Govern your data, lower your security risk,
and enable the right individuals to access the approved resources
What is Identity Management?
Identity management is the security and business discipline that enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times and for the right reasons. It addresses the need to ensure appropriate access to resources across your network and to meet increasingly rigorous compliance requirements.
Identity management determines whether a user has access to systems, but also sets the level of access and permissions a user has on a particular system. For instance, a user may be authorized to access a system but be restricted from some of its components.
Essentially, identity management allows for the right information to be accessed by the approved resources in a secure and expedited manner, regardless of location or platform.
Staying Compliant & Reducing Risk with Identity Management
Identity Management is truly about staying secure and compliant. Identity Management is both proactive and reactive in real-time. This means you can set predetermined access rules for any given user that are stagnant as well as be able to respond to requests for access at any given time. This allows you to have total control over who accesses what and when and on what device and where which allows you to stay secure and compliant.
By implementing Identity Management across your systems and network, we’re able to ensure that your employees’ data is being governed, monitored and managed in a secure way. For example, in today’s world, there is so much remote collaboration. Documents are being shared and sent back and forth all the time. With Identity Management, you can ensure that your employees are sharing these documents in a safe manner and prevent things like breaches and cyber-attacks.
Identity Management can help with the following areas of compliance:
- PCI DSS
- NIST 800-53 & NIST 800-171
- SOC 2/3
Why Identity Management?
Identity Management for Business Leaders
This allows you to restrict access on certain files and systems between certain departments and certain roles. For example, maybe you only want C-Level employees to be able to view certain sensitive company revenue data. You also don’t want nor need the Marketing Department to access Accounting files. Identity Management allows you to set those permissions so that the right users can access what they need.
Identity Management for Employees
When you’re constantly on the go, you want to make sure the right systems and files are available to you at any given time or location. You also don’t need your document management system flooded with files that don’t pertain to you, causing an overwhelming headache of sifting through files. With Identity Management installed, you’re able to access only what you need from anywhere in a very secure environment, increasing efficiency and productivity.
