Today's organizations need to govern and enforce user access across multiple channels, including mobile, social and cloud. At the same time, they must address business needs such as role management, compliance and audit reporting and integration of various user populations.
Identity Access Management (IAM) addresses the mission-critical need to ensure appropriate access to resources across increasingly diverse technology environments, and to meet increasingly rigorous compliance requirements. This security practice is a crucial undertaking for any industry. It is increasingly business-aligned, and it requires business skills, not just technical expertise.
Organizations that develop mature IAM capabilities can reduce their management costs and, more importantly, become significantly more agile in supporting new business initiatives.
