Aveksa Launches MyAccessLive, a New Cloud-Based Identity and Access Management Solution

WALTHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

Aveksa, Inc., the leading provider of Business-Driven Identity and Access Management solutions, today announced MyAccessLive, a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) Identity and Access Management solution. This new offering provides integrated visibility and control of both cloud and on-premise applications in a single cloud-based solution. Aveksa's new MyAccessLive offering helps companies ensure that user access to all applications is easy, appropriate and properly managed.

Organizations today, especially midmarket firms, are struggling with two Information Security trends:

  • The increased threat landscape is raising the importance of having a secure and well-managed IT environment.
  • The rapid and widespread adoption of SaaS applications by business users has greatly added to the complexity of managing user access across the enterprise.

Because of these trends, organizations must establish better control of their users by gaining a deeper understanding of user identities, roles and responsibilities. They also need to implement a quick and cost-effective easy way to manage and control user access to information resources, without requiring the extensive development efforts associated with traditional Identity Management solutions.

While all companies, regardless of size, need to address these trends, midmarket enterprises face additional challenges since many have limited IT legacy infrastructures and many lack expertise in information security. Because ofthese limitations, many midmarket companies are looking to SaaS offerings to address IT initiatives such as Identity and Access Management.

"Software-as-a-Service offerings are very attractive to midsize companies that are looking to optimize IT initiatives without adding expensive technology resources and infrastructure," said Scott Crawford, Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. "Cloud-based Identity and Access Management solutions, such as Aveksa's MyAccessLive, provide these companies an easy and affordable way to gain enterprise-wide control over who has access to their application and data resources."

Built on a secure and reliable on-demand cloud services platform, Aveksa MyAccessLive enables mid-sized organizations to easily give their users access to information resources while providing visibility into who has access to what resources and ensuring that access is appropriate and based on users' job responsibilities.

With Aveksa MyAccessLive, organizations can quickly, easily and securely:

  • Establish better control of users' access to all applications, both on-premise and in the cloud.
  • Ensure users have only appropriate access to applications, based on a complete picture of users' roles, responsibilities and job functions.
  • Establish an easy, user-friendly process for reviewing user access and ensuring that it's appropriate.
  • Reduce SaaS costs by validating and approving user access, eliminating unnecessary user accounts.

"While midmarket companies do not face the complexities of managing IT access for tens of thousands of end users and hundreds of thousands of user entitlements, they still need to efficiently ensure that everyone using applications has the appropriate level of access," said Deepak Taneja, Chief Technology Officer, Aveksa. "MyAccessLive provides smaller enterprises with an easy-to-use cloud-based solution to quickly and cost-effectively manage and control access to IT applications and data for all of their users."

MyAccessLive is currently available for evaluation, and will be priced on a subscription model based on the number of people whose access is to be managed. Click here to learn more about Aveksa's MyAccessLive.
