Dell One Identity Manager Safeguards and Empowers Organizations by Granting Appropriate Access to Needed Resources

Dell announces the recent selection of Dell
One Identity Manager by Trillium
Health Partners and Dell itself
to address the challenges presented by today’s constantly shifting user
access landscape, which includes the need to control access to a moving
target of applications and data, and to provide access to everything
from everywhere, without sacrificing security. This move marks the
renewed emphasis by organizations to enable appropriate access, while
eliminating the risk of employees having more access than they need to
do their jobs. Employees with too much access can become internal
threats, which are the most prominent threats in the security landscape
Although organizations increasingly find that inappropriate access by
end users, partners, and administrators is one of the vulnerabilities
putting them at greatest risk, they also must adhere to compliance
regulations without sacrificing users’ ability to get to what they need,
when they need it. The choice of Dell One Identity Manager signals a
focused move to stay ahead of these evolving requirements.
With Dell One Identity Manager, organizations have a modular, integrated
and affordable way to establish, execute, audit, and control access, no
matter what needs to be accessed, who is accessing, how, or from where.
While improving security, the solution also boosts business agility by
enabling the organization to assign permissions faster — to the right
people — increasing productivity and achieving compliance faster, and
with less cost and effort.
Simplifying Global Identity and Access Management
Dell’s deployment of its Identity Manager solution has provided
significant value to the company, increasing compliance and operational
efficiency across its global network. The challenge of appropriately
granting and tracking the access privileges and permissions on the
corporate network for Dell’s 150,000 employees, consultants and
contractors worldwide was due to an ongoing process of employee and
consultant onboarding, as the organization looked to grow its salesforce
and acquired new companies.
With the deployment of Dell One Identity Manager, Dell has grown from
its original identity and access management (IAM) solution, and now can
rely on a global, intelligence-driven IAM platform that ties identities,
permissions and roles to business rules. The company can track and
report on rights, activities and policies in real time using the
solution’s access management and reporting tools. The Identity Manager
platform also has helped Dell save time by improving self-service and
workflow, placing important tasks, approvals, and reports in the hands
of line-of-business personnel rather than IT.
John Milburn, executive director, Identity and Access Management,
“Dell understands that IAM needs continue to change with new threat
landscape and governance needs, and for that reason, we continue to add
capabilities to our Identity Manager solution so our customers can stay
ahead of the next threat. Dell places a high priority on leveraging its
own IP to create more secure, agile and productive work environments for
its employees. We’re pleased to provide such a valuable contribution to
protecting and better serving not only our own employees, but also our
customers, who use it to secure their clients, patients and partners.”
Alan Daines, Chief Information Security Officer, Dell
“With a team of more than 150,000 employees, consultants and contractors
worldwide, it was critical that we focus on providing a secure
environment that did not stand in the way of people doing their jobs,
and also could evolve with business needs. We needed a sound IAM
solution that would address our large-scale needs, and still be flexible
enough to grow with our business. Dell One Identity Manager uniquely
fits the bill both now, and where Dell is heading in the future. This
deployment puts us in a much better position to evolve with market
movements and create opportunities for company growth.”
Iain Paterson, Information Security Officer, Trillium Health Partners
“Improving security in a healthcare setting is a journey, and, at
Trillium, we’ve begun the journey by addressing our access challenges.
It has always been difficult to efficiently manage and provide
appropriate privileges for our complex and diverse user base, but, with
Dell One Identity Manager, we’ve transformed business processes while
addressing this core problem. We’ve reduced our risk profile and
improved the IT/business relationship with faster provisioning of users,
simplified roles and privileges, and attestation, and we intend to
leverage even more of Dell One Identity Manager’s functionality as we
continue on our security journey.”

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
