Identity Access Management (IAM) technologies can be used to initiate, record, and manage user identities and their access permissions to provide oversight and visibility into all aspects of the company user base.
Businesses and organizations are under increased regulatory scrutiny when it comes to protecting access to critical information. Identity Access Management (IAM) technologies can be used to initiate, record, and manage user identities and their access permissions to provide oversight and visibility into all aspects of the company user base. It is important for IT leaders to have a comprehensive system to control user access by identifying users and their roles, updating as needed, assigning levels of access, and protecting sensitive data within the system with the appropriate security measures. These tightly controlled and automated systems align with the increasing security requirement.
