Addressing modern security challenges with One Identity

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) recently reported identity theft was up 55 percent since the beginning of the global pandemic in 2020, with technology, remote work and online socialisation being key drivers of sophisticated and difficult to detect scams.

Increased use of remote and personal devices via multiple networks, outdated infrastructure, and minimal security systems, has put Australia in a vulnerable position for cyberattacks. Malicious cyber activity is increasing in frequency, scale, and complexity costing the Australian economy billions of dollars.

To address our cybersecurity, identity governance and administration challenges, Dicker Data, as leading distributor of Quest Software, has joined forces with One Identity – a Quest Software business that helps organisations establish an identity-centric security strategy. 

Dean Redding, Senior Business Manager at Dicker Data said, “Security is a critical priority for every company, industry-wide. We are extending One Identity’s portfolio of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), Privileged Access Management (PAM) and Active Directory (AD) Account Lifecycle Management to the Australian market. Offering the full power of One Identity’s product suite, partners have unique access to comprehensive security solutions required to meet evolving security requirements and objectives.”

Security starts with identity

The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) revealed the annual economic impact of identity crime exceeds $2 billion, urging the nation to strengthen identity security protections to prevent unauthorised access to online information, data and accounts.

With Dicker Data, partners have access to One Identity’s uniquely broad and integrated portfolio of identity management offerings developed with a cloud-first strategy. These solutions deliver flexible and powerful protection against internal and external threats, while equipping partners with the resources required to build integrated identity-centric security strategies.

As trusted advisors, Dicker Data’s experts work with partners to help improve operations, agility, compliance and deliver a solid Identity and Access Management (IAM) framework and security strategy.

A glance at each solution: 

  • Identity Governance Administration (IGA): Complete, business-driven governance for identity, data and privileges permissions. Govern identities and access for all users for on-prem, hybrid and cloud environments. Partners can meet customer’s audit and compliance initiatives, unify security policies across the entire organisation, and meet attestation and recertification requirements with ease
  • Privileged Access Management (PAM): Enables partners to mitigate customer’s security risks and enable compliance by securing, recording, analysing and governing privileged access. Complete flexibility to provide full credentials when necessary or limit access to Zero Trust and least-privileged operating models
  • Active Directory (AD) Account Lifecycle Management: Equips partners with the tools required to build a strong foundation in Azure AD and/or AD accounts to deploy critical account management, administration and governance capabilities, such as provisioning, group and roles management, password management, and governance.

Adapting to SaaS

The recent surge in remote work has accelerated companies’ adoption of cloud applications and delivery model requiring IT partners to deliver comprehensive IGA and PAM solutions to secure the distributed and remote workforce.

With One Identity Manager On Demand, IGA is driven by business needs, not IT capabilities. Through an automation-optimized architecture, it addresses the key identity and access governance challenges organisations face. By aggregating the identities from a variety of different sources, Identity Manager On Demand delivers the scalability enterprises need to manage their employees and external users — through the entire lifecycle and with all the visibility and control IGA demands.

With One Identity Safeguard On Demand, companies don’t have to sacrifice security or capabilities as they seek to manage and secure privileged accounts and administrator access for human, application or machine identities, cloud-based privileged accounts, and any and all target systems. Offering businesses an efficient and secure cloud-based way to store, record, authenticate, analyze and manage privileged accounts through password and session management, the solution reduces the stress and worry of privileged access. With Safeguard On Demand organisations can secure and enable appropriate access to privileged accounts thus protecting themselves from threats while satisfying security and compliance requirements.

Together, One Identity’s SaaS IGA and PAM solutions offer the full power of Identity Manager and One Identity Safeguard in an easy to deploy and consume model. Based on the One Identity Security Platform and designed with the full IGA and PAM capabilities of its industry-leading solutions, the SaaS offerings allow organisations to implement a Zero Trust model with solutions that are hosted, managed, monitored and operated within the One Identity Cloud.

With One Identity, Dicker Data’s partners can deliver an identity-centric, cloud-first approach to cybersecurity that enables organisations to make Zero Trust and least-privilege security models real.
