Micro Focus Identity Governance and Administration Documentation

NetIQ Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) manages and governs digital identities and enforces appropriate access across the enterprise. With a unified governance framework, organizations can determine who has access to which resources and whether that access is appropriate. Scaling to billions of identities, IGA automates, and streamlines processes related to access requests, access certification, identity lifecycle management, provisioning, and compliance reporting. IGA detects changes as they happen in connected systems and adjusts security controls for continuous compliance, thus reducing risk and increasing efficiency for the organization.

There are two main components in the IGA solution:

  • NetIQ Identity Governance helps organizations run effective access certification campaigns and implement identity governance. Key features include certification reviews, micro-certifications, access request and approval, segregation of duties (SOD), and governance insight. Identity Governance can be deployed on premises or via SaaS.
  • NetIQ Identity Manager powers the entire identity management lifecycle, managing identities, and their associated attributes to minimize privileges. Key features include automated provisioning, identity attribute management, password synchronization, and data and event transformation to match organizational business processes.
