WHY YOU WANT TO UPGRADE TO RSA® IDENTITY GOVERNANCE AND LIFECYCLE VERSION 7.0.2

Blog Post created by Kevin Yentz Employee on Apr 11, 2017

IDENTITY RISK IS BUSINESS RISK:
In 2016, 63% of confirmed data breaches involved weak, default or stolen passwords (Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report). Identity has emerged as the most consequential threat vector.

 

Now is the time to upgrade to RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle Version 7.0.2 to address identity-based risks and deliver continuous compliance for your organization. Our approach incorporating risk analytics and business context to identity management, means you are getting more than basic provisioning and governance.

 

WHAT WILL YOU GET FROM UPGRADING?

 

BETTER COMPLIANCE AND RISK MITIGATION
Visibility and control into all identities including privileged users all in one place with PIM/PAM interoperability. No longer manage privilege accounts separately, which opens up vulnerabilities for highly sought after accounts and compliance issues. Manage it all from one platform.

 

IMPROVE BUSINESS ADOPTION
Better adoption by the business with integration to ServiceNow. Users will be able access and make requests via the portal that is already used for other IT and business requests in the organization instead of accessing a siloed portal.
