Dell Software extends One Identity solution to manage privileged identities

Dell Software today said its new Dell One Identity solution enables IT to enhance productivity, while governing and controlling unmanaged privileged identities.

By integrating Dell’s solution for privileged management with its identity governance and administration solution, organizations can close security gaps and streamline provisioning and access governance for all users, regardless of their role or level of access needed, said Dell.

Colt Technology Services, an IT services company, has already benefitted from Dell solutions.

Deployment of the new Dell solution enabled Colt, which operates in 22 European countries with a 46,000 km European network, to speed up service and security by unifying its identity experience, streamlining governance, improving performance and lowering operational costs both for its internal requirements and for customers


Colt expects to achieve full return on investment (ROI) within the next 12 months.

Will Markham, security practice lead, Colt Technology Services, said: “As security threats become ever more creative, we needed to implement new levels of protection against data breaches, and also ensure our solution supported our business growth over the longer term.”

Dell One Identity solution mitigates security risks by controlling and governing access to critical organizational data and applications, eliminating shared credentials, and assigning individual accountability to administrator activity.

The company said Dell’s Privileged Governance Solution is a modular, integrated solution that intelligently manages and governs privileged user access to systems by automating the process within a single console.

According to a recent Dell Software security survey, 60 percent of global IT decision leaders surveyed are concerned about internal malicious attacks. 55 percent said setting policy for information risk management is of high importance in preventing security breaches. 68 percent said managing, restricting and provisioning/de-provisioning is of high importance in preventing security breaches.

John Milburn, executive director, Identity and Access Management, Dell Software, said: “Dell offers an identity vision, strategy and portfolio that span administration and governance, without an undue focus on any single platform or software development environment.”
