Product Report: CA GovernanceMinder™ - 70837

Report Details

CA Technologies acquired Eurekify, a leading provider of role mining and role engineering, in November 2008. Using that technology, CA Technologies has built the current product CA GovernanceMinder. The product is tightly integrated with CA IdentityMinder™, the Identity Provisioning product provided by CA Technologies, and follows the same architectural and user interface paradigms. However, it supports other Identity Provisioning products as well.

Features are increasingly also supported by the CA CloudMinder™ offering for cloud-based delivery models. Role mining is still the strength of the product. However, customers should keep in mind that successful implementations of Access Governance rely first and foremost on well-established processes, organizations, guidelines, and that a top-down approach is preferred. Role mining is not the core technology but more a supporting feature.

Among the outstanding features is the integrated support for user activity monitoring, adding a dynamic view to the static management of access. Another is the new integration with the Privileged Identity Management products of CA Technologies. Yet another important feature is the tight integration with Service Management tools, especially the ones from CA Technologies itself. While being tightly integrated with CA IdentityMinder, standalone deployments are supported as well.

CA GovernanceMinder is a solution that is definitely worth evaluating, based on its strong feature set and the tight integration with other products from CA Technologies. However, it might also act as a standalone solution on top of existing Identity Provisioning tools. We strongly recommend evaluating the product, focusing especially on the features in addition to those connected with role mining.

Cross-Border Verification with LIGHTest

Cross-Border Verification with LIGHTest

LIGHTest leverages on existing infrastructures to verify electronic transactions. This ability is especially useful for transactions that are not created in the same trust scheme or country as the entity validating the transaction. This is mainly because creating new infrastructure takes time, money and possibly other unforeseen costs. This post shows an example of how to use LIGHTest in practice. Let us assume there are two businesses that are working together for the first time, one from [...]
