Streamline identity life cycle management

Managing employees and their access privileges is a critical aspect of administration in organizations around the globe. It is a crucial part of identity governance and administration (IGA) to provision users, grant them access permissions, modify them during their tenure, and then remove all the privileges during deprovisioning.

The process of managing user identities and their evolving access privileges is called identity life cycle management. It covers the full life cycle of a user in a network and covers every aspect of identity life cycle management from the day they are on-boarded to their last day in the company. This also includes device identity life cycle management.

Why use an identity life cycle management solution

Managing identity and access provisioning life cycles can be a grueling task and can take up a lot of time and effort of the administrator. Using inefficient and manual processes to provision users and manage their privileges can be tiresome. Not having an automated process to re-provision access privileges if the users take up new roles, or remove the permissions altogether when they exit the company can make matters worse. If user account life cycle management is not done accurately and quickly, accounts of employees who no longer work in the company will remain in the network long after they are gone. Rogue or unhappy employees or contractors can exploit these out-of-use accounts and use their privileges to steal confidential data or perform a cyberattack.

This is why it is important to use an identity life cycle management solution to overcome these challenges. ManageEngine ADManager Plus, a digital identity life cycle management tool, can help you improve productivity and perform error-free IT operations. It also helps tighten the security of your organization by removing out-of-date user accounts and eliminating privilege creep.

ADManager Plus- Your identity governance and life cycle management solution

Identity and access life cycle management, when done manually, can be tedious and can add to the administrative workload. Manually creating user accounts for every new employee, applying appropriate permissions for them, modifying or revoking their access when required, and deleting stale user accounts can be a time-consuming and lengthy process. ADManager Plus helps you automate the identity and access provisioning life cycle in your organization.

With ADManager Plus, you can not only create users in bulk but also perform bulk user modification and deletion. Use templates for the creation and modification of digital identities to reduce discrepancies across the organization. Manage not only Active Directory and Microsoft 365 objects but also perform user provisioning for Google Workspace, all from a single window. You can automate the IAM life cycle steps using our automation and orchestration features. ADManager Plus also allows you to sync your employee data from your human capital management (HCM) applications for efficient administration.

You can even use templates for user creation to eliminate discrepancies across the organization.

If a user's role at work changes, you can alter their access permissions accordingly. Use the ADManager Plus IAM user life cycle management features to revoke privileges and delete the user accounts when they exit the company.
