Hawthorne, NJ (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
STEALTHbits Technologies, a leading developer of Data and Access Governance solutions announces that IBM has validated the StealthAUDIT Management Platform (SMP) as 'Ready for IBM Security Intelligence'. Customers of IBM’s Security Identity Manager (ISIM) platform can now integrate with StealthAUDIT to automate governance of their file system and SharePoint repositories.
ISIM is the market leading Identity and Access Governance solution providing automated policy-based user provisioning to applications and systems. The platform is highly valued for reducing cost, complexity and risk associated with managing user roles, identities and access rights across the IT infrastructure.
Unstructured data, which lacks a centralized entitlement store, sits outside normal identity and access controls making it the final frontier for automated governance. With as much as 80% of corporate information residing in file systems and SharePoint, there is a great need for automated visibility and control over these types of data repositories, especially if an organization hopes to avoid the consequence of data loss.
With StealthAUDIT, organizations can use ISIM to provision, review, modify and revoke access to file systems and SharePoint using the same workflows they are accustomed to for application and system access.
“The growing importance of Identity Access Governance makes the integration between StealthAUDIT and ISIM an obvious win for our clients,” said Sean Cataldo, VP of Product Management for STEALTHbits. “We are very pleased that IBM has certified our product. Together, StealthAUDIT and ISIM offer a simple, automated and seamless mechanism for helping organizations standardize their approach to provisioning, protecting and reporting on access to their data.”
Companies interested in the IBM Security Identity Manager (ISIM) and StealthAUDIT integration can contact Charlie Palella at STEALTHbits - Charlie(dot)palella(at)stealthbits(dot)com.
