One Identity Unveils Analytics and Risk Intelligence Solution


One Identity, a provider of access management, identity governance, identity-as-a-service (IaaS) and privileged management services, has announced a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution designed to reduce identity-related risk associated with improper user entitlements and access rights.

The solution, One Identity Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence (IARI), helps organizations detect cyber threats and inspect anomalies to remediate risk, according to a prepared statement.

The launch is particularly important because One Identity got its start in the traditional client-server software market. The company spun off from Dell in 2016, and is now racing to develop multiple subscription-based  identity and access management (IAM) services.

SaaS-based Risk Intelligence

IARI is a step in that direction. The platform's features include:

  • Alerting: Provides notifications when changes to user privileges move a user's profile into a high-risk status.
  • Business Verification: Offers visibility into user privileges when a change to a user's risk profile occurs.
  • Data Source Modules and Collector: Automates the gathering, processing and transmission of user privilege data.
  • Risk Classification Rules: Collects, processes and classifies user privileges into groupings to provide a baseline that can be used to identify high-risk areas.
  • User Risk Profile: Compares and contrasts user privileges against risk classification rules to identify high-risk accounts.

In addition, Starling IARI leverages a pool of data source modules and cloud-based data to aggregate user entitlement data and provides analysis of users' rights, One Identity stated. It analyzes and compares user privileges and pinpoints situations where privileges pose risk to ensure an individual's access rights are appropriate.

Starling IARI is now available globally.

One Identity Updates Privileged Access Management Solution

One Identity appears busy on the R&D front. The company earlier this month released One Identity Safeguard 2.0, a new version of its privileged access management solution.

With One Identity Safeguard 2.0, security professionals can leverage a cloud-based approval workflow to approve password requests from any device, according to a prepared statement.

One Identity Safeguard 2.0 also secures and automates the management of privileged or shared accounts to help security professionals mitigate potential data breaches or application misuse and meet regulatory and industry compliance rules, One Identity said.

What Is One Identity?

Founded in 1999, One Identity is a standalone company that provides identity and access management (IAM) services and solutions. The company today helps more than 7,500 customers manage more than 125 million identities.

One Identity is owned by global private equity firm Francisco Partners and Evergreen Capital, a New York-based investment firm. It is run as part of IT administration and management solutions provider Quest Software.

Previously, One Identity was owned and operated by Dell. Francisco Partners and Evergreen Capital acquired Quest as part of its Dell Software Group purchase in June 2016.

Meta Description: One Identity access management & identity governance launches the Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence (IARI) software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution.
