Novell Identity Manager 3 delivers unprecedented ease of use to help customers rapidly deploy and manage automated, policy-driven user provisioning solutions

WALTHAM, Mass. ? Dec. 5, 2005 – Press release – Novell today announced the upcoming worldwide availability of Novell® Identity Manager 3, the company’s flagship cross-platform provisioning and identity management solution for security and compliance. Novell Identity Manager 3 delivers advanced visual modeling, workflow and self-service capabilities, giving companies flexible, yet powerful, new tools for meeting their security and compliance needs. As a result, customers will be better positioned to simplify and control user access, protect sensitive data, reduce administrative costs, and comply with corporate and regulatory mandates.

“Manually provisioning user accounts is time consuming and expensive, but more importantly a lack of automation results in inconsistently applied policy. Provisioning systems introduces stronger auditability and reduces security and compliance risks,” said Mike Neuenschwander, vice president and research director at Burton Group. “With Identity Manager 3, Novell significantly enhances the product’s workflow and approval routing features.”

Meeting Compliance Needs

Available Dec. 13, Novell Identity Manager 3 is the only solution to offer an intuitive, visual framework for mapping complex identity management infrastructures, helping customers meet compliance needs by automatically documenting an entire project. Unlike other offerings that require manual coding and configuration, customers can use Novell Identity Manager 3 to visually model implementations and easily reuse configurations to reduce deployment times and test “what if” scenarios before deployment.

Improving Security

Novell Identity Manager 3 makes it easier than ever before for users to interface with critical corporate identity management processes. Employee access to network resources can be based either on corporate roles or on distinct approval processes. The new add-on Provisioning Module for Novell

Identity Manager 3 delivers advanced workflow capabilities to help customers streamline user administration by automating approval requests and designating role, group or individual assignments that help define approval processes.

Advancing Self Service

As users become more involved in managing and requesting resources, self-service capabilities are increasingly important both for employee productivity and to reduce demands on IT staff. Novell Identity Manager 3 makes it easier for users to request resources, delegate approvals and administration, and use proxies to manage their own access needs.

“Our user community is constantly changing, and it can be tough to keep pace with evolving roles and requirements,” said Brian Hobbs, IT director, Hunter Douglas. “With Novell Identity Manager, we can quickly create and adapt new, complex approval workflows. Novell makes it easy for us to establish an authoritative source of identity information that lets users manage basic tasks without compromising security.”

Kent Erickson, vice president of identity and resource management at Novell, said, “Security and compliance are at the top of every CIO’s list.

Novell’s identity management solutions deliver on all fronts: reducing costs, improving compliance and enhancing security. It’s a ‘must have’ for every IT department in the world today.”
