Save Your Enterprise...Be an Identity Hero!

Do you have what it takes to be an Identity Hero? Well, now is your chance to prove it.

Your enterprise is in trouble, and like most heroes, you must swoop in at the right moment to save the day. It's a tall order to be a hero when you have SarBox monsters to slay, auditors to fend off, and access privileges to protect. As if neutralizing threats isn't enough, you must also rescue the helpless. With an enterprise to save, you must successfully integrate with partners and still provide single sign-on, provisioning, and role management to help your fellow employees.

If you have what it takes, prove yourself a hero by clicking here to test your identity management skills.
