AXA UK Plc, a provider of wealth management services to the U.K. consumer and corporate sectors, will use Oracle Identity and Access Management technology to support customer and business partner access control across the company's U.K. websites, according to Oracle Corp. The company also says that in delivering a common platform in this area, AXA UK Plc will be able to enforce an even higher level of security and process diligence, while reducing costs and centralizing the administration of associated information security services.

Oracle Identity and Access Management is designed to provide controls for access to company Web assets, including identity federation capability.

"AXA UK has always invested heavily in security-focused technologies to ensure that our customers' information assets are protected to the best of our ability," says Sue Kettley, head of U.K. security at AXA UK Plc. “The Oracle Identity and Access Management portfolio offers a wide range of incremental security technologies with which to extend our approach.”

Oracle says AXA UK Plc was already a user of Oracle Access Manager to securely manage business partner interaction in the life and health businesses, and will begin to deliver consumer-focused access control services, starting with AXA Distribution Services in 2010.

"With the ever-increasing focus of privacy-concerned regulators, UK organizations must continue to improve their identity-related processes to protect their most valuable information assets," says Des Powley, technology director security, Oracle UK, Ireland and Israel.
