Enterprise Security / Compliance

Whether you're a business executive looking for better ways to manage risk, a finance manager tasked with regulatory compliance, or an IT director managing multiple Governance, Risk, and Compliance project requests, KPMGS can help you build a robust platform to improve detection and mitigate risk, implement user management and access control solutions that all are integrated across your enterprise and the cloud environment.

Best-in-Class. Application-Centric. Hot-Pluggable.
KPMGS Enterprise Security solutions enable customers to meet compliance efficiently, secure their critical applications and sensitive data, and lower operational costs. Using the most complete and best-in-class suite of IdM solutions, enterprises can manage the end-to-end lifecycle of user identities across all enterprise resources both within and beyond the firewall.

Agile Application Security
KPMGS knows how to deliver the foundation for Service-Oriented Security. We leverage key components such as the Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS), which offers application developers the industry's first declarative security framework. A key pillar of Oracle's Application-Centric approach, developers can now seamlessly weave security into their applications enabling rapid time-to-market and increased business agility.

Realize Significant cost savings and Enhanced Security – KPMGS delivers cost effective Enterprise Security Frameworks by integrating fine grained entitlement management capabilities, automating provisioning of user accounts, dramatically reducing help desk calls, streamlining compliance audit and reporting, consolidating identity silos, rapid integration with enterprise applications and internal as well as federated access control.

What has made KPMGS so successful in the past is our focus on applying “Common IT Security Practices” covering the broad spectrum of policy, program management, risk management, lifecycle planning, personnel/user issues, preparing for contingencies and disasters, incident handling, awareness and training, security considerations for computer support and operations, physical and environmental security, identification and authentication, logical access control, audit trails, and cryptography.

We have seen tremendous value in getting agreement among cross-functional IT, human resources (HR), security, and other key stakeholders of identity in the organization. Therefore, we highly recommend to start out the project with an initial discovery process that looks at a complete Enterprise Security Framework that address the following areas:

  • “User Management”: How should an organization identify internal and external users and manage the lifecycle relationship between organizations and users?
  • “User Authentication”: What strategies, technologies, and mechanisms should organizations use to authenticate users and provide appropriate protection to resources in a cost-effective, manageable manner?
  • “User Provisioning”: How should enterprises automate the mapping of identities to accounts, credentials, and access rights?
  • “User Authorization”: How should an organization manage and control access to applications and online information resources?
  • “Roles”: How and to what extent should enterprises use roles in IdM, applications, and other systems?
  • “Federated IdM”: How should organizations exchange identity information across domains to support real-time sessions or transactions?
  • “Directory Tiers, Instances, and Roles”: How can organizations use a tiered directory architecture to resolve structural, political, and functional differences that accompany general-purpose directory deployments?
  • “Directory Access, Management, and Security”: How should organizations manage and secure their directory services while providing trouble-free access to authorized applications, users, and administrators?
  • “Directory Content, Structure, and Distribution”: How should organizations organize, store, and reference information in a general-purpose directory system?
  • “Directory Integration”: How can an organization manage and share useful, high-quality data in multiple directory services, repositories, and other sources?
  • “Public Key Infrastructure”: How should an organization plan and deploy tiered public key infrastructure (PKI) systems?

KPMGS Vision - End to End Solutions

The cross-functional review of key stakeholders and required technologies will give us the basis for engaging in the requested project based on the outlined high level implementation plan using the KPMGS methodology.

Whenever possible, we propose a solution that accomplishes its objectives with minimal customization. As proposed here, we are not going to modify any existing file (form, workflow, rules etc.), we will rather create separate files by re-using existing code as much as possible and configure our new files to execute as and when required. It will make our life easy with any kind of future product upgrades and modifications. The proposed solution breaks up the project into small modules/code which will be more generic, so that it can be reused easily and each module will be independent of the other, so that any future modification to a particular module will impact others very little if at all.
