Good policy makes good security

There's a story in NetworkWorld on how good policy makes for good security. In this case it is a story about Inergy Automotive Systems and how they have used identity management is making security a business enabler.

Inergy is using Quest's ActiveRoles product for part of their overall solution - with other products from vendors like IBM.

We now use Windows Active Directory along with Quest [Software’s] ActiveRoles Server. That helps us use Active Directory as a centralized store of data for phone book, employee contacts and organization charts and things like that, with really granular security delegation.

Customers are beginning to view - and use - Active Directory as a strategic piece within their IT environments even when other vendor's IDM suites or products are also in use.
