BURLINGTON, Ontario, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- N8 Identity, Canada's leading dedicated identity and access management (IAM) solution provider, today announced that its flagship product, Employee Lifecycle Manager® (ELM™), has broken new ground in the identity and access management (IAM) industry by preventing inappropriate access from being granted and identity governance violations from occurring, thereby ensuring continuous compliance with SOX, HIPAA, PIPEDA and other federal security regulations.
Currently, most vendor solutions take a reactive approach to identity governance by allowing policy violations to occur and then reporting on access violations after the fact.
"Many enterprise customers are beginning to realize that reporting and attestation are not enough to meet their identity governance requirements," said Jay O'Donnell, president and CEO of N8 Identity. "ELM is unique in the industry today because it enables continuous compliance, thereby significantly reducing risk, and generates enormous process efficiency and cost savings within an organization."
ELM delivers a consistent user experience across global organizations by providing a unified set of business processes. This approach solves compliance requirements by incorporating organizational controls within the business process that proactively prevent access policy breaches. In addition, the strong audit and reporting capabilities within ELM are essential for meeting SOX, HIPAA, PIPEDA and other federal security regulations.
ELM Key Facts:
- Proactive compliance and security: Manages identity governance through the complete lifecycle of a user within the organization, prevents inappropriate access from being granted and manages approved access to assets and information.
