Guidehouse’s identity governance and administration implementations can safeguard sensitive personal and proprietary information
For organizations that need to streamline, improve, and more effectively manage their application, mobile device, and cloud access controls, Guidehouse’s identity governance and administration implementations can safeguard sensitive personal and proprietary information.
An organization’s applications host a variety of sensitive data including proprietary information, personally identifiable information, and financial transactions. A breach or access vulnerability in these systems could have serious reputational, regulatory, compliance, and insurance risks for an enterprise. Additionally, poor access management practices often result in ineffective access controls, slow manual provisioning of access, and cumbersome access reviews.
Fortunately, identity governance and administration (IGA) tools provide a robust and streamlined solution to establish user identities and facilitate user access management within applications and systems.
While other applications require identity access provisioning, the implementation of IGA within applications requires special care. Being able to assign functionality that limits users to the actions or information that they are authorized to access is a critical risk-management process. Once implemented, IGA functions as a key component of the access life cycle within the organization, allowing it to dynamically limit the content specific systems users can access within different applications.
Guidehouse’s experts can help organizations set up IGA processes and tools to control or limit access to applications to prevent misuse and unauthorized access to the data those apps host. Through our experience with complex IGA implementations, Guidehouse has developed streamlined processes to help facilitate integrated IGA programs in financial applications.
With significant risks involved in access management for information technology applications, IGA presents an opportunity for hardening of security and access controls. However, implementation is often seen as a challenge. Guidehouse’s streamlined IGA implementation processes can help organizations easily leverage IGA tools to simplify access management while protecting sensitive data.
