Applied Identity announced at Interop 2007 that it is now shipping the initial release of its ID-Unify identity virtualization appliance. ID-Unify reduces the cost and complexity of Access Management within the enterprise by consolidating identities across multiple and disparate identity stores, enabling the centralization of access policies and the facilitation of identity-based audit reports that mitigate risk and aid in regulatory compliance.
Paving the way for its release into the general marketplace, ID-Unify has been successfully tested and deployed within the network of a large U.S. government civilian agency. In utilizing ID-Unify, the federal agency was able to solve a long-standing policy and identity management problem that had remained unsolvable for years.
ID-Unify is unique in the marketplace, differing from other virtual directory products in that it provides:
1. Centralized management for creating, refining, and managing user access policy via role, user, group or application
2. Native interoperability with Applied Identity’s network-level access control appliance, ID-Enforce
3. User identity reconciliation regardless of whether the native IDs are unique or overlapping
