What is Identity and Access Management, and what does it do?
In simple terms, Identity and Access Management are a set of tools and technologies that allow an enterprise to create, maintain, and use digital identities for their workforce and customers. Identity and Access Management was born from the necessity to reduce recognized complexities surrounding identity in enterprises.
Managing identities across an organization is a complex process that involves many teams and many hours. The end result is inadequate security, audit and compliance and high management costs. When we think of security, we ten to think of risks coming from outside of the company most of the time, however, it is not always the intruders who can cause trouble.
A secure environment starts with proper identity management within the organization. Business demands data delivered fast and reliably; Security demands that data is delivered securely. IT has the duty to ensure data is delivered fast, reliable, and secure. By implementing a proper IAM process, you can satisfy both business demands and security policies.
Advantages of IAM
Increased User Productivity
New users don’t have to wait for accounts to be created manually. When the correct policies are in place, each user is identified and given access to the user groups resources.
Good user experience
IAM allows for automation of issuing and managing multi user accounts without any confusion or frustration.
Unlimited information sharing across application
IAM allows various applications to communicate and exchange information across an enterprise’s network. These include information such as files, company data, contacts, calendars, etc.
Ease of Administrative overhead
