ING: Scaling Role Management and Access Certification to Thousands of Applications

Organizations deal with employee and user access certifications in different ways.  There’s collation of multiple spreadsheets, an intense two-week exercise by managers or use of access certification tools to do so across a handful of applications. But for most organizations compliance is about certifying user access for thousands of employees across hundreds of systems. Managing and auditing millions of entitlement combinations on a periodic basis poses a huge scale challenge.

ING solved the compliance scale challenge using an Identity Platform approach. Join the live webcast featuring ING’s enterprise architect, Mark Robison, as he discusses how a platform approach offers value that is greater than the sum of its parts and enables ING to successfully meet their security and compliance goals. Mark will also share his implementation experiences and discuss the key requirements to manage the complexity and scale of access certification efforts at ING. Mark will be joined by Neil Gandhi, Principal Product Manager for Oracle Identity Analytics.

In his latest blog he talks about the thought processes that drive the wrong behavior, and very cleverly shows how that incorrect thinking exposes weaknesses in our IT environments.

Check out his latest blog post titled: "The Screwtape CISO: Memo #1 (silos, stovepipes and point solutions)"

Webcast Q&A: Cisco's Platform Approach to Identity Management

Thanks to all who attended the live webcast we hosted on Cisco: Best Practices for a Platform Approach on Wed, March 14th. Those of you who couldn’t join us, the webcast replay is now available.

Many thanks to our guest speaker, Ranjan Jain, Security Architect at Cisco for walking us through Cisco’s drivers and rationale for the platform approach, the implementation strategy, results, roadmap and recommendations. We greatly appreciate the insight he shared with us all on the deployment synergies with a platform approach to Identity Management. A forward looking organization, Cisco also has plans for secure cloud and mobile access enablement so it was interesting to learn how the Platform approach to Identity Management today is laying down the foundation for those future initiatives.

While we tackled a good few questions during the webcast, we have captured the responses to those that we weren’t able to get to:

Q.Can you provide insight into how you approached developing profiles for each user group
A. At Cisco, the user profile was already available to IT before the platform consolidation started. There is a dedicated business team that manages the user profiles.

Q. What is the current version of Oracle Identity Manager in the market?
A. Oracle Identity Manager 11gR1 is the latest version of our industry leading user provisioning/identity administration solution.

Q. Is data resource segmentation part of the overall strategy at Cisco?
A. It is but it is managed by the business teams and not at the IT level.

Q. Does Cisco also have an Active Directoy LDAP? Do they sync AD from OID or do the provision to AD as another resource?[
A. Yes, we do. AD is provisioned using in-house tools and not via Oracle Identity Manager (OIM).

Q. If we already have a point IDM solution in place (SSO), can the platform approach still work?
A. Yes, the platform approach calls for a seamless, standardized framework for identity management to support the enterprise’s entire infrastructure, both on-premise or in the cloud. Oracle Identity Management solutions are standards based so they can easily integrate and interoperate with existing Oracle or non-Oracle solutions.

Hope you enjoyed the webcast and we look forward to having you join us for the next webcast in our Customers Talk: Identity as a Platform webcast series:

Dave Profozich on Oracle Security

Identity Management and Database Security are core to Oracle's security offerings. Dave shared his thoughts on Oracle as security company and his passion for security across the oracle stack. His commentary on the first Chief Security Officer summit is entertaining and provides some perspective on Oracle's security DNA. 

Take aways: 

  • "Security is the next ERP caliber platform"
  •  Heterogenous - secure the red stack and horizontally across the enterprise  
  •  Oracle is a strategic partner to secure your data and applications
