Automated Provisioning and Governance

Automated governance and provisioning removes cost and uncertainty from managing identities and access

Move from Legacy to Modern IGA 

As organizations become more digitalized, many realize that their existing IGA solution no longer fulfills all new requirements.  A modern identity governance solution offers identity lifecycle management, automatic provisioning, seamless workflows, and optimized helpdesk capacity. 

The key to efficiency is automation and empowerment. Omada’s solution provides automated identity governance best practice processes out-of-the-box. Each process and workflow – as well as governing policies – can be easily configured to meet specific business needs without the need for code development.   

 

Automated Identity, Role, and Access Management 

  • On- and offboard identities
    Ensure that new employees are productive from day 1, by giving them the necessary access to do their job, and revoking that access when the employee leaves the organization. Manage identities over their full lifecycle to accommodate changes in employment status and responsibilities.
  • Role and Policy Management.
    Access rights can be based on roles, while flexible policy-based access controls can assign a set of access rights quickly and easily to users with the same job role. Roles are defined to match organizational structure, locations, context, or control procedures.
  • Self-Service Access Request.
    Automated policies and workflows enable users to request access when needed, with approval by their manager or the relevant system owner with automatic Segregation of Duty (SoD) checks. Managers can also request access on behalf of their employees.

 

Why Your Company Needs Automated Provisioning

Automated provisioning is the natural evolution of manual user provisioning solutions. Switching to automated provisioning tools reduces risk, improves efficiency, and limits the burden of onboarding and offboarding teams by hand.

It revolutionizes the user provisioning process flow by eliminating many steps inherent within previous access control processes. The manual provisioning method is highly cumbersome and has firmly been phased out as a legacy process.

Just as IAM provisioning has changed, companies must change with it to meet the demands of today’s working environments.

 

Streamlined Onboarding 

Manually onboarding new members of the workforce, particularly in larger companies, takes up considerable resources. Automated governance solutions eliminate the burden of onboarding and free up IT and human resources departments.

Organizations can add new full-time employees, part-time staff, and contractors into their existing identity management systems by choosing to automate user provisioning. It is a service that saves countless hours on adding and tweaking user access, whether assigning based on role or seniority, and can be implemented quickly with the right solution.

The natural result of using the power of cloud based auto-provisioning is a dramatic increase in productivity. Rather than waiting for the right person to manage the process, users know they will have access to the facilities, applications, and systems from the moment their initial shift starts.

Additional productivity for IT and human resources means they can better use their time on other critical business functions.

 

Vast Cost Savings

Automatically onboard staff and realize significant cost reductions. The cost savings of user provisioning automation are displayed through enhanced efficiency and productivity.

Manual provisioning consumes hours of time for any enterprise. Manage everything from a unified platform and allow essential team members to dedicate their time to more critical tasks.

Provisioning automation further boosts cost savings by eliminating user downtime. Make the problems of user downtime a thing of the past by automating the process from day one.

Automated provisioning via a reliable platform is an investment that repays itself many times throughout the lifecycle of the software.

 

Reduce Provisioning Errors

Human error can cause a catastrophe for the day-to-day operations of any business. Manually onboarding hundreds of people dramatically increases the margin of error, especially as they require access to applications and data that lives throughout the hybrid environment.

Mistakes could mean users do not gain access to what they need to perform their roles or gain access to sensitive applications they have no right to explore.

Automated provisioning reduces the risk of cybersecurity threats, making businesses more secure when dealing with temporary additions to their teams during events, seasonal boom periods, or one-time projects.

Organizations can improve the user experience by gaining full visibility via a unified dashboard. At a glance, decision-makers can see who has access to what while being able to tweak access rights at the click of a button.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is automated provisioning?

Provisioning via automated systems allows companies to automatically assign access rights to tools, applications, and vital business areas based on parameters like which department they are a part of.

Whether adding hundreds of employees at once or temporary contractors, automation improves security and is a sign that a business prioritizes its ability to reduce risk.

 

How does automated provisioning work?

Automated provisioning helps organizations grant access to applications and systems based on set roles and permission levels. It is connected to an organization’s identity management platform, which sets functions through the system.

Based on their defined roles, the end user is automatically granted access to the applications they need to perform their duties. A change of permission or a departure from the organization will automatically adjust or revoke their privileges.

 

Can automated provisioning accommodate unique roles?

Sometimes a contractor may be required to perform a highly specific role on a one-time basis. Although most provisioning tools are marketed toward companies with full-time employees, businesses can create unique profiles when needed to accommodate those roles.

The power is in the hands of companies to adjust the access privileges of profiles to fit the needs of smaller teams or even individuals when it is required.
