Securely Connect Everyone Everywhere

in a Hyperconnected World

That’s the point. We are all so well connected these days that the security risks of unauthorized access is growing exponentially. Which is why, according to Gartner, “Identity and access governance is replacing user administration and provisioning as the new center of gravity for identity and access management.”  We do this every day for brands with operations that span the globe, literally. Join SDG and take advantage of secure access to applications, data, on the web or in the cloud.

Specifically, SDG can:

  • Reduce the risk of inappropriate access to sensitive data, and mission critical applications and systems throughout the enterprise.
     
  • Audit the health of your environment and recommend best in class solutions and upgrades.
     
  • Provide guidance on operational and capital expenses.
     
  • Get new implementations up and running faster based on experience gained from working with some of the largest brands in the world.
     
  • Implement Single Sign-On (SSO) and Federation, Password Management, Authentication and Fraud Protection, Roles-Based User Provisioning, Risk-Based Access Certification and Virtualized Identity Access. It’s a long list, but you get the idea.

Meeting the Challenges of the Extended Enterprise
As enterprises expand, they face new levels of complexity and risk generated by the ecosystem of employees, customers, business partners and regulations. The increased pressure on regulatory compliance within IT security mandates truly auditable systems and strong top-down controls.

Preventive, detective and corrective controls help to comply with regulations and to simplify audits, identify and remediate policy violations, recertify access and quickly create reports for auditors.  In addition, ever-increasing data collected and managed by organizations increases the risk of data breaches, driving up IT security costs.

IAG truism: you don't always get the apps you want;
you get the apps you need

IAG provides automation and control needed to scale to today’s business requirements.

  1. Define
    As more apps need to be accessed by employees, premise and cloud-based, defining roles is becomes more difficult.

  2. Understand
    It is vital to understand how employees access apps to build IAG processes to fit those needs.

  3. Develop
    More robust authentication and tokening is needed; password breaches have exposed major organizations.

With today’s dynamic business environment, it’s essential that your identity and access risk management strategy keeps up with the changing needs of your organization. Our strategic review is a half-day, business-oriented review designed to help you get the most from your IAM solutions, and identify the most effective ways to reduce the risk of inappropriate access of sensitive data, and mission critical applications and systems throughout the enterprise.

While the strategic review focuses on the business aspects of your organization, the Health Check looks at the technical areas. With the Health Check, SDG’s IAM experts meet with your IAM Leaders to assess the overall “health” of your organization, reviewing your current IAM implementation, workflows, connectors and data mapping. We provide you with valuable recommendations – from streamlining operational expenses and reducing capital expenditures to ensuring that you’re current with the latest IAM solutions, to prospective areas of expansion and additional automation. The Health Check can be performed alone, or as part of the Strategic Review, for a well-rounded examination of your organization.

A combination of business consulting and system integration, SDG’s comprehensive, best practices implementation methodology gets you up and running faster, giving you quicker time to value. With more than signifcant experience performing hundreds of successful implementations, our proven methodology drives your deployment from inception to production rollout and beyond.
