BAAR-IGA Deployment types:

Capabilities

Identity Lifecycle Management

This section automates the onboarding (creation of ADID, email ID, assignment of RSA token, VDI creation), offboarding, amendment, transfers, reactivation. When the source data (e.g. HRMS is changed, BAAR-IGA will action the change)

User Access Review

At regular intervals, access review campaigns are set up so a certifier can ensure the right people have access. Access reviews can be done for system access or policies (e.g., who has access to the internet from their work laptop). These can be scheduled or anomaly-driven.

Policies Management

These policies play a critical role in enforcing security, compliance, and access control within an organization’s identity management framework. Examples include enforcing a password change at regular intervals and monitoring timebound internet access from work laptops.

Self Serve Portal​

User-friendly web interface that enables individuals to manage their own identity tasks, such as password resets, access requests, and profile updates. Empower users, enhance efficiency, and reduce administrative workloads while ensuring secure and compliant access management.

BAAR Universal Directory

BAAR universal directory, is a centralized database or repository that stores and manages user identities, attributes, and access privileges across various systems and applications within an organization. It provides a unified view of user information.

Single Sign On & 2FA

BAAR-IGA offers single sign-on as well as multi-factor authentication and adaptive multi-factor authentication for all new age as well as legacy applications. BAAR-IGA also has its own authenticator app that ensures secure access using biometrics.

Privileged Access Management

BAAR secures, controls, and monitors access to privileged accounts and sensitive. It helps prevent unauthorized access, enforce security policies, and ensure compliance with regulations by managing and auditing privileged user activities.

Case Study

BAAR-IGA monitors user entitlements in systems and ensures separation of duties exists. SoD monitoring can be done inter system or intra system. BAAR-IGA looks at the access control lists for each system and compares them with the SoD rule matrix.

Privileged Access Management:  BAAR enhances security by tightly controlling and monitoring access to privileged accounts and sensitive information. It aims to block unauthorized access, enforce security policies, and maintain regulatory compliance through the management and auditing of privileged user actions.

Overview:

A leading financial institution, recognized the need to strengthen its identity governance and administration processes to mitigate security risks and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. To address these challenges, the bank decided to implement BAAR-IGA.

Challenge

Identity Lifecycle Management: Automated provisioning, de-provisioning, and role-based access control (RBAC) to streamline user onboarding and offboarding processes.

Access Certification: Regular review and certification of user access rights to ensure compliance with least privilege principles and regulatory requirements.

Privileged Access Management (PAM): Centralized management and monitoring of privileged accounts and sessions to mitigate insider threats and prevent unauthorized access.

Audit and Reporting: Comprehensive audit trails, reports, and dashboards to track user activities, access changes, and compliance status for regulatory audits.

Integration with IT Systems: Seamless integration with existing IT systems, including core banking applications, Active Directory, and HR systems, to synchronize identity data and access controls.
