Fertilizing Your Homegrown HR System with Quality Identity and Access Management.

By | IAM | No Comments

So, your SMB has a homegrown or non-standard HR system. Its built for your needs and suits you perfectly. What you need now is an Identity and Access Management solution that can integrate with this seamlessly and deliver high-powered performance within your budget.

ILANTUS’ Compact Identity is the solution for you.

Built from the ground-up for SMBs, this awesome all-in-one IAM suite sports feature rich Single Sign-On, extensive Password Management, and simple Access Governance and User Lifecycle Management. Other solutions simply refuse to integrate with your HR system. They are also bloated in features and not suitable for your size of business. You can find all kinds of things in them that you do not need – and that you pay through the nose for. This is not to mention that all this excess slows down implementation and is confusing and overly complex – especially since an SMB’s IT department is usually small.

Compact Identity can integrate with your custom HR system. It is also engineered specifically for your size of business – it has exactly what you think you need (and more – what we know you will need!) and nothing more and nothing less. The cost is a fraction of what you might pay other vendors for solutions that are convoluted and not made with your requirements in mind. The solution can be implemented within a week! Most other solutions take a good few months!

Compact Identity also sports an inbuilt identity store that pulls data from your non-standard HR systems. Other vendors charge extra for this. Because we know that this is an essential feature that integrates an Identity and Access Management system with your architecture, ILANTUS includes this feature for free in your Compact Identity subscription.

This is the only solution of its kind in the industry. Tailored to your segment, agile, and backed by ILANTUS stellar customer service – Compact Identity really is the last word in Identity and Access Management for small and medium businesses.

Cinderella’s Slipper for IAM: ILANTUS’ Compact Identity Fits SMEs like a Glove

Searching High and Low for a Solution that Actually has Your Small or Medium Enterprise in Mind

Like Prince Charming searching for the girl who fits his glass slipper, you have been searching for the solution that fits your SME organization perfectly. You have looked far and wide – at small and large vendors alike – but the CAs and Oktas of the world simply don’t seem to want to fulfil your needs. They create and sell solutions that are generic and try to sell the same solution to everyone. You pay through the nose for features that you most likely will never use.

Extremely Poor ROI

We have learned, through customer feedback and through the grapevine, that customers often pay millions for IAM solutions that never get fully implemented. They are blocked in utilizing the features that they need by features that are added within the flow of the product but are designed for other kinds of companies. An organization may buy a solution for millions of dollars, see a 1 or 2 year implementation time, and find that only 5 applications have been integrated at the end of this period. They also frequently find themselves on the dashboard of these products, being asked to choose options for features they don’t want – and being unable to progress further in using the solution unless they choose one of the options.

Not to mention that building a product that is designed for every possible use case in mind (while, in truth, many essential use cases are ignored and only ‘popular and easy to answer or easy to sell’ use cases are provided for) is a monumentally expensive task that shows in the end in the customer’s cost.

So many organizations (especially SMEs) are forced by most IAM vendors to purchase extremely expensive solutions that a) don’t have some of the features that are required and b) are bloated solutions that are too complex for a typical SME’s needs.

Refreshingly Honest IAM

ILANTUS Compact Identity is the first solution in the IAM industry that has been engineered and priced especially for SMEs. It has everything that an SME typically needs in terms of Single Sign-On, Password Management, User Lifecycle Management and Access Governance, costs a fraction of what other vendors offer, and isn’t overly complex. This is aside from the fact that it takes only a few weeks – not years – to fully implement.

The (Sad) State of the IAM Landscape

A good standard to judge a vendor – particularly in an industry such as IAM that should have a strong ethical foundation– is whether they cater to the existing needs of organizations by securing them as they are. Unfortunately, the IAM industry is full of vendors looking for just another business opportunity. They create solutions that are responses to the trending IT landscape (eg. Public Cloud), without a care for the actual situation of potential customers. They tell you that cloud is the future (it is), and that you must migrate to it to avail their solutions. The biggest example of this behavior is the complete lack of Single Sign-On and Provisioning support in the industry for thick-client apps. All kinds of organizations still rely heavily on thick-client apps such as ERPs (SAP etc.) and other device specific apps (like in manufacturing). It is both too expensive, and sometimes a poor idea in terms of security to migrate. It is sometimes safer to have a local, on-premise server and app installation than to have it on a Public Cloud. The industry, sadly, has chosen to completely ignore this because ‘the cloud is the future’ and they feel that that’s where the real money is.

ILANTUS Compact Identity features patented technology that can Single Sign-On and Provision to thick-clients. It can also be hosted on public cloud, private cloud, or on-premise.

What is clear here is that organizations (especially SMEs) are currently getting the short end of the stick from the IAM industry. The sharks that have taken over the vendor landscape only really care about bottom lines and not about providing proper security, ease of access, and integrating admin security functions and protecting people the best they can from cyber-threats.

ILANTUS’ Call to Truth

Here’s where ILANTUS is different. It is our vision, mission and core belief that everyone deserves excellent IAM solutions that are suited to their pockets and needs. We believe that solutions should help customers – not bleed them. They should protect them at all costs – not cost them to protect themselves. They should enhance user experience through ease of access (which improves security) and give admins an integrated IT security experience by providing things like an Identity Repository that collects information from Enterprise Directories and HR and presents a unified statement. This, we believe, is our responsibility as an IAM company. Just as the military exists to serve as the defense of a nation, IAM providers exist to protect organizations and their customers from cyber-crime.

ILANTUS is committed 100% to this vision, urges other vendors to do the same, and provides solutions such as Compact Identity which does what other solutions do not – provides cost-effective, perfect-fit cybersecurity that is constantly being improved.
