Aveksa, HP collaborate to provide business identity and user context application

The development would allow enterprises to detect granting or use of sensitive entitlements.

By CBR Staff Writer

Identity and Access Management platform provider, Aveksa, has collaborated with HP to offer business identity and user context.

Aveska will use HP’s Security Intelligence platform in a bid to improve customers’ threat detection capabilities.

The collaboration is aimed at allowing customers leverage real-time activity and threat intelligence for closed-loop validation and implementation of enterprise access control processes.

HP Enterprise Security Business Development director Buck Watia said that enterprises are increasingly looking for tightly-integrated solutions to solve their complex IT security challenges while reducing operational complexity and critical security threats.

"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," Watia said.

Enterprises will benefit from added identity context of individual IT users, in addition to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions that offer visibility into activity across the IT infrastructure, such as external threats, internal threats and compliance pressures.

Aveksa chief technology officer Deepak Taneja said that in order for SIEM solutions to provide enterprises with the best threat detection, it is imperative they can distinguish between authorised and unauthorized access at a very granular level.
