Novell has announced the general availability of Novell Identity Manager 4 Advanced Edition; a product intended to provide consistent identity, security, and compliance policies for an organization’s entire IT ecosystem.
The company specifies that its new product will simplify the identity management provisioning process and deliver a consistent framework for managing identities across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
Originally announced in its basic form earlier this year, Novell says that Identity Manager 4 itself is based on feedback from more than 6,000 customers engaged in redefining enterprise-grade user provisioning and identity management.
The new advanced edition product integrates more sophisticated roles management, advanced workflow, and intelligent reporting to support the identity, access, and regulatory compliance needs of the most advanced enterprise or managed service provider.
"Novell Identity Manager 4 is central to Novell’s WorkloadIQ vision. A key part of this vision is to deliver a spectrum of cloud-ready identity and security solutions to meet today’s enterprise need for security," said Jim Ebzery, senior vice president and general manager, security, management, and operating platforms at Novell.
