Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition eliminates the risks, hassles and costs of manually managing identities across the user lifecycle in growing enterprises

By automating provisioning and deprovisioning, Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition saves your IT team hundreds of hours. When a user joins your business, transfers to another department or leaves, an intelligent provisioning action (based on your policies) is triggered in real time. Any event—even a change in a duty for a short-term project—modifies the user’s access privileges instantly and accurately.

Changes are implemented and recorded in the Identity Vault, a centralized, authoritative data store. The changes are also distributed and synchronized in real time across all your physical and virtual resources. Our wide range of drivers also includes connectors for SaaS applications such as and Google. This ensures the latest access information is propagated across every connected application and system in your environment. Access is provisioned even to applications in the cloud.

Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition provides a comprehensive reporting framework that allows you to create reports that clearly show who has access to what at all times, including complete historical records. When an auditor asks, you can instantly demonstrate the association among all users, resources and provisioning activities. These powerful and flexible report capabilities let you save queries, which you can use to prove your business enforces both internal policies and external regulations.

Boost IT responsiveness—along with your users’ productivity—with quick and easy identity and access management

With Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition, enterprise-wide identity management is supported by an intelligent provisioning infrastructure. It is based on roles and rules and workflows that require little human intervention. This makes identity administration much easier, and reduces helpdesk calls.

At the core of Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition is a unified packaging framework that contains high quality, loosely connected policy content packets. This framework is modular, so you can upgrade, downgrade, modify, or introduce new policies without disrupting your existing business services. This also lets you add new policies into your policy infrastructure with ease. What’s more, Identity Manager provides intuitive, pick-and-click capabilities. So you can make policy adjustments without the burdens of custom coding.

Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition also allows for easy integration of non-connected security policies through a simple drag-and-drop mapping of user permissions with Identity Manager roles. Our industry leading Roles Mapping Administrator console, provides you one view of all the roles and permissions tied to a target system so that you can easily integrate or update your roles to create a unified governing policy without any coding.

Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition also supports extensive self-service, a plus for both users and your IT team. The customizable, user-friendly dashboard allows business users to manage their own access, track access requests and delegate tasks. Plus, every activity is recorded to support audits. And as you would expect, Identity Manager supports single sign-on to the user application, letting users sign-in without having to re-enter their username and password.

The results? Costly helpdesk calls are reduced dramatically. Your IT team and network administrators can focus on projects that build the business. And users—from employees and contractors to partners and customers—receive up-to-date access that increases their ability to do their jobs.
