New Access Management for Flemish Authorities (25/02/2013)
A central service platform allows for shared Access Control Management (ACM) across the sites.
As a trusted partner, SecurIT helped the Flemish Government design and deploy the new platform (called ACM3) with important capabilities to fulfill the future vision of the Flemish Authorities. In addition to a flexible architecture to accommodate future changes, other capabilities now include the introduction of new internal and external applications, flexibility in how citizens prove their identities, and the ability to grant access based on the role or persona of the user at a particular point in time.
The new ACM3 platform offers a substantial value to the Flemish Authorities:
- It reduces the time and cost to introduce new applications significantly, a substantial benefit in a rapid changing landscape with several government sectors launching new initiatives to leverage the Internet and reach out to the citizens.
- Sharing one centralized platform for many government institutions allows tremendous savings on capital and operational expenses, contributing to the cost savings all governments are seeking.
- The platform provides 6 Million citizens with seamless access to all authorities services with context-aware digital identities using multiple authentication means, offering a level of freedom to people to choose the appropriate method of identification for each individual in accordance with centrally defined security policies.
ACM3 is also a major step forward for the Flemish Authorities in being prepared for the digital world of tomorrow. It provides seamless interaction between multiple domains, and can easily cope with a fast changing environment for user identification, both within the government’s realm and with upcoming Cloud and Mobile prospects.
