Auditing Capabilities Are Core to the Business Case
According to Gartner’s 2017 Critical Capabilities report, auditing is a vital part of the business case in why identity management and access governance makes good sense. Auditing provides assurance to auditors and other stakeholders that business rules and controls are being enforced and enables organizations to demonstrate that they have control over their environment.
Identity management and access governance is a cornerstone to good cybersecurity and auditing a vital part of that business case. Auditing evaluates business rules and controls against the current state of identities and access rights, alerting control owners of exceptions (such as invalid identity states or the creation of rogue accounts in managed system) and supports a timely and orderly remediation.

Provide assurance and transparency
Auditing supports the evaluation of business rules and controls that are enforceable through an identity and governance access product. It can be used to monitor the integrity of data maintained and monitor the performance of processes controlled by an identity and governance access product. Auditing provides assurance to auditors and other stakeholders that business rules and controls are being enforced and enables organizations to demonstrate that they have control over their environment. The intention is to improve transparency through the operation of controls to make it easier for auditors and other stakeholders to rely on the identity and assess governance system to enforce controls.
