Identity Location Management
Using an innovative identity and location-to-event binding technology, AccelOps automatically associates IP addresses
to machine names, MAC addresses, switch VLAN IDs, logged-on users and directory objects.
Now complete who and where details are maintained as action records, irrespective of the use of shared credentials,
including the network the user has connected to and by what method.
Know the User and Location – Not Just their IP Address
Using identity and location-to-event binding technology, AccelOps intelligently associates IP addresses to machine names, MAC addresses, switch VLAN IDs,
logged on user name, and directory identity. It automatically identifies a user’s location in terms of nearest WLAN AP, controller, VPN gateway, Layer 2 switch
port, and associates primary logins to secondary logins in order to identify the real user behind administrative accounts. With this information, any IP address
can be automatically associated to a specific user, on a specific server/laptop, and connected to the network via a specific access method: AAA, VPN or switch.
By binding user identity and location to events, full who and where details are maintained as an action record irrespective of the use of shared credentials.
Now investigating operational issues, change anomalies, security breaches and violations, and reporting on internal user actions are no longer obstacles.
These actionable identity and location details are presented, used and always available in dashboards, topology maps, incidents, enterprise search, rules and reports.
As changes in directory objects, new network devices and systems, or known or unknown users access your infrastructure, all the pertinent location and identity information
is current and maintained for real-time and historic analysis.
AccelOps keeps track of the MAC to VLAN ID mapping in switches and routers, so that it can map an IP address to a specific machine name,
MAC/VLAN ID, and logged on user.
In this way, AccelOps provides the server (or host) connected to each port along with the corresponding IP address, user (VPN, Domain or AAA), location
(switch or wireless controller), and the last and first seen time information.
Layer 2 Topology with Location
Now you can visualize your layer 2 topology for each switch or router along with VLAN ID and server information directly in the AccelOps Topology View.
Click on the ‘+’ icon on any switch or router in the Topology view, and the latest layer 2 topology information for that device will be shown immediately.
The dynamic user identity and location mapping also helps to improve incident response time, investigations, planning, and operational changes.
The identity and location information along with the historic event details can be exported into PDF or CSV formats and emailed to the applicable administrator.
