Systancia, a recognized French software vendor in cybersecurity, virtualization and digital trust, releases a new version of Avencis Hpliance, an Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution that centralizes the management of employees’ identities and authorizations. With new advanced features, including identity reconciliation and rights model, version 5 of Avencis Hpliance is available starting this month.
Identity and access management of business applications directly concerns the companies’ business departments. Such management, essential to the company’s IT security, is not directly the responsibility of the Information Systems Department: it must therefore be simple, accessible to all professions and nevertheless particularly effective. That’s what Avencis Hpliance is all about.
The solution developed by Systancia, defines and centralizes the management of digital identities, automates the “upstream” data input, the provisioning of local and cloud applications, and the operation of data flows and validation workflows. Thanks to the automation feature, the information system is more agile, more responsive and the user productivity is improved.
Avencis Hpliance v5, available starting this month, announces several new features designed to facilitate the administration and management of identities and access rights to business applications for each user in the organization, in order to implement effective controls and ensure the security of data.
Identity reconciliation module
Systancia has integrated an identity reconciliation module in Avencis Hpliance v5, in order to automatically centralize and consolidate all the digital identities of an organization and simplify its daily management.
The module allows the upstream provisioning of identities from various solutions used by organizations (HR and payroll software, employee directory, etc.) in order to merge digital identities: a user who previously had separate accounts in each solution has now only a single account.
In case of a company takeover, or if a corporate-group wishes to centralize all the identities of the employees of its subsidiaries, the Avencis Hpliance solution is able, from different sources, to consolidate all the information related to each user. In case of homonymy, the workflow mechanism allows to validate, or invalidate, that these 2 identities correspond to the same person.
Evolution of the rights model
Avencis Hpliance is based on the OrBAC model – Organisation Based Access Control -, which intuitively allows to quickly implement the rights model representative of the company’s organization. With this new version, Systancia facilitates the context definition in the rights model. It allows, by a simple modification of an administrator, to unblock a set of rights for users.
Another new feature is the management of right groups, in order to make users’ right allocation easier (manually or from the model). They can now be managed according to the user’s role within the organization (accounting, human resources, IT, etc.). Contracts have also been implemented in order to manage an employee’s contracts with the organizations on which he depends and the associated rights.
Avencis Hpliance provides clear and immediate answers to the persons in charge of auditing and controlling the company’s information system. In order to guarantee the right compliance to the auditors, Avencis Hpliance v5 allows to launch regular campaigns asking a certain number of service managers to certify the users’ rights.
These new features increase Avencis Hpliance’s capacity to provide flexible, high-performance identity and access management that significantly reduces user threats, eliminates generic and shared accounts, automates processing, ensures consistency across enterprise repositories, provides detailed reports on the allocation of rights and resources, and helps organizations improve their compliance with the GDPR.
