To avoid potential security risks, companies can adopt IAM- a framework that utilizes technologies to control user access to vital information within their organizations.

FREMONT, CA: As a business scales, it adapts with applications to streamline its operations. This leads to a rise in users accessing several applications and platforms from devices. An employee may have one email password, and now IT handles dozens of credentials for SaaS platforms on many devices. Since one security slip-up can damage a business considerably, identity access management solutions offer IT the potential to manage access control and identity. This frees them from time-consuming tasks and enables them to focus on more daunting, fulfilling projects to fuel company growth. Here is why identity and access management is important for companies.

Improved Security

IAM solutions aid in identifying and reduce security risks. Enterprises can use IAM to identify policy violations or remove inappropriate access privileges without searching through several distributed systems. Enterprises can also leverage IAM to ensure that security measures are in place to meet the current regulatory and audit requirements.

Information Sharing

IAM offers a common platform for access and identity management information. Firms can apply the same security policies across all the operating platforms and devices used by the organization. IAM frameworks can help enforce user authentication, privileges, and validation and remediate privilege creep.

Ease of Use

IAM simplifies sign-up, sign-in, and user management operations for application owners, end-users, and system administrators. IAM makes it seamless to offer and manage access, and this promotes user satisfaction. Identity and access management gives users access based on the roles and permissions allotted to them. But IAM also enables bespoke access based on a user’s history, the risks they present, and the context in which they are requesting the access.

Productivity Gains

IAM mitigates the complexities of access by organizing all access policies into a unified system. It allows a centralized, consistent, and scalable method of managing users and granting permissions simpler, and adopting new applications quicker. Instead of continually resetting passwords and offering access to every application, IT admins can use the automated provisioning and lifecycle management tools that come with IAM solutions.
