The Aquera SCIM Gateway Platform is a cloud-based service that provides out-of-the-box connectivity via connectors-as-a-service between your identity access, governance, and privileged identity management platforms and all your applications, databases, directories, devices, and B2B portals, and rapidly adds new connectors on-demand. The platform features multi-purpose gateway services and out-of-the-box connectors for user provisioning/deprovisioning, HR application user onboarding/mastering, delta account aggregation, file operations and compliance automation, password synchronization, and privileged account password validation and rotation. The Aquera platform detects account changes across applications and to maximize performance sends only those changes to identity governance platforms for aggregation processing. For applications without API support, Aquera uses robotic automation of the applications’ administrative consoles, which provides connectivity to the full range of applications required.

For organizations that have chosen to start with file extracts for the identity governance certifications, the platform offloads work from the central identity team to application owners to load their own files and compliance artifacts into the platform. The platform pre-validates the files, ensures all compliance artifacts are collected, and reminds app owners of deadlines. Additionally, the platform normalizes the file data imported into the identity governance platform, which allows for a seamless migration to connectors without changing the identity governance platform configuration

To satisfy your security needs, the platform regularly undergoes SOC 2 type 2 audits. The Aquera platform’s delta aggregation capability speeds up the account aggregation time by delivering only the incremental account changes to identity governance platforms, when using Aquera connectors, existing files, or existing JDBC connectors.

Key features include:

  • Out-of-the-box connectors-as-a-service provided, maintained, and supported by Aquera
