We are proud to announce Identity Manager 9.0. It’s a major leap forward in innovation and integration. See the below for key features that you asked for, including enhanced integration with platforms, such as Azure and SAP; as well as with One Identity solutions, including Active Roles, Safeguard – and for the first time ever, OneLogin access management.
That’s just the technical side. We’ve also strengthened the support behind One Identity Manager by offering extended support terms, which will reduce your worry over annual support renewal.
Here are a few highlighted features of Identity Manager v9.0. See our support notes (linked at the bottom of this blog) for all the new features.
Exciting services announcement: One Identity has announced Long-Term Support for One Identity Manager beginning with version 9.0. Now it’s possible to keep the same version for three years without having to upgrade to keep their product support.
OneLogin by One Identity, the newest member of our product portfolio, is recognized as a leader in the Access Management market. Identity Governance controls and records who has access to which resources.
With Identity Manager OneLogin integration you gain many advantages and visibility of user access rights. You’ll know who is using resources, how they are being used – or if the resource is being used at all. You’ll know if access rights have been used within a certain time frame. This eliminates a common, yet very risky, situation of too much user access. Idle access is a hacker’s workshop. Threat actors can go unnoticed and wreak havoc for long periods, if access rights are left unmanaged. You can limit damage from nefarious activities, such as phishing attacks.
Also, with Identity Manager integration with OneLogin an administrator can use MFA-based step-up authentication of OneLogin within Identity Manager when dealing with high-risk or high-priority resources or objects. Since Identity Manager is the keeper of the keys to the kingdom, this capability can deliver elevated security when accessing high-priority resources.
Azure SQL database support
Great news: Now, you can use Azure SQL as the primary database for Identity Manager data. This provides greater flexibility and enables your team to host your One Identity Manager instance in the cloud.
Enhanced Status Page authentication
Identity Manager v9.0 supports logging in with standard authentication modules, not just basic authentication. You can enjoy a more flexible and secure identity system.
