Our Offerings Deliver Value, Manage Risk
While most businesses are aware they need to automate identity and access risk management, many are not sure where to begin. The Courion Strategic Review and the Courion Health Check are two great places to start.
We deliver value — increasing your operational efficiency by significantly reducing the time, effeort and expense of managing your access risk. Our offerings provide realistic options to add value to your organization with new Courion solutions, or enhancements to your existing ones.
The Courion Strategic Review
Unless you're an ostrich, you know that data breaches have continued to skyrocket — in healthcare, finance,education, energy, retail and the public sector. And in the back of your mind, you know it could easily happen to your organization.
It's critical to ensure that users — employees, contractors, temporary workers, consultants and partners — only have access to the information they need to perform their business functions. Organizations also need the ability to immediately change or remove access when circumstances warrant, as in the case of merger & acquisition, reorganization or termination.
The Strategic Review is a comprehensive approach that helps organizations identify the best ways to get the most from their Courion solutions, and reduce the risks of inappropriate access to sensitive and confidential information, intellectual property and mission critical applications and systems.
How it Works
The Strategic Review comprises a half-day meeting with a Courion executive, your executive sponsor and project team. Discussions center on the current state of your business, future business goals and how we help you get the most value from your current Courion solutions. We discuss prospective enhancements to keep your IAM strategy an integral part of your security infrastructure and business processes.
The Strategic Review includes:
- Analysis of the current state of your business, and of your Courion solutions
- Discussion about the business benefits of automating manual processes
- Recommendations for your desired future state, based on our extensive experience, and customer and industry trends
- A customized road map for achieving that future state, focusing on areas of highest business value
- An executive-level business case presentation
The Courion Health Check
While the Strategic Review focuses on the business aspects of your organization, the Health Check is an in-depth review of the technical areas – delivering a customized plan on how you can lower costs and minimize overhead associated with managing access risk throughout your organization.
The Health Check:
- Helps virtualize your physical servers, saving you capital expenditures, reducing labor and overhead expenses
- Gives you the latest versions of your Courion applications to ensure you are fully up-to-date
- Implements new features and functionality of your existing Courion solution, minimizing customization
- Takes just hours with your Courion Administrator working with a dedicated Courion Sr. Professional Services Engineer
How it Works
A dedicated Courion Professional Services Engineer works with your Courion Administrator to review your Courion implementation; inventories your workflows, connectors, and data mapping; assesses the data; and presents you with a customized report that provides recommendations for areas of expansion.
Health Check recommendations generally include:
- A solution roadmap
- Added workflows
- Target expansion
- Additional automation
The Health Check can be performed alone, or in conjunction with the Strategic Services Review giving your organization the benefit of a well-rounded examination of your Courion solutions, and future enhancements from both a business and technical standpoint.
