Avatier was founded in 1997 to promote the use of delegated administration IT tools. We have always taken a 'treat the business user as a consumer' approach to automating IT operations and self-service business enablement. Avatier continues to lead in the automation of IT identity management operations and business user self-service.
The death of "least privilege" signifies the true coming of IT automation and business user focus self-service. Avatier's self-service password management, user provisioning, access governance and group management tools are architected as "people-centric security" systems. Avatier continues to advocate ultimately an IT security solution must empower business users by providing them with tools to protect and govern their organizations.
Employees, contractors, consultants, suppliers, partners, the channel, and even customers need access to enterprise systems. Many also assume multiple roles during their identity lifecycle making Role Based Access Control (RBAC) obsolete.
Avatier Identity Management Software (AIMS) uses attribute-based access control to define access to critical data and systems.
Gartner recognizes enterprises must provide a "who" view based on analysis. Identities must be indexed in a way that dovetails with business operations through intelligence features. Identity analytics and intelligence (IAI) are foundational in Avatier's existing architecture and platform for the future. Our tools infuse an organization with analytics, trends and alert capabilities never before experienced.
Gartner declares this prediction a game-changer. So did KuppingerCole, the leading Europe-based analyst company for identity focused information security, in 2012. When you add the Internet of devices to the Internet of people, you end up with assignment management.
The KuppingerCole White Paper details the future of Identity and Access Management and the role IT automation and user focused self-service administration play in business enablement.
Assignment management represents the driver behind self-service business operations. It explains why every business user. ABAC makes assignment management possible while identity intelligence adds security and efficiency to lower cost.
