MicroFocus / NetIQ - Access Manager (NAM)

Identity and Access Management has four goals: To grant authorized access to users, eliminate risks of unwanted access to systems, protect and enhance the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of user data, and make it easy for owners to execute the information security policy of the organization.

Every year, it gets harder for your enterprise to secure web access. It can be a challenge to find a solution that addresses Access Management for your mobile, cloud-based, on-premises and intranet needs. MicroFocus / NetIQ – Access Manager (NAM) removes the complexity of Access Management and provides you SSO using just one technology.

Why You Need MicroFocus / NetIQ – Access Manager (NAM)

The benefit of this technology is seen when you look at the steps that your enterprise must follow when hiring or firing an employee. Below is a typical scenario involving an employee we will call Steve.

  • Your enterprise hires Steve. Steve quickly becomes frustrated because he’s wasting time trying to access different systems
  • IT is tasked with getting Steve connected to the various systems. But they do not have all of the necessary data. So they are now on the phone with management
  • Additionally, IT needs to update each user’s identity manually in every system. Your enterprise’s help desk costs skyrocket
  • Coincidentally, Steve is transferred to a different department. IT has to go through the whole process again. Data and access rights for every system have to be changed manually. This gets Steve, and the IT department frustrated
  • When Steve leaves the company, there is a real security issue. IT must immediately disable Steve’s access to the company’s system to foster a secure and compliant environment.

Any errors in this process could put your company’s data at risk and lead to compliance issues. Your employees, your clients, and your enterprise partners trust you to keep private information and data safe. Failure to do this can lead to revenue loss and a damaged reputation.

MicroFocus / NetIQ – Access Manager (NAM) helps you by simplifying and streamlining this process.

This is accomplished by minimizing the length of the process. IT needs to employ to create, change, or remove user accounts.

Some of the features Access Manager uses to accomplish these tasks include:
