dotnext is a specialist Identity and Access Governance Management Company, with a vast amount of experience in architecting, deploying and managing Access Management and Access Governance solutions in the financial services industry in South Africa.
A strong User Governance framework is the thread which ensures that the right Users have access to the right Services, while providing business advantage through self-enrolment, user lifecycle and a quality customer experience.
Identity management is a foundational security component which ensures users have the access they need, and that systems, data, and applications are protected from unauthorised users. dotnext’s adoption of a “Policy of Least Privilege” model, is key in reducing the risk posture of an organisation. This principle resides by providing a user with the least amount of access required to do his/her job effectively, and “stepping up” that access on a temporary basis where needed.
Access management solutions securely manage access to business-critical applications and data. These solutions provide centralised authentication and authorisation, policy management and access control services for Web resources as well as systems and hosted applications. Single Sign-On (SSO) improves the user experience, reduces help-desk costs, centralises the management of two-factor authentication functions, security tokens and users across the enterprise.
A privileged account is typically the administrator, super-user or root account for a given system, which provides the capability not only to reconfigure and/or apply modifications to a system and/or its components, but also to access any information that is held on the system. Security and management of these privileged accounts is a crucial aspect of governance and security in any organisation. Privileged accounts effectively are the “Keys to the Kingdom” for most organisations. When users require use of a privileged account, the “Username” and “Password” is checked-out from the automated self-service Password Safe.
Identity Management provides user self-service, automated user – lifecycle management (i.e. joiner, mover and leaver) across heterogenous platforms, access reviews and separation of duty policies. It facilitates a rich policy framework for enforcing corporate security policies and enabling detailed audit capabilities.
