Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 delivers self-service identity management for users, automates lifecycle management across heterogeneous platforms for administrators, and provides a rich policy framework for enforcing corporate security policies.
Common identity is an important tool to ensure users have appropriate access to corporate information regardless of where it is located—in your datacenter or in the cloud. Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 R2 helps you resolve these issues by providing self-service identity management for your users, automated lifecycle management across heterogeneous platforms for your administrators, and a rich policy framework for enforcing corporate security policies and detailed audit capabilities.
You can empower users to self-remediate identity issues, including group membership, smart card, and password reset functions with an easy-to-use interface, resulting in increased productivity and end-user satisfaction.
Simplify identity lifecycle management through automated workflows, business rules and easy integration with heterogeneous platforms across the datacenter and cloud. Identity and group provisioning can be automated based on business policy and implemented via workflow-driven provisioning through a single
interface, including the ability to extend FIM to support new scenarios through the Visual Studio and .NET development environments.
Discover and map permissions across multiple systems to individual, assignable roles, leveraging role mining tools to discover the various permission sets for users across the enterprise to be later modeled and applied centrally. IT and auditors with a single view of individual users and resources can increase visibility into compliance and the security state of systems across their organization along with in-depth auditing and reporting.
