Novell Releases Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition

WALTHAM, Mass., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Novell announced today the general availability of Novell® Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition to help customers secure the enterprise while controlling costs and meeting regulatory demands. Part of Novell's WorkloadIQâ„¢  portfolio, Novell Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition delivers a consistent, cloud-ready framework for managing identities across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

Novell Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition is the second offering in the Identity Manager 4 family, a portfolio of solutions developed to address each customer's unique identity management challenges. Simple systems integration and automation capabilities continue to be a major consideration for IT organizations. Novell Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition combines automated, rule-based user provisioning with current-state reporting, enhanced scalability and tight integration with Microsoft* SharePoint* and SAP* ERP systems. This integration also helps to secure the cloud by connecting to services such as* and GoogleApps*. Novell Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition enables organizations to be open and agile across physical, virtual and cloud environments.

According to Rencana, an independent IT consulting group, ease of integration is the most significant factor in differentiating TCO between identity and access management (IAM) products. In a recent TCO study, Rencana found that Novell's out-of-the-box provisioning connectors require up to 75 percent less systems integrator time to deploy than competitive products. Additionally, Novell IAM products require an average of 81 percent less time to generate required audit reports.

For California Highway Patrol, automation using Novell Identity Manager has nearly eliminated the time-intensive manual processes related to password management and has reduced the number of passwords users have to remember by 75 percent. "Each time a new user is added, they automatically receive access to the different applications they need based on pre-defined user groups," said Bruce McLeod, system architect of Network Services at the California Highway Patrol. "That's a huge timesaver for our IT staff and has strengthened security by ensuring the right people have access to the right applications."

With the release of Identity Manager 4 Standard Edition, Novell completes the Identity Manager 4 family of products first announced in May 2010.  The full family of products helps customers to reduce costs with seamless enterprise-wide user provisioning and enhances security and compliance with real-time user activity monitoring. Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition, released in October of last year, has already gained significant market traction with customers such as St. Vincent Healthcare, Rackspace and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

"Enterprises need the confidence that their business is secure and that they can meet the increasingly complex regulatory landscape without sacrificing business agility or incurring overwhelming cost," said Jim Ebzery, senior vice president and general manager, Security, Management and Operating Platforms, Novell.  "Effective user identity management is core to creating an Identity-Infused Enterprise.  The Novell Identity Manager 4 family of products provides our customers an efficient, unified and automated approach to identity and compliance management in physical, virtual and cloud environments."
