SailPoint ready enterprise are now looking to begin onboarding applications to it in an effort to manage access certification rights. Consultants will be working with Application teams to identify processes necessary to onboard their specific application to SailPoint and then help facilitate this. The “factory” process has already been created for this so essentially the consultants will spend a good on their time getting application team adoption and onboard as many applications as possible with over 3000 applications currently existing in Caterpillar’s enterprise.
Work in a collaborative and dynamic team environment. Day will consist of both individual work and working with application teams. Can also contribute to SailPoint onboarding if able, but primary focus is integration with app owners.
Experience onboarding applications to SailPoint IIQ (use of JAR files, Active Directory groups) – assisting applications with implementation (e.g. definition of entitlements, testing onboarding)
Experience configuring certification campaigns
Good communication skills (will be interacting heavily with application analysts)
Previous development experience within SailPoint desirable but not required – Java, Bean Shell rules, workflows
Access certification group, engage with application owners, what’s failure point when onboarding applications, Standardize process, Onboard to SailPoint
Access certification is the process of validating access rights within systems. This process is mandatory for compliance and security risk management; however, it can be a very daunting process for some organizations with dispersed systems, workforce, and partners. With access certification, organizations and regulations aim to formally validate users within systems and ensure their access rights are appropriate.
Organizations face many multi-faceted challenges when it comes to identity and access management. For some, access to enterprise resources must be managed for many global internal and external parties. For others, the overarching challenge is compliance with an ever-growing number of regulations around data integrity and privacy, user identification, and transaction tracking. And for many, knowing who has access to which resources can be draining, time consuming, expensive, and difficult yet critical and mandatory.
As businesses must be able to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, they must have an Identity and Access Management (IAM) infrastructure and automated processes in place – as much as possible – to ensure that system access is appropriate always while incurring the lowest cost possible. Automated access provisioning and offboarding may reduce the number of violations found during the access recertification process and a certification tool can ensure adequate documentation of access review evidence for audit purposes exists. Automation can make the IAM process efficient and effective which will allow the workforce to focus on the growth of the business without wasting time, resources, and budgets unnecessarily.
To meet their access management goals, companies deploy access certification practices to:
◾Understand who has access to what systems, applications, and data;
◾Identify dormant or inactive as well as orphan accounts;
◾Validate that the assigned access is correct and appropriate;
◾Remove all inappropriate access;
◾Seek formal validation of the final access list (certification); and
◾Document review evidence for audit and compliance purposes.
Excellent communication skills, this person will be interacting with developers to provide code enhancement suggestions, as well as various application owners in the process of on-boarding applications to the SailPoint environment
