Navigate ’15: A Deeper Dive into IdentityIQ 6.4
As you know we hosted our Navigate conference this week in Austin. One of our first sessions to kick-off the customer portion of the conference was to cover our recent release of IdentityIQ 6.4. Our product line manager, Gianni Aiello, presented to a full house at the Omni Barton Creek. Clearly, lots of interest in the recent updates we’ve made to the industry-leading IAM solution. For those of you who were not able to listen in, I wanted to provide you a few updates on what we’ve been able to accomplish in this release.
As you might have already seen, the biggest new feature in IdentityIQ is a responsive mobile user interface that makes using IdentityIQ as easy on a mobile device as from a desktop. We know that IT has faced increased demand from their business users to be able to access applications that are critical to their job at any time, anywhere. Mobile is everywhere – and it should be part of your IAM strategy. We addressed this by enhancing the mobile user experience to allow our customers the ability empower their business users to participate in the organizations compliance and security efforts from the device.
In addition to the mobile interface, we’ve also been busy working to integrate identity with the broader IT ecosystem. In speaking with customers, we know that many gaps exist between the different systems in use to manage and monitor risk and security processes across the enterprise. We’re now at a point where IAM can bring these disparate systems together in new and innovative ways to help you improve security and lower risk. For identity to be at the center, this year’s Navigate theme, it has to interconnect to the broader IT environment.
A key step towards this future are two critical integrations we unveiled in IdentityIQ 6.4 that the crowd at Navigate appeared very excited – a privileged user management integration with Lieberman Software and a service management integration with HP Service Manager.
The Lieberman Enterprise Random Password Manager integration allows customers to obtain privileged access entitlements instantly within SailPoint. They can then review access via certification with automated remediation as well as request additional access with governance checks in place.
By integrating various IAM scenarios through HP Service Manager, which extends our support for multiple sources of fulfillment, allowing organizations to create a ticket in HP to support a provisioning event (manually). They can in turn conduct closed loop auditing to track ticket completion.
We have also been busy delivering new features and enhancements in IdentityIQ to continue innovation across core competencies in order to support the innovative ways you are using the product.
