Master Identity Management with Audit and Compliance Dashboard

The Audit and Compliance Dashboard (ACD) is a powerful, flexible, and user-friendly add-on for NetIQ Identity Manager from OpenText.
It enables monitoring of the Identity Management system, drivers, and workflows in real time. Moreover, it shows exactly when an attribute was changed for specific objects. This Identity Management tool also enables compliance monitoring and review of all the events that have taken place with users, groups, roles, etc., in the last days, weeks, month(s), or more.

For a more complete and powerful Identity Management solution, the NetIQ Identity Manager can be combined with the Audit and Compliance Dashboard to fill the gaps left by missing functionalities related to directory monitoring and reporting.
Applying the ACD to the NetIQ Identity Manager adds security to the Identity Management environment, as all events within the driver channels are monitored (including status messages received from the connected system). Compliance is also improved using the integrated object history browser along with its comprehensive and comparatively easy-to-manage reporting.
