Galexia advises on Identity and Access Management strategy in the financial sector - 15 October 2008
Galexia was approached by a large financial institution to advise on the development of an identity management strategy, and provide assistance in evaluating available solutions.
The project involved a detailed analysis of business drivers including an assessment of governance, risk, and compliance issues (GRC). Business requirements were established through extensive stakeholder interviews, and these were elaborated into a comprehensive set of functional and non-functional identity and access management requirements.
Galexia also conducted a rigorous technology evaluation, identifying relevant products and inviting a shortlist of vendors to present their solutions. This was used to create a detailed product assessment based on the client’s specific needs, examining the candidate products across over 80 custom metric points.
Galexia provided the client with a governance structure, a path forward towards implementation, and independent assessment of market features and trends. Galexia’s analysis enabled the project to proceed with confidence, understanding and ownership in their identity management solution.
Galexia has specialised in the architecture of distributed identity solutions, including authentication, authorisation, accounting, auditing, single sign-on, federation, provisioning, synchronisation, public key infrastructure and emerging user-centric (Identity 2.0) approaches. The combined user population of the identity management systems Galexia has designed is in the tens of millions.
