Security software vendor Thor Technologies Inc has introduced a new version of its Xellerate provisioning software designed to help companies stay on the right side of new user access and data privacy regulations.
Version 7.2 of the New York-based company’s Xellerate user provisioning system continues its focus on managing identities and provisioning user access rights to applications, and adds enhanced capabilities for regulations such as Gramm-Leach-Bliley, Sarbanes-Oxley, and HIPAA.
Enhancements have been made to Xellerate’s Reconciliation Engine that enables it to detect unauthorized user accounts on protected systems and shut them down. The Reconciliation Engine is also able to detect unauthorized changes to authorized user-accounts, such as an increase in mailbox size.
The technology also provides the capability to perform bi-directional synchronization with other LDAP directories and identity stores, so that additions and modifications to identity information in third-party directories is automatically applied to Xellerate’s repository, and vice versa.
For compliance with regulations that require audits and reports proving that policies have been followed, the new version of Xellerate also includes enhancements to its approvals process that can automatically create, modify, and terminate user access based on business processes, as well as a log of all activities and events for future reference.
