The newly released version 6 adds risk-based analysis, highlights end users whose entitlements suggest additional scrutiny or review, user interface improvements, and support for a wider range of platforms, databases and web servers.
"With the movement to cloud-based applications, organisations are even more challenged to attain a level of visibility and control over user access and entitlement creep, which impacts their ability to meet compliance requirements," said Tom Crabb, manager of product marketing at NetIQ.
"AGS 6 builds on NetIQ's decades of identity lifecycle management and access governance experience and provides business owners with answers to the age-old question of 'who has access to what' with actionable intelligence required to fully protect corporate data regardless of where it resides and maintain compliance postures on an ongoing basis globally."
NetIQ Access Governance Suite 6.0 costs $64 per user. Free upgrades are available to licensees of versions 4 and 5.0.1.
