Prolifics Identity Intelligence for Today's Security Challenges

The term security is really a wide term and it can mean different things to different people across an organization. One of the best frameworks used for enterprise security is the IBM Security framework, an architectural framework that deals with security and security issues of any organization. The IBM security framework simply break downs organizations security into different pillars such as People, Data, Application and Infrastructure.

In today’s business environment, security controls are implemented using different products in each of these pillars. Let’s take an example of the "People" pillar. The People pillar of the IBM security framework offers security in context of identities and accounts for an organization; and this is fulfilled using Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, which can be implemented using Identity Manager, Access Manager and Enterprise Single Sign-On products. The fact is - all these products are good at what they supposed to do individually, but these need to be constantly review to measure their effectiveness. To fulfill this gap, on security intelligence side, solutions like Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) can connect to each and every component of the environment and because of this, SIEM can better understand the security posture of the complete environment and the solutions are as good as a Big Boss of any IT environment.

Prolifics' Identity Intelligence solution is a tight integration of IAM and SIEM domain. When I say a tight integration, that does not simply mean collecting events from IAM environments. Identity Intelligence is about adding value to existing controls for intelligent security controls such as tracking and reporting misuse of access rights.

Prolifics has been a leader in leveraging IBM Security Software to deliver comprehensive Identity and Access Management solutions, and now Prolifics' new innovative Identity Intelligence solution using the IBM QRadar product family helps organizations more intelligently manage risks.

The Prolifics security team will be showcasing our Identity Intelligence solution at Gartner Identity & Access Management (IAM) Summit 2013. If you are attending the conference, be sure to visit us at booth # 411.
