  • (1888PressRelease) April 20, 2013 - "IBM's Security Identity Manager is the market leading Identity and Access Management solution providing for policy based user provisioning and governance solution. ISIM helps organizations administer, secure, monitor and certify users identities and their access to applications and systems. With the TGUD extension, ISIM users can now provide access governance to unstructured data on shares, folders and SharePoint sites", said Joe Camilleri, Tangentia's Security Solution Partner. "We are pleased with IBM's validation of our product. TGUD brings tremendous value to ISIM customers to meet the ever-increasing regulatory and compliance requirements".

    Unstructured data, by virtue of not having a centralized entitlement store, sits outside normal identity and access controls, forcing IT to ignore data security or invest significantly in stand-alone solutions outside their preferred IAM methods. With unstructured data representing - by some reports - 80% of all organizational data this lack of process and control leaves organizations open to the worst impacts of data loss.

    TGUD's integration with ISIM will enable users' access view to unstructured data, process enforcement to prevent unapproved changes and effective business ownership of access through periodic entitlement reviews. "Before TGUD, organizations either have to purchase another product or use tedious manual processes to achieve access reviews to sensitive information residing on shares and folders", added Joe Camilleri. The CSO(Chief Security Officer) at a leading Grocery Retailer on the East Coast said " With TGUD, ISIM users can now utilize a familiar product and processes to manage governance of unstructured data which is the bulk of the data in our company".
