Aveksa Works with HP to Deliver Full Business Identity and User Context with HP Security Intelligence Platform

WALTHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

Aveksa, Inc., the provider of the industry's most comprehensive Business-Driven Identity and Access Management platform, today announced that it has worked with HP to provide full business identity and user context with the HP Security Intelligence platform to enhance threat detection for customers. In addition, Aveksa has received HP ArcSight (News - Alert) Action Connector certification and has joined the HP Enterprise Security Technology Alliances Program.

While Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions provide enterprises with visibility into activity across the IT infrastructure, such as external threats, internal threats and compliance pressures, they can benefit from added identity context of individual IT users.

To address this opportunity, Aveksa provides customers with access to full business context for identities, users and activities, all within the HP ArcSight Security Intelligence platform. By using the full set of identiy information maintained by Aveksa in conjunction with data provided by HP ArcSight IdentityView, enterprises can make better decisions and better respond to today's security threats.

Another benefit of the two companies working together is that customers can leverage real-time activity and threat intelligence for true closed-loop validation and enforcement of enterprise access control processes. By doing so, enterprises can now detect granting or usage of sensitive entitlements, and validate whether they are truly compliant with corporate access request policies and processes.

"In order for SIEM solutions to provide enterprises the best threat detection, it is imperative that they can distinguish between authorized and unauthorized access at a very granular level," said Deepak Taneja, Chief Technology Officer, Aveksa. "By working with HP, our customers benefit from a fully-integrated Identity/SIEM solution that enables a richer detection of threats by incorporating granular identity context, such as user roles, profiles, access rights and Information Security policies."

"Increasingly, enterprises are looking for tightly-integrated solutions to solve their complex IT security challenges while reducing operational complexity and mitigating critical security threats," said Buck Watia, Director of Business Development, Enterprise Security, HP. "HP is working with Aveksa to provide customers with enhanced context for identity and user access, which is crucial in quickly detecting threats and reducing business risk."
