What is NetIQ Identity Governance?

NetIQ Identity Governance is a solution that helps any organization run effective access certification campaigns and implement identity governance controls to meet compliance mandates while proactively mitigating risk. Built to get organizations up and running in hours vs the weeks or months of traditional legacy vendors, NetIQ Identity Governance replaces errorprone, time consuming manual methods that can expose your organization to compliance violations and risk from excessive access.

NetIQ Identity Governance was previously known as NetIQ Access Governance Suite, Novell Access Governance Suite.

Access Review and Risk Evaluation features help keep us Audit-Ready
Pros and Cons
  • "When doing a review you can either make manual or automatic fulfillment to immediately apply the manager's decision to the system, like removing or adding new permissions to the user account."
  • "We need more connectors to cloud applications like AWS."

What is our primary use case?

NetIQ Identity Governance is used for review and control access to main business applications. As the Identity Lifecycle is made by NetIQ Identity Manager with provisioning drivers and workflows, NetIQ Identity Governance will do the access review in order to make sure users and accounts are properly activated and deactivated with the rights permissions and accesses.

How has it helped my organization?

NetIQ Identity Governance helps to prepare audits and to be "audit ready" every time. With the different connectors, you can collect user accounts and permissions from many different applications. By combining Identity Governance with File reporter you can also collect NTFS permissions from Windows servers.

What is most valuable?

The access review feature and risk evaluation are very useful. When doing a review you can either make manual or automatic fulfillment to immediately apply the manager's decision to the system, like removing or adding new permissions to the user account.

What needs improvement?

Some out-of-the-box connectors are still missing. We need more connectors to cloud applications like AWS. The next release will include a new analytic module that may improve monitoring and reporting. Currently, the data governance can be integrated with the help of Micro Focus Filer reporter, but it would be nice to have the date connector integrated with fulfillment as well.

The installation process can be improved but it provides intuitive and customized dashboards.

What is most valuable?

  • Risk Analysis Engine
  • Business-IT Role Mining, Certifications
  • Dynamic Grouping
  • Life Cycle Management
  • Provisioning Integration Modules with IDM solutions
  • Intuitive and customized Dashboards
  • Advanced Analytics

How has it helped my organization?

It automated and completed the user's Life Cycle management (which was manual in many cases), while validation of user's access is being performed for any of his Access Requests. More than that, it helped to build a firm RBAC module with its Role Mining tool and it helped the organization to lower the risk of access to critical applications by non-authorized users and by that it helped push the organization to compliance and readiness for auditing and regulations approval.

What needs improvement?

The installation process can be improved. The Workflow Designer interface can be improved as well.

For how long have I used the solution?

For about a year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Not particularly.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Pretty satisfying.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No previous solution used.

How was the initial setup?

Was a bit complex, the Installation process can be definitely improved and re-designed. There is no installation wizard. Instead, lots of manual third party software installations and configurations.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team who were very high skilled.

What was our ROI?

Calculating ROI for identity-audit-risk management solutions is hard, because you cannot measure in bills what breaches you prevented and what these potential breaches financial damage could be. Anyway I could say that in terms of financial saving, this solution saved a lot of long manual expensive audits right after the very first project stage of getting visibility.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

  • RSA-Aveksa
  • CA-Eurikify

What other advice do I have?

Put 80% of your focus on the business process design (not on the technological side at all!) - and do it way before the project has even begun. Do not forget that it's a business-focused project so start from defining the business demands, then go to a final business design - only after - initiate the the technical project.
