Identity & Access Management

Why Tech Data for Identity & Access Management?

Identity and access management (IAM) in enterprise IT is about defining and managing the roles and access privileges of individual network users and the circumstances in which users are granted (or denied) those privileges. While there are various different types of solution to manage identity, it can be expressed simply as “giving a user/users the right access to the right resources for right reasons.”

Identity & Access Management

The core objective of IAM systems is one digital identity per individual. Once that digital identity has been established, it must be maintained, modified and monitored throughout each user’s “access lifecycle.”

  1. Access management – Credential/account takeover is one of the most common methods a hacker uses to obtain access to a network. Controlling access to corporate resources is one of the foundations of security which increases a business’s security posture, improves IT/business efficiency and helps achieve compliance more effectively.
  2. Privileged access management – Privileged access solutions build upon access management by providing greater control, monitoring & management to ensure business critical systems are always secure with fully accountability and agreater emphasis on compliance/audit trail.   
  3. Identity, governance & user analytics – Full control of users identity within an organisation through automated enterprise provisioning. Satisfy audit and compliance regulations while reducing risk for on-prem, hybrid or cloud platforms. Proactively eliminate internal risk caused by malicious insiders or stolen credentials from an external source with user analytics.
