Centralized Identity Consolidation

Identity Consolidation with Xiting Security Platform

Consolidate Local Users into Global Identities for Comprehensive Analysis

Identity consolidation (IC) is a pivotal aspect of modern identity and access management (IAM) strategies, aiming to streamline user management and enhance security across diverse systems and applications. At its core, identity consolidation involves merging local user identities scattered across multiple systems into global user identities.

This consolidation enables organizations to achieve a unified view of users’ identities and activities, regardless of the disparate user IDs assigned to the same individual in different systems.

Centralization of Identities

Your Benefits

One of the primary benefits of identity consolidation lies in its ability to facilitate comprehensive risk analysis (e.g. cross-system SoD). By consolidating user identities, organizations gain a holistic understanding of user access rights and activities across all applications and platforms. This unified view enables more accurate risk assessment by identifying potential access anomalies or conflicts that may arise from inconsistent user identities across systems. With this insight, organizations can proactively mitigate risks and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

Efficient Business Role Management for Increased Security and Consistency

Furthermore, identity consolidation plays a crucial role in business role provisioning. With disparate user identities merged into global user profiles, organizations can streamline the process of assigning and managing user roles and permissions. Business roles can be defined at a global level, allowing for consistent role assignments across applications and systems. This not only simplifies user provisioning but also enhances security by ensuring that users have the appropriate access privileges aligned with their roles and responsibilities.

Automated Solutions for Compliance

It also simplifies access certification and user access review processes across multiple systems. With a unified view of user profiles, organizations can conduct comprehensive access reviews, ensuring that users have appropriate access privileges aligned with their roles and responsibilities. This streamlined approach enables organizations to efficiently identify and address access anomalies or compliance issues, mitigating risks associated with unauthorized access or segregation of duties conflicts.

Additionally, by automating access certification workflows and integrating with identity management solutions, organizations can enhance the accuracy and efficiency of their user access review processes, ultimately improving overall security posture.
