Product Release Announcement: NetIQ Identity Governance Software as a Service (SaaS)

We are pleased to announce the release of a SaaS-based version of NetIQ Identity Governance. As a key component of our Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solution, Identity Governance helps organizations gain visibility into who has access to what, drive better access decisions, and demonstrate continuous compliance. This new deployment option offers organizations the added benefits of SaaS with the same rich capabilities as our on-premises version.

NetIQ Identity Governance SaaS includes the following key capabilities:

SaaS deployment option with full Identity Governance capabilities:

  • You’ll benefit from SaaS advantages such as lower upfront costs, scalability as you grow, and faster time to value through simplified configuration, deployment, and upgrades. As an existing customer, you can leverage your current investment and familiarity with NetIQ to move your organization toward a SaaS model, at the pace that works for you.

Support for hybrid environments:

  • Identity Governance includes a secure conduit to communicate from on-premises applications and identity sources (including Active Directory and Identity Manager Identity Vault) to the SaaS environment. You’ll be able to govern access to critical resources wherever they reside - on premises or in the cloud.

Enhancements to ldentity Governance:

  • This release includes multiple minor enhancements to policy management and request and approval, including support for policy import and export and improvements to search and view capabilities. (Note that these same enhancements will also be available in the next release of the on-premises version of Identity Governance.)

Please refer to the Identity Governance (SaaS) documentation page for release notes, a quick start guide, and detailed guides.

If you are interested in learning more about this new SaaS offering and our future plans for Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) as a Service, please reach out to your Micro Focus sales representative or partner.
