Aveksa Works with HP to Deliver Full Business Identity and User Context with HP Security Intelligence Platform
WALTHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., the provider of the industry's most comprehensive Business-Driven
Identity and Access Management platform, today announced that it has
worked with HP to provide full business identity and user context with
the HP Security Intelligence platform to enhance threat detection for
customers. In addition, Aveksa has received HP ArcSight (News - Alert) Action Connector
certification and has joined the HP Enterprise Security Technology
While Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions provide
enterprises with visibility into activity across the IT infrastructure,
such as external threats, internal threats and compliance pressures,
they can benefit from added identity context of individual IT users.
To address this opportunity, Aveksa provides customers with access to
full business context for identities, users and activities, all within
the HP ArcSight Security Intelligence platform. By using the full set of
identiy information maintained by Aveksa in conjunction with data
provided by HP ArcSight IdentityView, enterprises can make better
decisions and better respond to today's security threats.
Another benefit of the two companies working together is that customers
can leverage real-time activity and threat intelligence for true
closed-loop validation and enforcement of enterprise access control
processes. By doing so, enterprises can now detect granting or usage of
sensitive entitlements, and validate whether they are truly compliant
with corporate access request policies and processes.
"In order for SIEM solutions to provide enterprises the best threat
detection, it is imperative that they can distinguish between authorized
and unauthorized access at a very granular level," said Deepak Taneja,
Chief Technology Officer, Aveksa. "By working with HP, our customers
benefit from a fully-integrated Identity/SIEM solution that enables a
richer detection of threats by incorporating granular identity context,
such as user roles, profiles, access rights and Information Security
"Increasingly, enterprises are looking for tightly-integrated solutions
to solve their complex IT security challenges while reducing operational
complexity and mitigating critical security threats," said Buck Watia,
Director of Business Development, Enterprise Security, HP. "HP is
working with Aveksa to provide customers with enhanced context for
identity and user access, which is crucial in quickly detecting threats
and reducing business risk."
