Expertise: Voyaging Through Excellence

Technology is only as good as the individuals who create it.

Identity and Access Management

Single sign-on systems, two-factor authentication, multifactor authentication, and privileged access management are examples of IAM systems. These technologies also provide data governance functionalities to guarantee that only necessary and relevant data is exchanged, as well as the capacity to securely store identify, and profile data.

IAM solutions can be installed on-premises, through a cloud-based subscription model from a third-party vendor, or in a hybrid approach.

Nevertheless, why is it important? 

Access to company resources is under rising regulatory and organizational pressure for business leaders and IT teams. As a result, they can no longer allocate and track user credentials using manual and error-prone processes. IAM automates these processes and allows for extensive access control and auditing of all company assets, whether on-premises or in the cloud.

IAM is perfectly suited to the rigors of the new security landscape, with an ever-growing list of features that includes biometrics, behavior analytics, and AI. IAM’s tight control of resource access in highly distributed and dynamic contexts, for example, corresponds with the industry’s shift away from firewalls and toward zero-trust models, as well as the IoT’s security requirements.

While IT professionals may believe that IAM is only for larger enterprises with larger budgets, the technology is available to businesses of all sizes.
