Identity & Access Management is not just for Security its for Business!

IAM as a Business Enabler

IAM as Business Enabler

Sure, Identity & Access Management ticks the boxes for IT Security requirements for both internal IT security policies and external governance and compliance requirements and that alone is justification for some organisations to invest in an IAM solution.

But lets be honest – the real reason most businesses invest in IT systems is; to

Reduce Costs and Increase Business!

Increasing business of course should be the main goal for any size organisation as its seeks to either maintain market position (by controlling customer churn) or attract new customers away from the competition.

What you need to know about IAM compliance certificates

Can IAM software provide certificates for the compliance  with legal regulations?

IAM Compliance Certificates

IAM Compliance Certificates

The introduction of IAM systems is often driven by the need for compliance with legal regulations. From high-level laws like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) down to technical standards like ISO 27000 – the availability of an efficient Identity and Access Management is a prerequisite for the compliance with such frameworks. Therefore it is self-evident, that companies are asking vendors for the availability of general certificates that testify to be compliant with the individual regulation, when implementing the IAM solution.

To make a long story short:
Such certificates are either not available or of dubious validity.

IAM, DAG, PAM: How to break the silos of security tools

IAM; PAM, DAG for Identities

Identity Access Management, PAM, DAG

Between 2009 and 2014, the number of successful attacks on information security increased at an average annual rate of 66%. Bearing in mind that insiders are responsible for two thirds of these attacks, managing users’ access rights with Identity Access Management has become a critical issue taken very seriously by senior management.

A large number of security solutions are now available, offering different value propositions. Identity Access Management (IAM), data access governance (DAG) and privileged account management (PAM) solutions each make their contribution at different levels to controlling access rights. As the common denominator, the user’s identity can be used to de-compartmentalize these solutions, culminating in an integrated security concept. In the following I will describe a framework for using these products based on user identity, and outlines an integrated architecture meeting IT security requirements over the long term.
