Classified Description

Enterprises have sensitive data stored and accessed through applications, databases, network devices, files and cloud apps in multiple business applications around the world. Identity governance is a mechanism to identify who has access to sensitive data and applications to prevent unauthorized users and orphaned users across the enterprise. Identity governance enforces access life cycle management process, right from granting access and periodically reviewing access privileges and revokes access privileges when user terminated. The process enables a centralized system where you have a workflow to manage user access reviews and entitlements at a single place for internal governance and auditing and for an external audit to review the user access controls.


Identity governance requires complete view off when user created, who has given access privileges, who is monitoring user privileges, entitlement and who is revoking access to these users. Identity governance and identity access management are two different product lines identity governance deals with access control compliance and user privileges and entitlement reviews. The identity governance is so important in the corporations to get a complete view of user privileges crossed the enterprise to minimize security breaches with insider threat.
