New HP OpenView software streamlines identity management, IT security
SYDNEY, Australia, 06 July 2004 – HP has introduced new software designed to streamline the process of managing user identities, access privileges and security across multiple applications and systems.
The identity-provisioning offering, called HP OpenView Select Identity, will be integrated with HP OpenView Select Access to form a complete identity management solution that automates access control and enables increased security for enterprises.
Research firm IDC expects the identity management market to reach nearly US$4 billion by 2007, up from approximately US$600 million in 2002. The effective management of identity, access and accountability on multiple applications and connect points is not only an operations and security necessity, it also provides a distinct business advantage by enabling enterprises to more efficiently and reliably deliver products and services.
HP’s identity management solution puts control in the hands of the business user with secure, scalable capabilities that provide ease of use, expedited deployment and the ability to handle change.
HP OpenView Select Identity, built upon technology that was part of HP’s acquisition of TruLogica in March, automates a full range of identity and access control tasks. By offering the flexibility needed to meet ever-changing organizational and regulatory requirements, the software allows IT administrators and information security professionals to instantly update end-users’ permission to use IT resources based on preset business policies and processes.
“Security management used to be about keeping people out. Today, it’s about letting the right people in, and having a strong, adaptive system in place to manage who can go where once they’re inside,” said Paul Muller, Marketing and Strategy Manager, HP Software, HP Australia.
“HP OpenView Select Identity adds an increased level of automation to HP’s identity management offering and gives our customers a way to reduce the time and resources spent on security management, while maintaining the integrity of the network.”
With the addition of HP OpenView Select Identity, HP OpenView Select Access supports the entire lifecycle management of identities. The combined technology streamlines the management of secure user access to network and enterprise resources, helping customers reduce overall IT costs.
