San Ramon, CA — October 7, 2015. The global leader and innovator in the user-centric identity management industry, Avatier Corporation announces at the Gartner ITxpo 2015 in Orlando October 4th through the 8th, the release of Avatier Identity Management Suite (AIMS) 10, the newest and most powerful upgrade to its solution used by millions of users and IT departments worldwide. More responsive, more secure and more accessible than AIMS 9.5, Avatier AIMS 10 represents a new "mobile first" responsive framework and quantum leap in web development designed to automate IT operations, optimize identity management and allow organizations to maximize efficiency without compromising security. The company will be exhibiting at booth #1043 in the Pacific Hall of the Walt Disney World Dolphin and Swan.
Companies are demanding versatile access to 24/7 operations such as single sign-on, disabling access, resetting passwords and unlocking accounts. These corporate requirements have fueled the enhancements in AIMS 10 resulting in an integrated functional interface that can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Users of AIMS 10 can now perform these operations just as easily from mobile devices and tablets as well as the more traditional laptops and desktops.
Avatier continues to innovate and introduces in AIMS 10 the new Mac Reset Kiosk™. Now, Mac users, just as Microsoft Windows users have been accustomed to doing, can reset passwords without needing to log onto the network.
Secure Identity Management starts with Avatier's new Encryption Key Rotation™ by enabling manual rotation of customer-unique encryption keys. Government agencies, the financial industry, and all organizations vulnerable to zero-day exploits will be comforted to discover that Avatier AIMS 10 includes a state-of-the-art security layer that provides protection on top of today's most current encryption technology. Rotation of encryption keys for secure data and the planning of how often an organization rotates keys are now available with Avatier AIMS 10 along with two-factor, multifactor, and two-party recovery in the event the unique encryption keys are lost.
Updates to privileges now automatically update entitlements to all previously assigned users. Policy and role changes are problematic for companies that depend heavily on automated IT operations. Modifying privileges for current users, managing risks associated with changes and maintaining compliance can degrade operational consistencies and cause loss of overall integrity within the company. AIMS 10 avoids the issues of noncompliance and misuse of privileges by coordinating privilege changes automatically to ensure everyone remains up-to-date with company policies.
AIMS 10 now allows you to manage and create users of ServiceNow by accessing the software's user-centric identity management system. You can perform ServiceNow user management actions in AIMS such as enterprise password management, role assignments, single sign-on processes, and group membership mandates. Avatier makes it possible to capture and consolidate each AIMS event in ServiceNow.
Chairman and CEO of Avatier Nelson Cicchitto focused on three main initiatives with this release. "Designing and building an advanced mobility identity management framework, improving on security originally developed for the most secure military installations, and simplifying the world's most ‘user friendly' Identity and Access Management Suite by making it available from any device. These were the most challenging tasks we have undertaken thus far," explained Cicchitto.
"Our customers have validated this release, citing a much improved user experience, while administrators receive dynamically updated built-in contextual training videos and knowledge base help. Avatier has created the world's first abstraction layer for a contextual help system with integrated structured learning."
