New SaaS Service Offers Order for Access

One Identity's new SaaS offering, Starling IARI, analyzes user access and roles to secure enterprise networks.

When it comes to authorized access, you need to know the system that's trying to connect and you need to know and trust the human behind the system. Knowing the human is the first part of what Starling Identity Analytics & Risk Intelligence (IARI), a new SaaS-based service from One Identity, does for the enterprise.

The second part of IARI's function is to match the user with the proper user access rights. Year after year, security professionals list improper user access rights as a significant point of vulnerability. When a user's access rights aren't reviewed and adjusted when they change jobs, shift geographies or even leave the company, it creates a breach opportunity for the employee and anyone who manages to gain access to their credentials.

Starling IARI uses a cloud-based data collector and a large pool of data sources to aggregate all the data available on a users' roles, rights and responsibilities. It will then provide an analysis of those rights to show areas of concern and cases in which the rights are inconsistent with the access rights of peers, with role definitions established by the organization or with organizational policy.

Identity and access are well-trod paths in security. Identity management competitors include giants such as CA, IBM, RSA and Oracle. Players in access rights management include BMC, Okta and One Login.

Starling IARI is available now.
