Common identity and access management security challenges

Secure your business

Ensure that the right people have the right access. Discreetly verify a user’s identity when he or she logs in and throughout the session. Use analytics to make smarter, better-informed decisions to modify users’ access, having uncovered 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 partner, customer or employee-facing applications, you’ll be able to offer the seamless experience your users expect.

Establish trust

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.

Extend your team

Finding distinct IAM skills and competencies in the market is difficult. To address this challenge, many organizations look to outsourcing their IAM program to consulting and managed identity providers.
