BURLINGTON, ON, Oct. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - N8 Identity, Canada's leading dedicated identity and access management (IAM) solution provider, announced that it was awarded one of the largest IAM deployments in the world.
The client is a major Canadian food retailer ("Food Retailer") with over 135,000 employees and more than 1,000 corporate and franchised stores across Canada.
The Food Retailer will use the Employee Lifecycle Manager® (ELM™) Utility, N8 Identity's flagship IAM software solution, to create a consistent business process to pre-board, onboard, modify, and offboard all user types across the organization. In addition to leveraging existing IAM infrastructure for auto-provisioning, the client will also rely on ELM™ for proactive compliance enforcement to ensure that policy violations (i.e. inappropriate access grants) are prevented, rather than simply reported reactively for remediation purposes.
"Our client chose ELM™ because of the depth of its product capabilities and the pre-defined business processes that are built into our implementation model," said Jay O'Donnell, N8 Identity's CEO. "With more than 135,000 users across the country, it is essential that identities are created at the moment of offer acceptance and that all users have the right access to the right information throughout their lifecycle. ELM™ will also provide the proactive policy enforcement and analytics required to meet compliance requirements. We are proud to play a part in this exciting identity initiative."
ELM™, N8 Identity's industry-leading software, simplifies IAM by providing proven business processes for the proactive management of identities, access rights, assets, facilities, and analytics - with a consistent user experience - across global organizations.
