Identity & Access Management
Control Who Has Access To What Across Your Enterprise
The average person regularly uses passwords to 27 systems. Within an organization, they also change roles multiple times while abandoning applications they no longer need. Sometimes they leave and there may be some accounts not disabled. Before long, an organization has lost visibility of the access they are granting, and the ‘principle of least privilege’ is a distant dream.
Identity Management software can go a long way to solving this issue. Integrating single and same sign-on across multiple applications and systems can simplify providing and retiring access when an employee starts, moves roles, or leaves the organization. Just taking care of Identity management will make your IT department’s role easier and will improve your employee’s experience while increasing security.
For organizations with higher security, more granular controls may be appropriate. This is where the Access management and the Identity Governance parts become relevant.
While identity management confirms to applications that an authorized person is logging in, access management, controls what that identity is permitted to do. For example, a sales person, when identified, is permitted to log into the company CRM but are they permitted to access their own customer’s information, or should they be permitted to access every customer’s information? Are they permitted to access a single record at a time, or access the entire database in one go? Minimize Employee Fraud and Protect Your Company’s IP.
