Today we announced an exciting new offering around Enterprise Role Lifecycle Management with one of our key GSIs, Deloitte, around Identity and Access Management (IAM). Identity has lots of hot sub-topics, but few are much hotter than roles, and with good reason. Roles are key to creating an abstraction between users, permissions and the resources to which they provide access. The abstraction makes management of users and what they can access easier, cheaper, scalable and improves security integrity. Roles are also a real key to another hot identity topic - compliance. But ask most companies and they'll tell you roles and role management is a real and non-trivial problem. Few organizations have a proper handle on them, which makes our new offering with Deloitte so timely.
Sun and Deloitte plan to roll out several new IAM offerings. The first consists of Sun's Identity Manager, Vaau's RBACx role mining, role lifecycle management and role reporting capabilities and Deloitte's Role Management for Enterprises (RM4E) service delivery methodology.
We'll be showing a demo of this new offering at the Gartner Identity and Access Management conference in London, June 25-26, and also in our hospitality suite at Burton Group's Catalyst conference in San Francisco, June 28. Come and check it out!
