SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Avatier Corp., a leader in risk-driven identity and access management software, attributes stronger, more effective IT compliance management to a holistic approach to overall governance risk and compliance processes in "Keeping Your Ducks in a Row: Managing Governance Risk and Compliance." By integrating operational processes for governance risk and compliance into a single identity management software suite, Avatier's Compliance Auditor can more effectively addresses IT security and compliance management.
"When critical auditing and access certification processes break down, it is often due to the fact that they are executed through a patchwork of security tools that don't effectively communicate. This, unfortunately, also leaves the organization open to security breaches," said Nelson Cicchitto, chairman and CEO, Avatier. "Using an access certification software solution like Compliance Auditor in conjunction with its sibling products that manage user provisioning, risk management and password management protection means these organizations can more capably address all information security vulnerabilities."
Today's organizations are coming to realize that a breakdown of access certification processes can be attributed to a discordant and incomplete collection of GRC software solutions. When communication fails among these solutions, security breaches can fall through the cracks, exposing an organization to business risk. Compliance Auditor offers a number of features that ensure these cracks are plugged and that access certification itself is approached in a holistic fashion. For example, using a touch-enabled, Web-based interface, IT professionals can approve and revoke access, delete accounts, send access validation audit messages, and more -- anytime and from any device. Access revocation can occur immediately or after the audit is complete -- a unique capability stemming from Compliance Auditor's integration with Avatier's overarching identity access management system.
Indeed, Compliance Auditor reduces risk and makes access certification processes more effective when integrated with Avatier's entire identity management software suite, which includes user provisioning, risk management and password management protection as well as access certification compliance management capabilities. The result is a versatile suite that proactively detects problems, sends notifications to the appropriate parties and automatically mitigates risk before the entire organization is compromised.
