The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force in on 25th May, 2018 – so how will this affect your organization? How do you mitigate vulnerabilities and risks with the support of Identity Access Management?

You may feel overwhelmed by the requirements of this regulation, especially considering the financial ramifications of non-compliance.

IAM: Control IT access of thousands of external employees

How to find an IAM solution that controls access of thousands of external employees to hundreds of IT applications.

IndustryLarge-scale projects represent a major challenge as regards IT security, because it is not only the thousands of employees who use the IT systems; in addition, often thousands of external employees from several hundreds of partner companies also need to access a broad range of applications while working on the project. The Identity Access Management must ensure that all involved have the required access rights at the right time, as well as revoking the rights as soon as they are no longer needed.

In large-scale project a staff of several thousand is involved. Assume that about half of them are office workers, meaning they require access to the IT applications. But no single company can build major industrial projects alone e.g. a power station or an airport, so a large number of external subcontractors and experts are involved in the project.
