Product Spotlight
Easy, Affordable Identity Management

www.a10networks.com, 408-325-8668 or 888-210-6363
On a quest to provide affordable identity and access management (IAM) to organizations of all sizes, A10 Networks offers its IDSentrie 1000 appliance as an alternative to traditionally complex and expensive IAM solutions. Although not a full-blown IAM product, IDSentrie includes the most popular and useful elements of such a product in an easily deployed box. A virtual directory service coordinates with directories across heterogeneous networks and lets you provision user accounts, passwords, and attributes. Using comma-separated value (CSV) files from an HR system, IDSentrie can perform batched account setup and deletion. The Web GUI lets you manage accounts from a central location, replicates accounts across data sources such as Active Directory (AD), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Linux, and Kerberos, and helps organizations move toward a one-username, one-password environment.

IDSentrie's unique IDentity Event Manager technology can obtain syslog data from devices such as firewalls, Access Points (APs), routers, and switches. The more than 140 built-in reports include not just a user or host's IP address but also the name of the user or host associated with the event.

A self-help portal lets users access a Web-based kiosk to change or recover a password and synchronizes the new password automatically across all data sources. Users who exceed the allowed number of incorrect logon attempts and are locked out of their accounts can answer a series of challenge questions to unlock the account without Help desk intervention.
