So I'm here to talk to you today about privileged account governance, which is a solution that we just announced. Privileged account governance is really our effort at marrying traditional identity management with privileged account management. One of the things that we've seen our customers struggling with, and the industry moving towards, is how to better govern and wrap compliance around identities within the organization.
And one of the key missing things that we've seen with our customers is this lack of a tie-in between the privileged accounts in their system, the people who have root access, the people who might have access to an SAP instance or some other high value business service, and their normal identities. And the inability for auditors and for internal compliance people to understand who the riskiest people are in an organization.
So what we've basically built is a software solution that integrates our privileged account management, our hardware solutions with Dell One Identity Manager, and to be able to provide the attributes and the level of information about those privileged accounts, those privileged identity within the identity management product. Some of the key benefits that our customers achieve from this integration of the two products together, or what we are calling the Privileged Account Governance solution, is the better ability to do things like separation of duty, to do compliance checking, to integrate workflows and compliance checks into their identity management capabilities within the company.
One of the key things we want to be able to ensure is that, across all identities whether they're just regular identities, regular users within a corporation, but also the privileged users that we're able to apply the same set of compliance standards across those two different sets of people. So that's things like the separation of duties, the ability to send workflows out to ensure that you have the right people in the right different groups for access to privileged accounts. And to ensure that on a regular basis that you're updating who has that access and why they have that need for that particular access.
So one of the main benefits we see our customers able to achieve from this level of integration is to be able to not only just provide additional capabilities, additional benefits around wrapping separation of duties and the compliance checks together across these two products, but also to help build the risk index of individuals within a corporation. Because it's become really apparently that companies need to build the risk profile for each individual user in their company.
You want to be able to understand what risk Jackson is to the company whether he has privileged accounts, whether he has some kind of administrative control, or whether he's just a regular user. It's through that risk index that we can enable the company to be able to set rules or policies like, if Jackson wants to get access from the outside to a resource on the inside, and he happens to be risky individual, or he has a privileged account, perhaps we want to require that he has two-factor authentication, or some kind of out-of-band authentication.
So it's really about merging the capabilities of the separation of duties, all of the workflow and the compliance check. But in addition, to help really roundup that risk profile of an individual within the organization. And if you'd like to learn more about this solution, please visit us at Software.Dell.com/PAG.
