Identity and Access Management (IAM) is the management of individuals and their access within an IT infrastructure. It makes sure the right individuals have access to the right (IT) resources at the right time.

These resources can include systems, applications, files and networks. An IAM solution is crucial these days because they make things more secure, efficient and easier. Discover all the different solutions and their advantages below.

All the IAM solutions

IAM is a broad concept that includes many identity management and access management solutions.

Identity Management

Identity management (IDM) provides a central point to manage each user account, the identity, their access to systems and the appropriate rights on these systems and data. The identity management system defines the rights and rules for obtaining access to systems and data. More on IDM

Access Management

Access management (AM) will enforce the rules set forth by, ideally, the identity management and identity governance systems. More on AM

Identity Governance & Administration

Identity governance & Administration (IGA) provides tools for managing roles. Where identity management focuses on the lifecycle of a user, roles (technical to business) also have a lifecycle to manage. The roles associated with a person evolve over time and it is important to review assigned roles on a regular basis. Left unmanaged, accounts continue to gather entitlements which leads to accounts with access to multiple resources which they might no longer need (privilege creep). More on IGA

Privileged Account Management

Privileged Account Management (PAM) is a solution that helps secure, control, manage and monitor privileged access to critical assets. More on PAM

Single Sign-On

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials, reducing user friction by lowering the number of credentials prompts and ensuring productivity. More on SSO

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) typically uses two or more independent access methods like passwords, security tokens, and biometric verification. This creates a defence of multiple layers. More on MFA
