Silent security

Identity and access management (IAM) is best when silent — working so in sync with the day-to-day operations of the business that users don’t even realize it’s there. While other approaches to IAM can force security in front of the user, silent security works quietly in the background, providing the right levels of access to the right users as your business transforms.

The extensive IBM identity and access management (IAM) portfolio includes authentication, privileged access management, identity governance and access management solutions. Grant access rights, provide single sign-on from any device, enhance security with multi-factor authentication, enable user lifecycle management, protect privileged accounts, and more. Learn how IBM can help your organization achieve a strong security posture and a seamless digital experience.

Access and authentication

Make logging in easier for users and secure for your organization with adaptive single sign-on (SSO) and multifactor authentication. With new adaptive access controls, tap into the industry’s deepest risk insights for smarter authentication, powered by AI. Provide a single way for users to access cloud, legacy and on-premises applications — even VPNs, mainframes, Linux, radius and desktops. Try passwordless authentication or support login methods like biometrics, FIDO2 U2F, FaceID, Touch ID, email or SMS one-time-passwords and soft tokens.

Identity governance

Confidently and securely grant access rights and entitlements within your organization. Provision, audit and report on user access and activity. Improve visibility into the way access is being used, prioritize compliance actions with risk-based insights, and make better decisions with actionable intelligence. Deploy identity governance on premises with IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence, or from the cloud with IBM Cloud Identity.

What silent security can do

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.
