IAM systems not only identify, authenticate and authorise the users who will be accessing IT resources, but also the hardware and applications users need to access, through use of policies and technology.
In essence, Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables the right users to access the right resources for the right reasons at the right time.
Making sure that employees, partners, and customers have access to the data they require and only the data they require is essential within all businesses. The main objective of an IAM system is to have one digital identity per user, with this identity maintained, modified and monitored until the user no longer needs or is authorised to have access.
Our eBook is a starter guide for those looking to understand what Identity and Access Management is, and how IAM systems can help protect businesses. We cover terms and trends along with a summary of how IAM systems work, and how to successfully implement an IAM strategy and system.
