Novell Identity Manager 4 released

Novell released their Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition which ensures consistent identity, security and compliance policies for an organization’s entire IT ecosystem. As a result, customers can simplify provisioning of users and better protect corporate data while reducing cost and complexity.

“Most identity management initiatives are not seeking to solve a single identity management problem, but rather looking to comprehensively manage the identities of employees, partners and clients,” said Phil Cook, identity architect, Identropy, a Novell partner.

“An effective identity management roadmap takes into consideration your business objectives, technical objectives, as well as a healthy understanding of how various identity management components interact. Novell Identity Manager 4 delivers a set of policy-driven components that automate security and resource management tasks helping ensure that your business policies are enforced consistently, while providing a strong framework for exception handling along with robust reporting” Cook added.

“Our company has experienced strong growth this year, and we needed an agile, scalable identity platform to meet our needs,” said Joseph Kinney, Systems Engineer III, Rackspace. “As we adapt and grow, Novell Identity Manager has the flexibility we require, from building roles on the fly to securing cloud applications.”
