For many RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle customers and prospects, Active Directory (AD) serves as a foundational element of user and group information, as well as a source of legacy and management headaches. Many organizations report a pressing need to clean up deployments that suffered for years from lack of accountability, ownership and well-defined governance processes. Group proliferation and nested groups/memberships typically top the list of problems. Many organizations also report not knowing the assets to which their groups grant access. Through the use of Access Certification Manager (ACM), RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle offers the opportunity to improve the management of AD cost effectively with a focus on risk reduction and quick time to value.
