Identity management systems are designed to do two things at the same time: support privacy and security enforcement standards, and have business access. This blog primarily discusses the architectural components of Identity IQ with certain functionalities, advantages, configuration policies, etc.
Organizations should be able to use their identity solution to enable clear and comprehensive controls on access to data and software, allow for proper access requests, and have timely provisioning of access rights, regardless of how regulatory demands change or evolve, or the number of new vendors, staff, and other people change positions or come on board.
Compliant businesses must introduce access and identification controls in today's agile environment to prevent data breaches and minimize market risk whilst streamlining enforcement to reduce IT costs and boost adult efficiency.
To efficiently handle their problems, companies need a solution that can keep up with regulatory criteria and access demands while mitigating costs, audit failures, and access-related risks. To face these challenges head-on, SailPoint IdentityIQ is needed.
1) Compliance Manager
2) Lifecycle Manager
3) Governance platform
4) User provisioning
SailPoint IdentityIQ Compliance Manager automates common administration, reporting, and auditing procedures while simultaneously enhancing identity processes such as policy enforcement and access certification.
Compliance Manager assists in focusing controls on the services, privileged access, and users that pose a significant risk. It also assists in the prioritization of the most important compliance tasks.
Access Certifications: It is widely used to check access permissions on a regular basis to ensure that they all comply with policy requirements and are appropriate for the user's job role. Internal control and regulatory enforcement are the most common uses for access certifications.

Policy Enforcement: Consists of a series of detective and protective controls that ensure that the company meets the specified policy automatically.
IdentityIQ Access Certifications centralizes and translates professional identity data across resources into market-relevant and rich content, making it easier for business users to understand what they're certifying.
Allows for consistent access verification and analysis, as well as monitoring and recording, to ensure that user access permissions are in line with their job functions.
Policy Management allows for policy compliance that improves organizational security and complies with regulatory standards while lowering risk.
Violations are detected early on, and offending access is automatically removed and redirected for analysis.

Audit Reporting and Analytics
IdentityIQ allows you access to a comprehensive suite of audit analytics and reporting that provides insight into the efficacy of regulatory controls in cloud-based systems and the enterprise.
Exhibits organizational regulatory controls, such as policy breaches, risk metrics, and remediation operation, using robust charting and pre-defined reports.
The SailPoint IdentityIQ platform is a next-generation, market-leading technology based on over a decade of best practices, expertise, and knowledge to elevate your identity software. Many of the world's biggest and most diverse organizations use IdentityIQ to solve their most important governance concerns. IdentityIQ tackles the limitations of first-generation technologies and manual provisioning procedures with best-of-breed identity governance, while simultaneously offering a stable, extensible interface to guarantee that your needs are addressed today and in the future.
IdentityIQ manages all identities throughout their entire lifecycle. IdentityIQ can execute birthright provisioning (based on employee work type/role) to the required applications and programs when an identity (i.e. individual) enters an enterprise. Automatic event notifications may create provisioning and de-provisioning requests as an individual switches positions within the company, ensuring that they have the right to have access for their current role and that any access that is no longer required is disabled or deleted. When an employee exits, an automated workflow can be set up to uninstall accounts and alert administrators so that access can be transferred if needed.
Advantages of Automated Identity Lifecycle Management
1) Minimizing the risk
Establish the conditions that control what people should ask for and do depend on their positions in the business. Users have access to the right tools for the right purposes due to Lifecycle Manager. Organizations will close the loop by using IdentityIQ Compliance Manager to conduct routine certification campaigns, access checks, and provide a complete audit trail from start to finish on individual demands, giving them a better understanding of who has access to whom and when and where the access was given.
2) Minimizing the IT Helpdesk Load and Costs
End users should handle their own authorization requests, which relieves IT organizations of any of their workload. Business users can request full self-service access through IdentityIQ, while IT administrators have total discretion over what access business users can request. IdentityIQ can be designed to build self-service portals and streamline the process of requesting and providing access to on-premises and cloud services using a versatile workflow.
3) Improve Efficiencies
Throughout a user's lifecycle with an organization, whether the user is an employee, consultant, or business partner, automatic provisioning controls the business processes of authorizing, changing, and revoking access. Changes in user access can be provisioned dynamically using a wide library of direct connections for applications like Workday and SAP, or synchronized with IT service management tools like ServiceNow.
4) Automate Policy Management
You will use IdentityIQ Lifecycle Manager in combination with IdentityIQ Compliance Manager to identify separation of duties (SoD) policies and other policy concepts that provide controls so you can stay consistent with internal policies and federal regulations by using IdentityIQ Compliance Manager's comprehensive policy engine. To avoid toxic access combinations (for example, Accounts Payable vs. Accounts Receivable: guarantee that the people who accept the checks can't write the checks to minimize the likelihood of fraud), robust policy definitions can be established. Managers may also write policies that encourage them to make exceptions if required.
5) Integration of Privileged Access Management (PAM)
The IdentityIQ PAM Integration Module works with existing PAM solutions to boost security and reduce risks by allowing you full access and clear control over your privileged accounts. The PAM module, when used in conjunction with IdentityIQ Lifecycle Manager, assists administrators in controlling and regulating privileged identities and their underlying access, allowing for consistent governance. Administrators will also certify both privileged and conventional access. The PAM module further contributes to increased efficiency by streamlining the lifecycle maintenance of privileged account access in accordance with best practices. SailPoint is leading the implementation of the industry's first standard for connectivity between PAM and Identity Governance solutions with the launch of the PAM module, enabling simple integration with most PAM solutions on the market today.
6) Integration with Identity Governance for Files
SailPoint SecurityIQ expands the SailPoint identity governance framework to provide a robust approach across all applications and files by regulating access to sensitive data. SecurityIQ provides enterprise-level identity governance by identifying sensitive data and implementing effective access controls, as well as real-time visibility, to optimize security, mitigate enforcement risks, and promote greater productivity across on-premises and cloud storage systems.
All of your cloud platforms and services are discovered and protected by SailPoint Cloud Governance. It automatically learns, monitors, and secures access using AI and machine learning, without slowing down your business.
