HR vs IAM Identity Variance

HR vs IAM Identity Variance

Play Video

Most enterprises have either HR and/or a Payroll system where identities are created and assigned roles. Unfortunately – this information is NOT always consistently synchronized with the Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems.

Thus an enterprise-wide identity issue exists which includes these problems:

  • Are the users aligned between the HR and the IAM systems?
  • Are the groups aligned between the HR and the IAM systems?
  • Are non-active, deleted or suspended HR users active in the IAM system?

 

These and more questions – come up for various reasons:

  • For identity audits (HIPAA/HITRUST, SOX, CMMC, OSI 27001, etc)
  • For security purposes (implementation of the Principle of Least Privilege (PR.AC-6)
  • For rightsizing licenses between the HR and IAM systems.

YouAttest: Identifies HRS-vs-IAM Identity Variance

Discrepancies between the HR and IAM identities, identified and remedied by YouAttest include:

  • Existence (ghost, missing, active/non-active users) 
  • Membership (group/role entitlements)

 

YouAttest automates the comparison between your HR system and your IAM system (Entra ID, Okta, AD, Jumpcloud) to uncover misaligned identities.
