Typical Use Cases for Identity Management
- Use Case "Automation"
- Use Case "Manage Fileshare Access"
- Use Case "Cloud and Azure AD"
- Use Case "Compliance Audit"
Does High risk = high cost?
A distribution system operator had to provide secure access to highly protected systems in a decoupled infrastructure. Managing accounts and maintaining access was error-prone and cumbersome.
Automation Reduces Risk and Cost
go:Identity automated account and entitlement management by standardizing the processes. Transparency and high efficiency reduced an imminent security risk significantly.
Administration of access to fileshares
Automation, Self-Service and Approval Processes
With go:Identity, access to fileshares is now granted automatically based on the employee's tasks. Additional access can be requested by people in the go:Identity IT-Shop, approved by the responsible person and assigned without manual work from IT. Authorizations that are not required are now automatically withdrawn, or those responsible can now regularly check and correct them.
Challenge:Azure AD was excluded
An electronic parts manufacturer struggled to integrate Azure AD into centrally managed business processes for accounts and permissions.
Add cloud to On-Prem
go:Identity established a secure bridge to maintain all connections and account entitlement data with real-time synchronization and data consistency. Azure AD is now integrated from a cloud location.
Challenge:Failed Compliance Audit
A financial institution failed a compliance audit facing stiff financial penalties. They found their employee Access Management was out of compliance. In order to avoid this issue in the future, they required an automated management solution for employee lifecycle reporting and attestation.
Solution:Compliance Achieved Rapidly!
go:Identity consolidated all business application entitlements, including attestation and reporting, into a centrally managed interface and successfully mitigated the issues that caused their compliance failure.
Why use a preconfigured solution like go:Identity?
How can standard use cases be automated cost-effective?
go:Identity is up and running faster than more traditional Identity & Access Management solutions with the same use cases. By using our decades of experience deploying other solutions, we are able to include best practices out of the box and deliver functionality that typically takes several weeks or months to configure. This includes functionality like: user provisioning and de-provisioning, Role-based permissions, user self-service and approval workflow to name just some of the key processes that are included out of the box.

Typical go:Identity Landscape
Users and administrators simply work via a standard web browser go:Identity.
Ready-made integration modules, so-called IDM Connectors, exist for a large number of system types.
The prepared appliance is implemented in your environment in no time at all.
