Best User Provisioning/Governance Software

User provisioning/governance software gives a single point of maintenance to manage user access to IT applications. Companies need identity governance programs to maintain organized records of user information such as personal information, account histories, or application credentials. These confidential records can be used by employees and administrators to retain information and regulations. IT managers and administrators utilize the information in these systems to automate tasks such as account creation, editing, or deleting, which can help facilitate employee lifecycle changes like onboarding, promotions, or termination. Human resource workers may utilize the databases as well to aggregate information about employees and monitor access requests. There is significant overlap between user provisioning software and cloud identity and access management. Many products function on a hybrid on­-premise and cloud level, but user provisioning/governance tools may not be able to provide remote access. These products will also often integrate with or provide SSO/federation or password management capabilities.

To qualify as user provisioning/governance software, a product must:

  • Possess infrastructure to store and access identity information
  • Provide administrator tools to create access requirements
  • Automate processes related to identity administration
  • Provide security or authentication features to protect sensitive information
