Central IAM solution for a Swiss Major Bank: Assignment of access rights in self-service instead of manual authorization requests

irian develops an IAM system in record time that enables central management of identities, employees and accounts, including access authorizations. Instead of manual authorization requests and the resulting time-consuming processes, access rights are now assigned quite simply in self-service.

Especially in complex organizational structures, efficient management of access permissions is indispensable. irian’s IAM system provides Julius Baer with streamlined access management that combines automation, cost savings and enhanced security, giving the right people the right access rights at the right time in an efficient and user-friendly way. The first launch took place after only 5 months and enabled Julius Baer to seamlessly integrate with in-house systems such as HR and Active Directory.

Regular recertification campaigns allow line managers to easily review, confirm, or revoke access privileges. By implementing self-service functions and automated processes, costly manual processes are replaced, resulting in significant cost savings. In addition, automated processes minimize the risk of errors and ensure periodic recertifications to detect and address potential flaws in access permissions.

The entire “Joiner-Leaver-Mover” process is automated, which means that new employees automatically receive the appropriate access rights when they join, which reduces the administrative workload enormously. In accordance with the “need-to-know” principle, potential risks are also minimized by withdrawing access rights that are no longer required from existing employees when they change roles or departments. Upon leaving the company, all access rights are immediately revoked to eliminate any security risks.
