UMRA: Manage User Accounts
What Can UMRA Identity and Access Manager Do for You?
UMRA (User Management Resource Administrator) is a complete User Management System. UMRA simplifies Active Directory Management across all your systems. Based on employee data in the HRM system, UMRA manages user account and authorization processes in Active Directory and adjacent systems. For a new employee UMRA creates an account and mailbox with proper access rights through RBAC on the first day of employment, while also creating accounts automatically in the other systems. Furthermore, UMRA allows the delegation of user account management tasks to others and creates a workflow for this. UMRA also allows user activity monitoring in support of compliance with laws and regulations such as HIPAA and SOX. Since UMRA offers LDAP support based on Open LDAP, it can also handle LDAP directory systems such as Novell eDirectory, Oracle Internet Directory and Apple Open Directory.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Security
Companies need solutions to effectively manage the BYOD devices as well as the user accounts for ensuring the security of their network. UMRA supports a mobile IAM solution to suite your needs.

Is the Management of User Accounts too Complex?
The complexity of user account management is directly proportional to the size of the organization in question. The larger the organization, the more complex the management of user accounts. Systems administrators face multifaceted procedures associated with user account management across numerous systems and applications deployed by multiple users and departments.
The multitude and variety of tasks it takes to manage user accounts makes it almost impossible to carry them out uniformly and securely. In addition, organizational changes are not always consistently reported to the IT department in a timely or accurate fashion, which complicates processes further.
On occasion, new employees have already started their duties prior to a user account being requested. There is no proper overview of the privileges and applications employees need to perform their duties effectively, or the overview is limited in scope. Although additional privileges and access to applications are requested, they are seldom assigned. Also, in some instances, when employees leave the organization, their user accounts are left active for months on end, creating a security risk.

Privilege and Application Management
Implementing changes in Active Directory group memberships for authorization and application distribution purposes rank among the top 10 of the most frequent helpdesk calls. Tools4evers UMRA offers users the ability to record which authorizations and applications must be assigned to each job title or department. Using a sophisticated mechanism, exceptions can be added by the manager and/or requested by employees themselves.
Time and Cost Savings
Time and cost savings can be achieved by automating common actions such as creating, editing and deleting users. The organization will be able to implement changes quickly, while IT staff, who were previously burdened with user management tasks, can be assigned to more business-critical projects.
Increased Employee Productivity
Automation of the Active Directory management of user accounts with account management software ensures that employees can be productive far earlier. Without automated procedures, creating a new user account will take 20 minutes on average. With UMRA, this will only take 2 to 3 minutes. This also applies to editing, updating and removing user accounts. Users will have direct access to the relevant resources and are able to start work immediately.
Improved Service Levels
With UMRA, the helpdesk can perform user account management tasks independently, quickly and without errors. The form interface imposes few demands on the user account administrator. The organization will benefit from directly updated user accounts, while systems administrators can focus on more business-critical issues.
Quicker and More Exhaustive Audits
UMRA automatically logs all activities occurring in the network. This makes it possible to find out who has performed which action, at what time and at which location in the network. This detailed information is available for auditing and reporting purposes. This makes UMRA fully compliant with regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley, ITIL and HIPAA.
Using UMRA, it will no longer be necessary to assign admin rights to staff members charged with user account management tasks. Fewer privileges will be required, while helpdesk members are only allowed to perform the tasks for which UMRA has been configured. Direct access (e.g. through ADUC or NTFS) will no longer be necessary.
