BMC Software INCONTROL for Security Management Suite Enterprise User Administration (EUA) Products

Published: 17 September 2001

ID: G00100947

Analyst(s): Ant Allan


BMC's INCONTROL suite is built round CONTROL-SA, a proven EUA product. BMC competes with Access360, Systor, Tivoli, and others. Will BMC keep its lead as organizations look for user provisioning solutions? Like other EUA products, INCONTROL is aimed at sizeable organizations that struggle to manage large user populations over increasingly heterogeneous corporate networks. BMC's suite of products allows an organization to more effectively manage such a complex environment. CONTROL-SA provides an organization with a consistent, systematic approach to user and privilege management across all systems. It is complemented by CONTROL-SA/WorkFlow (automated change request processing), CONTROL-SA/PassPort (password reset and synchronization), and CONTROL-SA/Links (security event management).
