Hewlett-Packard has added an identity management product to its OpenView line of management tools, using technology that was acquired when it bought TruLogica in March.

The OpenView Select Identity software automates a wide range of identity and end-user access-control tasks, according to HP. It will be integrated with OpenView Select Access, said Select Access product manager Andrew Flint.

Select Identity enables IT managers to centrally update an end user's permission to use technology resources, according to HP.

Select Access, on the other hand, can be used to provide end users with single sign-on capabilities and access to federations of related websites, among other functions.

The University of Colorado bought Select Access in February and plans to complete a rollout of the software in October, said Jon Giltner, director of IT analysis, architecture and security at the university.

Giltner said Select Access offers clear benefits for 200 end-user departments at the school, but Select Identity would be a lower priority because it would only affect how efficiently the IT staff operates.
