Enable Proactive Compliance

BURLINGTON, Ontario, March 20, 2013

BURLINGTON, Ontario, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --N8 Identity, Canada's
leading dedicated identity and access management (IAM) solution provider,
today announced general availability of SAP GRC Enterprise Software
integration with its flagship product Employee Lifecycle Manager^® ^ (ELM™).

SAP is a global market leader in enterprise application software. ELM
integrates seamlessly with SAP GRC access controls to proactively approve,
create, modify or delete SAP access and accounts. In addition, ELM
incorporates the identity information stored within SAP into broader IAM
enterprise processes, including onboarding, change in responsibility and
offboarding. This comprehensive approach to IAM solves the main business
pains of large cap companies: non compliance, business process inefficiency
and high IAM program cost/risk.

N8 Identity has recently deployed this integration to GRC software at a large
retailer with over 135,000 employees. This benchmark integration offers
measurable business benefits, including certification of access, segregation
of duties (SoD) enforcement and consistent compliance controls across both SAP
and non-SAP enterprise systems. These features significantly improve the
security posture of N8 Identity's clients.

Case Study Highlights

  oProactive compliance and security: Proactive controls certify user
    entitlements, prevent inappropriate access combinations, including SoD,
    and ensure consistent compliance controls across both SAP and non-SAP
    applications.
  oWorkforce enablement: New employees are onboarded and receive appropriate
    system accounts and access within one hour of being hired. This is a
    critical advantage for high-turnover industries like retail and call
    centers.
  oAutomated access provisioning: Automated provisioning of LAN identities,
    Active Directory groups, SAP access (including store-specific entitlements
    for over 1,500 locations), and other company memberships for more than
    135,000 employees.
  oStreamlined identity certification: 90 percent of SAP access requests are
    pre-approved through ELM enterprise roles, eliminating more than 100,000
    unnecessary approvals.

"Many of the world's largest and most complex organizations run on SAP," said
Jay O'Donnell, president and CEO of N8 Identity. "Our ability to integrate
with the governance, risk and compliance module of SAP allows companies to
incorporate one of their most significant business applications into their IAM
program. This comprehensive strategy allows IAM programs to span across the
entire organization and take a truly proactive approach to identity
governance."

The proactive compliance approach to IAM created by N8 Identity prevents
inappropriate access from being granted and identity governance violations
from occurring, thereby ensuring continuous compliance with SOX, HIPAA, PIPEDA
and other federal security regulations. Currently, most vendor solutions take
a reactive approach to identity governance by allowing policy violations to
occur and then reporting on access violations after the fact.
