Starling CertAccess basics
One Identity Starling CertAccess delivered access requests and access certifications in the form of a Software as a Service solution allow Starling CertAccess to augment One Identity Active Roles with approvals, notifications, escalations, and other business processes for your hybrid environment. Use Starling CertAccess to easily satisfy attestation and recertification policy requirements while providing auditors what they need.
Use Starling CertAccess Agent to set up synchronization between a One Identity Active Roles managed Active Directory and Starling CertAccess. Synchronization transfers all the required data for controlling access, such as user accounts, groups, and group memberships.
Users can use Starling CertAccess Web Portal to request memberships in Active Directory groups (access request). Managers and others responsible for compliance can certify the correctness of access requests as well as recertify existing memberships using regular attestation (access certification). All memberships are assigned to specific identities allowing access permissions to be tested to see if they are valid in that combination. This ensures that regulatory requirements are fulfilled. If, during attestation, certain access permissions are identified as being invalid and certification is therefore denied, the affected memberships are automatically deleted. Changes such as authorized access requests or revoked access permissions are immediately provisioned in the connected Active Directory domains and take effect straightaway.
The Starling CertAccess Web Portal provides various reports containing information about synchronized data, available access permissions, or completed attestations. You can use these reports for analyzing and summarizing important information.
The Starling CertAccess Operations Support Web Portal helps you to run your Starling CertAccess instance. For example, you can monitor the process handling, identify failed processes, take measures and re-run the processes, view the synchronization status and synchronization logs.
Starling CertAccess is integrated as a Starling service in One Identity Starling (https://cloud.oneidentity.com). You can subscribe to a trial version of the Starling service, filled with sample data, to help you understand the functionality better before you commit to a paid subscription. The One Identity sales team will support you if you wish to carry out a Proof of Concept trial with your own data.
You can use any browser to access Starling CertAccess if it is supported by One Identity Starling. For more information about this, see the One Identity Starling User Guide.
