Product Report: Siemens DirX Identity 8.1

Report Details

Siemens hat sich mit der seit 2007 verfügbaren Version 8.0 von DirX Identity als einer der technisch führenden Anbieter im Bereich des Enterprise Provisioning etablieren können. Mit der seit August 2009 erhältlichen Version 8.1 hat Siemens die Funktionalität wiederum erheblich erweitert. Das Pro-dukt zählt zu den technisch marktführenden Lösungen. Zudem hat Siemens für den Bereich seiner Sicherheitslösungen inzwischen wieder eine klare und sinnvolle organisatorische Struktur geschaffen, nachdem es im Rahmen der Umstrukturierung des Siemens-Konzerns zu einiger Unruhe gekommen war. Damit ist Siemens DirX Identity 8.1 eine ernsthafte Alternative im Enterprise Provisioning-Markt, gerade auch bei hohen Anforderungen, die in Evaluierungsprozessen berücksichtigt werden sollten.

Die Stärken liegen unter anderem in der SAP-Integration, die nicht nur bei Connectoren, sondern auch bei den Verwaltungsschnittstellen umgesetzt ist. Darüber hinaus sind auch das sehr flexible und leistungsfähige Rollenmanagement und die insbesondere mit der Version 8.1 sehr leistungsfähigen Workflows zu erwähnen. Außerdem lassen sich inzwischen sehr viele Funktionen über Web Services nutzen und damit flexibel in bestehende und neue Applikationen und andere Management-Werkzeuge integrieren.

Die Funktionen für das Kennwortmanagement sind ausreichend. In Version 8.1 zeigt sich auch das Auditing deutlich verbessert. Zu erwähnen sind hier die signierten Audit-Einträge, aber auch Funktionen für signierte Anforderungs- und Genehmigungsworkflows. Außerdem hat Siemens bereits in der Version 8.0 ein Modell für die Unterstützung von SoD (Separation/Segregation of Duties) mit entsprechenden Auditing-Schnittstellen eingeführt. Für die zentrale Zusammenführung und Auswertung von identitätsbasierten Audit-Einträgen aus unterschiedlichen Quellen bietet Siemens seit Juni 2009 als Ergänzung zudem das Produkt DirX Audit an.

Compliance, Risk & Security

Whether public, private or hybrid clouds, whether SaaS, IaaS or PaaS: All these cloud computing approaches are differing in particular with respect to the question, whether the processing sites/parties can be determined or not, and whether the user has influence on the geographical, qualitative and infrastructural conditions of the services provided. Therefore, it is difficult to meet all compliance requirements, particularly within the fields of data protection and data security. The decisive factors are transparency, controllability and influenceability of the service provider and his [...]
