EmpowerID ensures that a new employee’s access is correct and provisioned from day one. By referencing authoritative systems like Active Directory or HR systems like SAP, EmpowerID ensures that employees can begin their first day with all of the access they need automatically provisioned and ready to use.
As employees change job function or responsibilities their access is automatically adjusted to ensure they can perform their new job without retaining unneeded access. And when an employee leaves the organization, EmpowerID can revoke their access across all systems, shutting down access to all Cloud and on-premise applications in one step.

EmpowerID solves the expensive problem of employees having too many usernames and too many passwords to manage. Frequent resets sap productivity, and some users even avoid using applications when they’ve forgotten the password.
EmpowerID ends the nightmare of excessive logins and complex password management by empowering employees to access all their web applications, mobile applications and even VPNs via a single, Active Directory login. This one login gives them access to all of their apps wherever they reside, whether in the cloud or behind the firewall. And if a user forgets their password, EmpowerID’s self-service password reset function allows them to regain access without assistance from a help desk. All of this adds up to your employees getting more work done, while giving you the best ROI of any IT management system.

EmpowerID brings a shopping cart experience to the access request process. Users can quickly see the applications, groups, roles, folders, SharePoint sites, and resources they currently have access to and shop for additional access—both for themselves and others—all from a single page. Users simply search for the assets or access they need and drop it in their cart. When finished shopping, the user submits their request and the EmpowerID workflow engine takes over. The workflow engine references your organizational hierarchy and rules to determine which items need approval, how many approvals are needed, and who must approve each. Requests are automatically routed for approval and their status is tracked in a business-user friendly interface. All participants are kept informed by email notifications and all requests, decisions and fulfillment actions are recorded and integrated into an access recertification process.

Organizations generally pick their applications with one goal in mind; maximize productivity. In this model, security and administration can be little more than an afterthought, with a multitude of security models and administration interfaces in use at the same time and no way to efficiently manage them all.
EmpowerID addresses this complexity headache and potential audit risk by centralizing administration and audit activities in a user interface that’s accessible from desktop or mobile devices. This allows IT Admins to manage applications, users, and security privileges from a single spot.
Many manual administration tasks can be eliminated entirely by automating the provisioning and de-provisioning of access, based on changes in an organization's HR or AD systems. And for tasks that can't be automated, responsibility can be securely delegated by enabling business users to manage access to applications and approve requests in the EmpowerID IT Shop.
All access assignment changes, whether automated, requested, or simply detected by system monitoring, are subject to periodic audit reviews. The EmpowerID attestation engine automates periodic access reviews of all applications, eliminating inefficient manual reviews. The EmpowerID recertification engine also greatly reduces the time that auditors must spend to determine who has access to applications and why they were granted that access.
