Why is this so important?

At the core, IAM is designed to ensure that people are who they claim to be before being given access to a system. This reduces the probability of unauthorized access and the resulting magnitude of reputation, legal, and financial losses. Organizations know who people are and where they’re going in the environment when they access systems. Done correctly, there are several by-products that can yield advantages for a corporation. Once identities are known and actions can be logged, it’s possible to:

  • know what services external identity use the most. This data can be used to develop new offerings, cross-sell opportunities, develop a high value loyalty program, and reduce the rates of return on products and services. Competitive advantage is therefore gained.
  • know what systems are being used and if they’re under licensed, over licensed, or unnecessary.
  • remove valuable resources from administering repetitive processes like password reset requests, provisioning of applications, and employee or contractor onboarding and off boarding. New personnel don’t wait for days to get access, and off boarded personnel don’t leave behind ghost identities that could be used for compromise.
  • determine best policies for identity governance.
  • determine what identities are facing the largest number of compromise attempts and from what geographies. This information can be used to add additional controls and tune firewall and network access rules.
  • simplify IT infrastructures, thanks to a cloud-based IAM program, removing servers and their supporting costs.
  • safely enable a mobile and remote workforce.
