Let’s understand what creates a ground work for intelligent Identity and Access Management
When it comes to creating intelligent system networks, it needs to be in coordination with various aspects of business. Starting with basic automation and computing to allowing modes for keeping Data in Motion, bringing checkpoints to ensure safety, falling in line with trends such as Internet of Things (IoT). A continuous unobstructed interaction amongst users – internal and external, devices – spread across multiple touch-points run on real-time basis.
Adding to the complexity of such systems is embedded electronics, software, hardware and networks connectivity aiming at achieving greater value and service. In keeping with the threats, the Governments have applied Cyber Security Regulations to ensure that businesses, companies and organizations protect their systems and information from cyber-criminals.
IT systems are complex, a robust framework that embeds electronics, software, hardware and networks brings greater value.
There are three branches that pave way for IdM – Collaborate, Automate and Secure.
As businesses become increasingly collaborative and access to enterprise resources is extended to a diverse set of users, organizations face a complex challenge of managing identities, and authorizing and authenticating users to access sensitive enterprise resources. Management of identities become a challenging task as security policies are often inconsistent and circumventing around authentication and authorization policies is often straightforward. Identity and access management (IAM) is the process of managing user-access to enterprise resources over time.
IAM systems manage digital identities of end-users throughout their association with the enterprise and streamlines business processes. This cross-functional process involves creation of digital identities of users, as well as connection of appropriate systems and applications to the created identities.
Implementing identity and access management system will benefit your organization in following ways:
- Improved Business Performance: IAM technology improve business performance by automating authentication, authorization, and single sign-on processes, providing better visibility, transforming management of applications, and standardizing business processes.
- Increased Operational Efficiency: IAM systems drastically improve operational efficiency. Superior capabilities of IAM like Single Sign-on facilitates higher levels of efficiency are achieved by facilitating higher levels of integration and consolidation. Furthermore, increased automation (authentication and authorization) and effectiveness also contributes to increasing operational efficiency.
- Cost Reduction: In addition to driving business growth, IAM systems exceedingly reduce cost. Broadly, we achieve cost-savings by reducing operational, implementation, and maintenance costs. Capabilities like Single sign-on and automation of authentication and authorization mechanisms is what reduces costs.
- Risk Reduction: Avancer’s IAM systems reduce risk in a variety of ways. Assessment and evaluation of risk is the first step in reducing risk and our solution enables you to reduce risk by measuring risk. In addition to assessing risk, our solutions reduce and mitigate risk, and also prevent fraud.
- Regulatory Compliance: Complying with regulations is an aspect your organization can’t disregard. Strict authentication and authorization policies ensure compliance with regulations. Single sign-on capabilities of IAM systems we implement enable you to comply with the relevant regulations. Some of the regulations we help your organization comply with include SOX, HIPAA, and GLBA among others. In addition, our systems allow organizations to effectively enforce security policies.
The advantages listed above gives an overview of Identity and Access Management Technology capabilities and competencies of Avancer in the niche technology.
