Identity and access management (IAM) is a cybersecurity framework of policies and technologies for ensuring only the right people can access the appropriate data and resources, at the right times and for the right reasons. Combined with identity governance, IAM is an essential part of your IT toolkit to help you meet increasingly rigorous compliance requirements.
The role of IAM in the enterprise.
An IAM strategy has never been more important to the success of an organization than it is today.
The typical business user has dozens (or even hundreds) of applications they must access in order to do their jobs. These applications span cloud, mobile and on-premise solutions, and all can hold confidential, sensitive and regulated information.
With this increase of applications, it’s no longer enough to simply set up an identity server and connect users. Many enterprises have turned to identity management to increase productivity and securely enable access to applications and systems. When combined with an IAM solution, a unified governance framework can automate costly IT processes, while also addressing security and compliance requirements, like General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Grow your business with identity and access management.
In today’s business world, global employees need 24/7 access to be productive. However, manual IT processes can’t keep up with access demands. Identity management helps organizations move forward — quickly, securely and confidently.
While other security tools focus solely on anti-malware, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention software, identity management provides powerful security by controlling who has access to resources.
What are identity best practices?
An effective identity program must answer three important questions: who has access to what resources and data, who actually should have access and how are those access rights enforced.
Identity management helps organizations not only improve their security and regulatory compliance, it also fuels employee productivity and business agility.
