Logic Trends Provides Strategic Consulting Services to Rapidly Automate Compliance and Provisioning Functions
AUSTIN, April 18, 2011 – Logic Trends and SailPoint today announced that CUNA Mutual has implemented SailPoint IdentityIQ™ as its identity governance and provisioning solution to minimize risk, achieve compliance and improve business efficiencies. CUNA Mutual engaged with identity and access management specialists, Logic Trends, as its strategic implementation partner. CUNA Mutual defined its identity management requirements using Logic Trends’ proven IAM5™ methodology. The company then selected IdentityIQ because of its intuitive user interface and fully integrated identity governance and provisioning capabilities.
CUNA Mutual Group, with nearly $15 billion in assets and over 4,000 employees, is a leading provider of financial services to credit unions, their members and customers worldwide. CUNA Mutual has a business relationship with 7,265 credit unions, which equates to 96 percent of all U.S. credit unions and represents 86.4 million members. For 75 years, the company has maintained a single focus to protect their customers. The company turned to Logic Trends and SailPoint to proactively manage and mitigate risks associated with user access privileges. In fact, after deploying SailPoint IdentityIQ, CUNA Mutual will actively use risk measurements to determine the timing and frequency of user access certifications. The company will also use IdentityIQ to automate the provisioning of user access, essentially mitigating risk while increasing administrative effectiveness at the same time.
“CUNA Mutual wanted to improve the accuracy and efficiency of access certification and more efficiently control the provisioning and de-provisioning processes,” said Brad Jobe, director of information security at CUNA Mutual. “SailPoint IdentityIQ was the obvious choice because it delivered identity governance and provisioning capabilities in a single solution. It was also immediately evident that it would be easy for our business managers to use, and provided us insight into the risk associated with user access. Through our partnership with Logic Trends, we were able to define our identity management requirements, evaluate a number of the industry available solutions and quickly see results from a rapid first phase implementation.”
“CUNA Mutual understood that there are a number of potential gains that can be realized with the proper investment in both strategy and technology,” said Robert Block, vice president of strategy and services at Logic Trends. “They took an innovative approach by implementing a closed-loop process that allowed them to implement best-practice certification and remediation and increase compliance maturity, while concurrently automating their provisioning and de-provisioning procedures. We were able to work with SailPoint to implement a single identity governance and provisioning solution quickly, delivering immediate efficiencies to the customer. CUNA Mutual can now more effectively meet corporate and industry compliance requirements as well as realize immediate administrative savings.”
