Why do we need audit?
Automated the collection and analysis of the data you need to answer the most difficult questions you face in the management and security of dozens of critical IT assets, including data, directories, and system.
All organizations, regardless of size, require tools to help them manage and secure the various technology resources that power their businesses. However, no organization has the ability to afford, efficiently operate, or maintain separate point products for every technology they leverage.
What we need are solutions that are flexible enough to bend our unique requirements, while also providing the extensibility to deliver a common set of capabilities across multiple platforms within their IT ecosystem.
Multiple ways to interact with our collected and analyzed data, including report generation and distribution to the appropriate parties in your organization.
Auditing serves a vital function in ensuring all businesses laws, regulations, and compliance are met by all employees, along with the IT department. This, in turn, enhances IT governance since IT management has a strong understanding of the risks, controls, and value of an organization’s technological environment.
Therefore, IT auditing is very useful for the management in securing our information assets and ensuring that our IT systems are operating effectively.

Data is the primary target In virtually every breach scenario and protecting data gets harder every day. While there are many challenges Administrators face in the management and security of their various data repositories, there are some common denominators that ultimately make managing data access so problematic.
Access rights are already massively over provisioned, and when mixed with a high degree of management complexity and a plethora of hidden and unknown risks, it’s no wonder why data stores like file shares and databases are so difficult to control and susceptible to attack. As if security concerns weren’t enough, stringent compliance requirements demand something be done to secure sensitive data of all types. But how do organizations approach a problem so big and complex?

Ping Data Governance
Governing access to customer data is increasingly complex for a global enterprise. Internally, there are security teams, database administrators, API developers and business units that rely on that data and consider themselves the authority on who can do what with it. Externally, you have multiple data protection regulations to comply with, as well as raised expectations of data privacy from customers themselves. Reconciling these forces requires a collaborative policy administration interface where stakeholders can centrally test and enforce any and all policies around data access enterprise wide.
Identity and access management (IAM) is a framework of business processes, policies and technologies that facilitates the management of electronic or digital identities. With an IAM framework in place, information technology (IT) managers can control user access to critical information within their organizations. Identity and access management products offer role-based access control, which lets system administrators regulate access to systems or networks based on the roles of individual users within the enterprise.
In this context, access is the ability of an individual user to perform a specific task, such as view, create or modify a file. Roles are defined according to job competency, authority and responsibility within the enterprise.
Systems used for identity and access management include single sign-on systems, multi-factor authentication and privileged access management (PAM). These technologies also provide the ability to securely store identity and profile data as well as data governance functions to ensure that only data that is necessary and relevant is shared. IAM systems can be deployed on premises, provided by a third-party vendor through a cloud-based subscription model or deployed in a hybrid cloud.
What IAM systems should include Identity access management systems should consist of all the necessary controls and tools to capture and record user login information, manage the enterprise database of user identities and orchestrate the assignment and removal of access privileges. That means that systems used for IAM should provide a centralized directory service with oversight as well as visibility into all aspects of the company user base.
Technologies for identity access and management should simplify the user provisioning and account setup process. These systems should reduce the time it takes to complete these processes with a controlled workflow that decreases errors as well as the potential for abuse while allowing automated account fulfillment. An identity and access management system should also allow administrators to instantly view and change access rights.
These systems also need to balance the speed and automation of their processes with the control that administrators need to monitor and modify access rights. Consequently, to manage access requests, the central directory needs an access rights system that automatically matches employee job titles, business unit identifiers and locations to their relevant privilege levels.
Multiple review levels can be included as workflows to enable the proper checking of individual requests. This simplifies setting up appropriate review processes for higher-level access as well as easing reviews of existing rights to prevent privilege creep, the gradual accumulation of access rights beyond what users need to do their jobs.
IAM systems should be used to provide flexibility to establish groups with specific privileges for specific roles so that access rights based on employee job functions can be uniformly assigned. The system should also provide request and approval processes for modifying privileges because employees with the same title and job location may need customized, or slightly different, access.
PingFederate is an enterprise federation server that enables user authentication and single sign-on. It serves as a global authentication authority that allows employees, customers and partners to securely access all the applications they need from any device. PingFederate easily integrates with applications across the enterprise, third-party authentication sources, diverse user directories and existing IAM systems, all while supporting current and past versions of identity standards like OAuth, OpenID Connect, SAML and WS-Federation. And it can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud, so you can support today’s needs and future-proof your business for tomorrow’s requirements.
PingAccess is a centralized access security solution with a comprehensive policy engine. It provides secure access to applications and APIs down to the URL level, and ensures that only authorized users access the resources they need.
Ping Directory is a high-performance, extensible data store for customer, partner and employee identity data. It helps enterprises build a unified profile from multiple data sources with the ability to manage hundreds of millions of entries at high performance during peak usage. And to protect valuable and highly targeted identity data, PingDirectory includes end-to-end security that doesn’t sacrifice performance.
Ping Intelligence for APIs
PingIntelligence for APIs is an API security solution done right. It provides a unified view of API activity across the entire enterprise for centralized monitoring and reporting. It uses artificial intelligence to learn traffic behaviors to automatically detect and block threats to enhance your organization’s security posture.
PingCentral is a converged operating portal for Ping software, and it allows resource-constrained IAM teams to do more with less. It enables self-service, delegated administration for business users to integrate their own applications and APIs and consume centralized identity services. It also automates promotions across application environment tiers while maintaining configuration, and gives administrators visibility to all clients and connections and an audit trail that lets you see who promoted what and when. PingCentral gives your business the visibility, speed and agility necessary for rapid digital transformation.
