Organizations establish identity and access management (IAM) systems to control access to corporate resources. To do this effectively, it is essential to identify users requesting access as well as take into consideration their roles and privileges granted by the organization. Therefore, the objective of IAM is to facilitate access to corporate resources while restricting access when and where it is not warranted. Since IAM impacts both IT and corporate objectives, it is better suited to approach it as a business process and implement it as an IT strategy, with stakeholders’ and corporate champions’ active participation. Cistel can work with your team to plan an IAM roadmap, paying careful consideration to the priorities and compliances identified by business, corporate and IT teams within your organization.
IAM has its origins in managing user directories, single-sign-on and access control to corporate systems and websites. Today IAM systems are widespread in corporate, government, banking, and customer access serving hundreds of millions of users. The most popular social network systems, webmail, e-government, online banking, and customer support systems use IAM to manage users’ access and provide personalized services real-time.
With the advent of cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS), IAM plays a central role in the evolution of the IT industry. Cistel can provide you with consulting services in areas such as:
