Identity and Access Management (IAM) for Government
Protect your public services from cyber attacks by unauthorized users
Protect your public services from cyber attacks by unauthorized users with Evidian IAM
Access to governmental information is required to be ever more fluid. It should be available to officers and citizens either from a shared workstation or a mobile access point such as a personal tablet. And the information should remain confidential, something which an access audit can easily demonstrate at any time.
Evidian offers identity and access management solutions that are adapted to the specific needs of public services. Solutions that allow you to simplify the attribution and use of access rights so that officers can devote all their attention to the public and to their tasks.
Throughout the world, Evidian ensures that governmental organisations comply with the current national regulations on data protection, while providing an ever more efficient service. Evidian solutions can adapt to the specific requirements of national regulations: officer card with a certificate in Europe, biometrics in Africa and the Middle East, and cards compatible with FIPS 201 in the US.
Evidian solutions are designed to improve the productivity of your administration. So a single authentication will now replace all the passwords of your officers. If they change organisation or role, their access rights will be automatically modified. They can get to work straight away, as their access rights are updated on arrival and deactivated on departure.
We propose you to discover the use case of the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card with Single Sing-On (SSO) and Authentication Management which describes how USA federal agencies can take full advantage of their smartcard infrastructure adopting Evidian Access Management.
Conserve your resources for your tasks
Despite budgets that are tighter than ever, public sector bodies must offer a growing range of new services to citizens, from e-government to simplified procedures covering several administrative departments.
How can you serve citizens effectively if information access requires multiple passwords to be entered? The Evidian Single Sign-On (SSO) reduces the workload of the support team by eliminating lost passwords for applications and guaranteeing access availability.
With Evidian solutions, you can unify and consolidate the digital identities of your users, whether they are officers, service providers or partners, based on existing sources of identity (human resources, service providers, consultants, partners, other administrations, etc.). The administrative burden is considerably reduced.
Rationalise your access procedures
Define and implement attribution processes for access rights to your information systems, whether they are automatic and role-based, or subject to validation through hierarchical approval cycles.
Create or remove rights directly within digital resources, in accordance with the access policy. Implement permanent monitoring, which detects and resolves discrepancies between the policy required and the actual rights present in the applications.
Comply with regulatory confidentiality
All administrations must implement procedures to protect data confidentiality – and demonstrate their effectiveness in audits. With Evidian, you can limit resource access to those who need it. Authentication based on the officer's digital identity allows resource access to be controlled, empowering users.
In addition, you can create an inventory of the actual rights of all your current users to access your information systems. A centralised access audit allows you to see who's accessing what. This also applies to delegated actions and assignations to application accounts. The audit reports therefore facilitate regulatory compliance.
Government Case Studies
USA: Boost PIV compliance with Enterprise Access Management
Discover the use case of the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card with Single Sing-On (SSO) and Authentication Management which describes how USA federal agencies can take full advantage of their smartcard infrastructure adopting Evidian Access Management.
State of Hesse (Germany) - A local government simplifies and secures access
Manfred Pospich, Head of Planning and Procurement. "Multiple login procedures with different user name / password combinations often complicate the everyday work of state employees. With the SSO solution, Hessian state administration staff can use a single authentication procedure to access all computers and services for which they are authorized, without having to sign-on again each time. This also increases IT security."
Navantia - A military shipbuilding company secures its accesses
José María Rubio Martín, Information Systems Security Manager. “We needed to reinforce information system access security. Out of all the solutions available on the market, we chose Evidian’s SSO because it is efficient and easy to integrate into an industrial environment. Moreover, Evidian makes it possible to naturally upgrade to identity management. Therefore, we think that deploying Evidian Enterprise SSO is a first step towards full identity and access management.”
Pays Voironnais - The Agglomeration Community of Pays Voironnais protects the personal data of its citizen
Bruno Garguet-Duport, Director of Information Systems and Telecommunications. "The deployment went very smoothly. Evidian Enterprise SSO is so easy to install that we have set it up ourselves on our ten sites. Users are more than convinced: now, they would hardly accept working without the solution!"
Winchester City Council - City council ensures CoCo compliance and simplifies IT access
Sheila Davidge, Head of IM&T. "Evidian’s SSO solution exceeds the CoCo requirements for password strength, and saves users’ time…It gives us a single, consistent security policy that is easy to apply, with minimal support overhead. We wanted to ensure we were compliant with CoCo ahead of the Government’s original deadline. Evidian’s SSO solution exceeds the CoCo requirements for password strength, and saves users’ time by negating the need to sign in to multiple applications. It also cuts the number of helpdesk calls from users for resets of forgotten passwords. It gives us a single, consistent security policy that’s easy to apply, with minimal support overhead."
DGA - The French department of defense (DGA) ensures 24x7 availability and load balancing for its military applications with SafeKit
Alexandre Barth, Systems administrator. "Our production team implemented the SafeKit solution without any difficulty on 14 Windows and Linux clusters. Our critical activity is thus secure, with high-availability and load balancing functions. The advantages of this product are easy deployment and administration of clusters, on the one hand, and uniformity of the solution in the face of heterogeneous operating systems, on the other hand."
Deploy FranceConnect quickly with Evidian Web Access Manager
From school catering to a request for social housing, local authorities are increasingly offering online services to their constituents. But to access it, they must identify themselves and therefore memorize new passwords, which often constitutes an obstacle and carries new risks, users often choosing the same password for several sites. Proposed primarily to public players, the FranceConnect solution is of particular interest to local authorities, which need verified identification without always having the resources to implement it. Deployable in a few days, an integration module such as the one offered by Evidian increases the interest of FranceConnect for local authorities, which can both simplify and secure access to their services.
