Too many users, too many applications, too many logins, too much risk? Automate IAM

For many organisations, trusted access is one of 2020’s biggest challenges. Ensuring that the right people have the right access to the right resources is becoming increasingly difficult, especially as companies grow and move services to the cloud.

Compromised user credentials often serve as an entry point into an organisation’s network and its information assets. As such, identity access management has now become a frequent component of our customers security improvement plans to protect both internal (IAM) and customer (CIAM) systems and data.

Modern IAM tools such as OKTA, allow businesses to automate IT tasks relating to the Joiner, Mover, Leaver (JML) process. By fully integrating with applications used across the company, HR can drive identity management and automate the provision and deprovisioning of user accounts. Using an IAM tool to automate this has many benefits, but the headlines are:

  • HR control employee identity and ensure the correct information/privileges for each user in the business is up to date.
  • IT reduce the operational overhead associated with assigning and revoking individual user accounts to a growing number of applications.
  • Security have peace of mind users are not over permissioned to applications, that authentication to systems is simple but strong (with SSO and MFA) and that leavers are revoked access to all systems, automatically.
  • Procurement can ensure applications are licensed accurately based on user need, ensuring only what is required is purchased.
