Add intelligence to your Identity and Access Management strategy
Identity and Access Management (IAM) services are an essential part of many enterprises, touching almost every area of the business. Think about how long it takes to remove a terminated employee’s access, audit user privileges or create reports on resource access metrics? Employees, clients and partners must have access to certain information, but is there a policy in place which provides regulates this? IAM revolves around the business users – enabling them to work efficiently and effectively in a controlled manner.
