Haier Group, a consumer electronics manufacturer, has simplified management of access rights, making identity management a tool for business enablement, with NetIQ Identity Manager and NetIQ Access Manager from Micro Focus.
Headquartered in Qingdao, China, Haier Group designs, manufactures and sells home appliances and consumer electronics. A forerunner in the industry, Haier has one of the largest market shares in domestic appliances worldwide.
For businesses with large numbers of employees, where people are constantly joining, leaving and moving within the organization, it can often prove difficult to control who has access to which applications.
This was the challenge facing Haier Group, as Xinwen Liu, Project Manager, said: “Managing access is absolutely essential for security. When an employee leaves the company, we need to ensure we cancel their access rights to all our systems.”
