With Tivoli Identity Manager, we have an absolute fail safe that as associates leave, their access is removed. The process is instantaneous.

For many companies, it can take days or weeks when an employee departs to revoke his or her access to buildings and IT systems. At ADP, the process is instantaneous thanks to its work with IBM and IBM Business Partner Pontis Research

Business need
Manual identity management processes made it time-consuming and costly to track when and if access rights are revoked.

With a view to becoming “identity aware,” ADP worked with IBM Business Partner Pontis Research and IBM to automate processes for user account provisioning, de-provisioning and access management in its Active Directory, remote access and facility management systems.

● Vastly increases security by reducing time to revoke access from weeks to seconds ● Reduces administration and help-desk costs while enhancing visibility of user access ● Provides zero-day and zero-based provisioning and federated access to resources ● Enables identity awareness
