IAM at the employee level is foundational to organization-wide security and usually one of the first IAM elements to be addressed. Employees need to access the applications, systems and data they need while remote without compromising security. As a result, this requires air-tight employee identity management.
Identity and Access Management for B2E
Access management is the automation of employee authentication to appropriated access based on their role within an organization. It provides comprehensive security measures to limit user access to the information within their defined role and makes for ease of access to appropriated applications and systems.
Single Sign-On (SSO)
Single sign-on enables employees to enter one set of credentials to access their web applications across various systems (regardless of platform, technology, or domain) using any device, including desktop, smartphone, and tablet.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
MFA allows employees to add layers of security by requiring more than one authentication form to prove identity. To be granted access, two of the following must be presented: something they know, something they have or something they are.
Web Access Management (WAM)
WAN authorizes employees for web applications to always ensure they have the right access.
Privileged Access Management (PAM)
While IAM tools effectively manage your general system users, admin accounts’ elevated privileges require a more robust approach. Privileged Access Management solutions handle everything related to admin accounts, from access provisioning and de-provisioning, to employee access certification of admin accounts throughout all your systems and creating audit logs of all actions with these accounts.
Any company must maintain unique identities for all their users and service accounts to ensure that the correct people are getting access to the right systems. While Access Management is about authorizing an account’s access to a system or process, Identity Management is about authenticating an account’s identity before determining its associated access.
Identity management takes out the guesswork of managing identities by automating tasks such as verification of identity attributes and assigning them their designated roles within each of your core systems.
Identity & Data Access Governance
Organizational leaders are faced with evolving cyber threats and increasingly stringent regulatory requirements around managing their access. Because of this, security and risk management leaders must ensure that the right employees gain access to the right resources at the right time and for the right reasons.
Identity Governance and Data Access Governance are the essential foundation of an organization’s employee governance strategy and ensure that leaders have the best-in-class tools to govern even the most complex IT environments appropriately.
