STORING IT ELECTRONICALLY
IN TODAY’S DIGITALLY ENABLED WORLD, IDENTITY AND ACCESS MANAGEMENT (IAM) PLAYS A CRITICAL ROLE IN ANY ENTERPRISE SECURITY PLAN, AS IT IS INSEPARABLY LINKED TO THE SECURITY AND PRODUCTIVITY OF COMPANIES. AS MORE AND MORE BUSINESSES STORE THEIR SENSITIVE DATA ELECTRONICALLY, ENSURING THAT DATA REMAINS SECURE IS CRITICAL.
The workforce has also developed gradually, especially from a simple to a more complex type of labor force for organizations. In addition to providing access to employees, organizations now also need to include contractors, vendors, and partners, each with their own set of access requirements and restrictions. Furthermore, data and applications spread across the cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructures are being accessed by a variety of devices including tablets, smartphones, and laptops. Identity and Access Management is a Cyber/Information security discipline that ensures the right people have appropriate access to the organization’s critical systems and resources at the right time.
Consolidating authentication and authorization capabilities on a single centralized platform provides business and IT professionals with a streamlined and consistent method of managing user access during the identity lifecycle within an organization. For example, when users leave a company, a centralized IAM solution gives IT administrators the ability to revoke their access with the confidence that the revocation will take place immediately across all the business-critical systems and resources which are integrated with centralized IAM solution within the company.
EJADA offers comprehensive identity governance consulting, making sure no lingering access stays with the terminated users and hence significantly improving the overall information security posture of the company.
