Secure Access to Enterprise and Cloud Applications

Risk-based Authentication

Use Access Manager's® risk-based authentication engine to simplify your user's experience as well as the security of your web-based and federated services. Administrators can set up risk profiles to determine the right level of identity verification as well as the authentication type(s) to be presented to the user. High risk profiles can be setup to invoke an access denial or a step-up authentication with stronger methods or challenges.

Used together with NetIQ Advanced Authentication, Access Manager enables organizations to select the authentication methods that fit the context of access. Using the right authentication type provides high security for sensitive information while simplifying access for authorized users. Learn how to manage to your risk ›

Manage and Control Web Services

Secure your web services and protect your information against authentication attacks and unauthorized access through security tokens. Access Manager uses a standards-based Secure Token Service (STS) that issues and validates security tokens to act as a trusted authority.

Enterprise web services can use STS to enforce appropriate security token policies across web service providers and consumers. Access Manager STS allows the secure identity propagation and token exchange between web services and facilitates secure identity delegation and impersonation.

Customizable Portal

Administrators have the ability to customize user interfaces, such as the optional login page and portal. With minimal effort, you can brand the login page with your own corporate logo and colors.

If you don't already have a centralized place from which users launch their applications, Access Manager's built-in portal provides an easy way for your administrators to configure their users' experience as they access applications and services from their laptops, tablets and smartphones. The portal optimizes the view for each form factor to make navigation quick. Users also have the flexibility to choose favorites as well as the type of view they want to experience.

Mobile Access

For those that want to move their web-based apps out to their mobile users, Access Manager does that for you. It supports the MobileAccess app which keeps them secure and simple to access. Within the app, your users are presented a corporate view of their business applications made to fit the form factor they are using. With a single touch of an icon, the selected application is loaded. Users can also group or favorite the apps that they use most.

For those of you who are delivering services through native mobile apps, Access Manager includes an SDK for iOS, OpenID Connect, or plain OAuth. Whether it's for customer facing or internal use, Access Manager authenticates and enforces the right access controls for these applications. We use open standards so you can avoid vendor lock-in.
