Organizations today have to manage access rights and accounts of hundreds or thousands of employees. Traditionally organizations have used role-based access control (RBAC) for granting access. However, this role-based access approach poses challenges since roles are not well-defined in the system, need to be mined, etc. A better approach is attribute-based access control (ABAC) for granting access to resources. Also some organizations rely on SAML-based JIT (just in time) provisioning without realizing non-compliance around user departure scenarios. IdentityDesk from GS Lab is a complete provisioning solution to help with your compliance needs.

IdentityDesk delivers functionality to meet your user life-cycle and provisioning needs. It has support for policy-driven provisioning (ABAC based) and is fully SCIM standard (version 1.1 and 2.0) compliant. It integrates with Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory (AAD). It has support for numerous target systems (like Salesforce, Office365, GoogleApps, Zendesk and more). It caters to your needs around a user and group provisioning.

IdentityDesk helps improve overall security posture and achieve higher levels of compliance, while reducing operational costs by automating the complete process. It ensures that there are no orphaned accounts, while providing complete view of “who has access to what” in the organization (a prime requirement from compliance perspective). It can be customized to support your business processes around user on-boarding, departures, etc.

IdentityDesk is Open (standards based), Modular (componentized architecture), Secure (security built-in) and Pluggable (adaptor based integration approach). It is geared towards small and medium businesses.
