Whitepaper: Identity and Access Management Without Compromise
Organisations of all sizes are challenged to effectively provide secure access to a rapidly growing mosaic of cloud, on-premise and mobile applications. Plus individually provisioned applications create a management burden with multiple negative operational effects:
- Time and money wasted by manual on-and off-boarding, and lost passwords.
- Security risk from weak, easy-to-remember passwords, as well as from system access by former employees whose credentials are not promptly revoked.
- Lack of visibility into who accesses which application, and from where.
As a result, organisations and users encounter a range of obstacles that prevent them from securely operating at speed.
And because today’s IT footprint is large and porous, companies face headline-making data breaches when applications introduce security vulnerabilities into the enterprise environment.
Furthermore, organisations with on-premise portfolios encounter additional complexity due to their hybrid cloud/on-premise software environments.
The good news is that a modern version of cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) has emerged to provide easy yet secure access to the thousands of applications people use to do their jobs every day.
