Protect your business

Ensure that the right people have the right access and discreetly verify user identities when they log in and throughout the session. By using artificial intelligence (AI) to make smarter, better-informed decisions to modify users’ access, you’ll uncover outliers and toxic combinations of entitlements.

Enable digital transformation

Quickly enable access to resources and applications, whether in the cloud, on premises, or in a hybrid cloud. Whether you're providing access to enterprise users, privileged administrators or consumers, you’ll be able to offer the seamless experience your users expect.

Establish compliance

Regulations come and go. It was SOX yesterday, GDPR and PSD2 today, and it will be something else tomorrow. Centrally manage access certifications, on- and off-boarding, and separation of duties violations, so you’re prepared to meet new regulations when they arise.

Certified IAM consultants and security specialists can extend your teams to plan, design, deploy and manage outcome-driven identity solutions. Our services professionals can help your organization maximize IAM investments and set up programs for long-term success.

How one company boosts business agility with cloud-based identity management

A boutique asset management firm sought to provide its high-end clients with innovative services. Working with an IBM Business Partner, it put in place IBM Security Verify Access for its digital wealth management platform, so clients, advisors, brokers and others can use one set of credentials to log in on any device and access all resources — knowing that personal and company data is protected against cybercriminals.
