Identity and Access Management (IAM)
In the past, a digital identity was equal to a user inside the organization. Today, with cloud computing, often from multiple vendors and mixed with both on-prem solutions and public applications or SaaS solutions (Software as a Service), a hybrid architecture is being formed.
This increases the demand for a more dynamic architecture around digital identities and security. In the digital world it’s not enough to just handle the people inside the organization. We need to take care of partners, customers and citizens in our digital identity solution. And to add even more complexity to the architecture, it’s not only about users. With Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) at our doorstep, we need to support persons, devices and code in the same way and system.
Speed is a key driver
Many of the challenges around administration and user provisioning is about speed. The time spent on creating accounts and entitlements is often time consuming and ineffective, not to mention the time needed for modifications and requests for changes. Maybe the most sensitive and dangerous process in an unstructured routine is the offboarding of users and systems that are no longer part of an organization. Here, both a waterproof onboarding and offboarding strategy is key. Let our IAM experts advise and support you to secure the management and maintenance plan for your assets ranging from data to licenses.
Based on our experience, it’s not only about technology. The need to understand and set up a strategy, governance and work with process management are all key objects to a successful Identity and Access Management solution. The key driver for IAM is speed. With the high pace of digital transformation, Enfo’s experts help to make sure that digital identities are created, modified and disabled on demand and at the same time handled as the valuable assets that they are.
