Bravura Patterns

Pre-configured business processes and policies, to quickly deliver rich IAM automation using the Bravura Security Fabric.

Standardizing IAM business processes

Bravura Security offers multiple editions of Bravura Patterns -- each of which is an implementation of the Bravura Security Fabric for a specific type of organization and feature set.

The objective of Bravura Security Fabric Patterns is to minimize the time, cost and risk of Identity and access management (IAM) system deployment. Instead of spending months with consultants to document existing processes, adjust them and then implement automation on a "clean slate" system, Bravura Security recommends discarding old, inefficient processes, adopting best practices and implementing a full set of IAM processes in just a few days. Identity Express can reduce the total cost of IAM system deployment by 80% to 90%.

Bravura Patterns help organizations achieve positive results quickly and then prioritizes what product features and integrations, which may not yet be incorporated into the configuration, to deploy next.

Benefits of Bravura Patterns

Replacing legacy IAM processes with Bravura Patterns has the following advantages over custom IAM implementations:

  • Optimized IAM processes: The business processes codified in a particular Bravura Pattern have been optimized for fast service and robust internal controls, improving on the legacy processes in most organizations.
  • Complete functionality: When implementing a custom IAM system, organizations can only automate one or two processes at a time. Most start with onboarding, deactivation or access reviews and only later automate transfers, leaves of absence, name changes, rehire detection, etc. In contrast, Identity Express allows organizations to automate a comprehensive set of identity lifecycle processes up front.
  • Efficient implementation: By adopting a pre-configured set of processes and policies, organizations minimize deployment risk, reduce implementation cost and shorten time to value.

Simplified implementation by discarding old, inefficient processes and adopting best practices instead.


Reduces the total cost and time required for IAM deployment by up to 80%.


Minimize the need to design, optimize and debug custom processes. Simplify version upgrades.
