Oracle Announces Enhanced Oracle Identity Analytics

Providing the advanced identity analytics that business managers need to meet increasingly complex time consuming compliance requirements, Oracle has announced the latest version of Oracle Identity Analytics (OIA), a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g and the Oracle Identity Management 11g product family.

With the release, Oracle Identity Analytics is intended to simplify access review certification with business-centric views and actionable dashboards, enabling  a reduction of errors in the certification process and increasing user productivity by up to 80%.

Highlights of the new release include re-designed business-friendly access certification views supported by rich identity risk analytics and context that make it easier and faster for customers to achieve compliance; advanced sorting, filtering and search capabilities on tabular views with toggle screens for improved user experience and faster signoff; and visual risk Indicators that provide a clear High/Medium/Low score associated  with user roles, resources, and entitlements to allow managers to quickly recognize high-risk user access.

"Enterprises increasingly need to achieve organization-wide compliance, but the end-goal often requires an unrealistic amount of time and resources," says Marc Boroditsky, vice president, Oracle Identity Management. "Oracle Identity Analytics offers both the appropriate scalability as well as the comprehensive and intuitive functions necessary to streamline how users, roles and entitlements are managed within an enterprise. With seamless integration into Oracle's existing identity management portfolio, these advanced capabilities simplify enterprise compliance and help ensure the security of critical company data and information."

OIA provides aggregated risk metrics along with in-depth historical context, allowing approvers to focus their attention on critical applications and associated audit risks, and enables customers to scale compliance initiatives supporting millions of user entitlements across thousands of applications, whether on premise or in the cloud, without compromising speed or integrity.

In addition, its integration with Oracle Identity Manager 11g enables Oracle Identity Analytics the to provide an accurate closed-loop remediation solution including controls for preventive segregation of duties.
