Identity Governance and Administration (IGA)

In Gartner’s Words, IGA or Identity Governance and Administration refers to managing Access rights for Individuals, Roles, Groups, and identity repositories within organizations, both on-premises and in the cloud. Ensuring appropriate access to resources across highly connected IT environments.

For an IGA platform, it is necessary to have a broad array of capabilities in order to meet the needs of the ever-growing complexities of modern organizations and IT Systems, these features that complete an IGA Suite are: Identity life cycle management, Entitlement management, Support for access requests; Workflow orchestration; Access certification Provisioning via automated connectors and service tickets; Analytics and reporting.

In 2020, Gartner chose to retire it’s incredibly viral Magic Quadrant for IGA. This was because the Magic Quadrant is designed to capture the most significant innovations in a particular market, but since IGA has already had it’s exponential growth phase, and has reached a state of maturity, it has made measuring improvements much more, but that doesn’t mean that growth has stopped. With the shifting of existing work models in the post-COVID world, IGA has seen growth and expansion to previously unimaginable heights.

IGA today has expanded and adapted to manage increasingly complex Identities spanning across different cloud platforms to provision access and entitlement of the vast repertoire of applications that modern enterprises use today in their ever-expanding workflows.

You can learn more about how EmpowerID competes in these ever-expanding domains in this all-new 2022 Leadership Compass Report by Kuppinger Cole, which examines the market for solutions that increase security in business application environments for managing cloud entitlements—measuring the growth of IGA and Access Management platforms beyond the traditional limit of imagination, taking a much more abstract and out-of-the-box approach to evaluate the needs of modern enterprises.

EmpowerID Customer SIEMENS Wins Prestigious Identity and Cloud Award at KuppingerCole's EIC Conference 2021

Posted by Alexandre Spoerri on Wed, Dec 08, 2021

Munich, Germany & Online – September 13-16, 2021 – EmpowerID, a proven leader in helping organizations get identity and access management (IAM) right, with its global partner Avanade, are happy to announce that their long-standing customer, Siemens, a German multinational conglomerate and the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe, was recognized by industry-leading analyst firm, KuppingerCole, as the winner in the "IAM at Scale" category at this year's European Identity and Cloud Conference (EIC).

Siemens received the prestigious award for using the EmpowerID platform to manage one of the world's largest Azure AD installations. The client managed to protect vital assets while keeping the business running, which dramatically reduced IT response time and provided a vastly improved user experience for about 300,000 users.

EmpowerID automatically inventories, monitors, and automates the management of the following in the Siemens' environment:

  • 3,000 Azure license requests per month
  • 30,000,000 automated Azure License Service Assignments
  • 2,000,000 accounts, including AD and Azure AD
  • 2,000,000 Groups, including AD and Azure AD
  • 50,000,000 Group memberships
  • 900,000 Nested Group Memberships

The EmpowerID architecture and solution delivery always anticipate the growth and size of its customers, delivering a global solution for Siemens that simplified managing identities for hundreds of thousands of users and millions of accounts further.

EmpowerID's powerful policy engine automates the assignment of the appropriate M365 licenses to users joining the Siemens organization based upon their roles and attributes coming from authoritative upstream systems. This automation ensures that users are licensed appropriately and can be productive from Day One. The ongoing lifecycle management functionality monitors for user position changes and readjusts the user's license to the most appropriate at all times to meet their job requirements. Most importantly, EmpowerID will reclaim the license to optimize the license expenditure when a user leaves the organization. To enhance governance and enable 24/7 self-service, the EmpowerID IT Shop allows users to request optional licenses for which they are eligible. These requests can then be routed to the appropriate individuals for approval.

To deliver greater security and convenience to its users, Siemens is also rolling out Azure application onboarding using EmpowerID's user-friendly IT Shop interface. A Zero Trust approach empowers application owners to onboard applications in Azure without having direct access to the Azure portal or being granted high-risk privileged access. As a result, security at Siemens is considerably improved by having a reduced attack surface for their Azure infrastructure, all combined with a superior user experience.
