AMAG Technology is previewing Symmetry™ CONNECT, its new policy-based identity management system, at ISC West in Las Vegas between April 5th-7th.
Symmetry CONNECT delivers an easy-to-use, automated software platform to manage employee, contractor and visitor identities, satisfy regulatory audit and compliance requirements and reduce the administrative costs of the security team.
Previewing at ISC West is a completely new user interface, which provides security teams with a simple, intuitive, web-based solution to better manage identities, reduce risk and operationalise business. When used with Symmetry Access Control, organisations have a robust identity management system that utilises data to secure people, property and assets, and automates business processes for better operational efficiency.
Organisations manage three types of identities within their buildings: employees, contractors and visitors. Symmetry CONNECT manages these identities using a data-driven automated process that eliminates errors and reduces risk. Symmetry CONNECT automates on and off boarding of identities, replacing cumbersome manual based authorisation and workflow processes that rely heavily on email and spreadsheets. Using rule and role based access provisioning based on customer policies, access rights are updated or revoked automatically. The automation also tracks the identity throughout its lifecycle, tracking where the credential is used and how often.
Organisations can automate
Configurable workflow engine
Symmetry CONNECT puts the decision-making into the hands of the people responsible for compliance using a self-service access and credential request portal. Employees and contractors can request access based on an organisation’s policies, which is routed directly to the authorised individuals to approve or reject those requests. Symmetry CONNECT replaces multi-step manual processes with a configurable workflow engine that fits any organisation’s needs. Requests can be made and actioned from a smartphone, tablet or PC, and all activity is recorded in a dashboard for administrators to easily track and monitor. When access expires, a notification is sent informing authorised individuals.
Identity management made easy
“Symmetry CONNECT automates every aspect of identity management, from on and off boarding, to change requests, and recertifications for audit and compliance,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Client Services, Jeff LeBlanc. “Using this automated workflow-based platform, organisations can save money, reduce risk, and know when they are about to fall out of compliance and what needs to be done to remain in compliance. Symmetry CONNECT makes managing identities easier than ever.”
Organisations can automate cumbersome, manual electronic audits of all provisioned access, saving months of manual work. Companies can schedule audits based on their needs and requirements, and automate the recertification process so they never fall out of compliance. Dashboards manage compliance with notifications and reminders.
AMAG Technology understands that it’s not just what data and information you put into an application; it’s what you can get out of it. CONNECT provides end users with quick and easy access to all of their data. Reports can be created on the fly and provide parameters which allow customers to always demonstrate the controls necessary to remain in compliance. Reports can be delivered via email and easily shared.
