Avatier Identity Anywhere Meets NERC Compliance Software Reliability Principles

For top enterprises, compliance initiatives are more than meeting a specific regulation. Compliance management is more than a one-time event. Compliance regulations provide guidelines for organizations to continuously improve through processes, actions and reporting that is repeatable, sustainable and cost-effective.

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) sets the IT security and compliance requirements for North American bulk electric systems. Avatier Identity Anywhere aims to streamline costs and reduce risks all while meeting compliance regulations such as NERC through automation and self-service administration.

To meet NERC’s focuses on measurable performance, risk mitigation strategies, and security, Avatier Identity Management Software (AIMS) offers a comprehensive enterprise identity management, access governance and compliance management.
