next-generation solutions that offer automation, user self-service, pre-built business rules and role-based access enforcement are now available to help ensure an accelerated, more streamlined IT audit process, while also saving the organization significant cost.

"Organizations dedicate countless hours to compliance audits," said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO of Avatier. "While necessary, these take valuable time away from other IT security tasks. By relying on automated identity and access management, the time and aggravation associated with preparing for and executing access audits will greatly diminish."

For organizations in highly-regulated industries, like health care and banking, compliance audit cycles occur with such frequency, they seem endless. No sooner has one task in the process ended when the next has begun — whether gathering system entitlement information, explaining the process to approvers or documenting exceptions to achieve compliance certification the blog explains.

But next-generation identity and access management software incorporates three key capabilities that will relieve these complexities and inefficiencies according to the blog.

  • User self-service is a key capability today's highly regulated organizations should look for in a next-generation identity and access management software solution. This feature not only drives down helpdesk service costs associated with access requests, it also frees IT personnel to focus on other critical tasks in the organization while empowering the business to make security decisions.
  • Role-based access provisioning is another capability, and ensures access to confidential data is controlled and limited to only specified personnel. Should roles change, permissions to access confidential data will automatically be updated in accordance with the change.
  • Finally, next-generation identity and access management software can simplify and automate data collection and reporting, greatly streamlining and accelerating access certification audits.
