Each and every business needs to ensure that they have provided their users with such secure access and this can be quite challenging, but with the identity and access management solutions, you can get to achieve the need for improved security, save on cost and time as well. The following is a rundown on some of the basic facts you need to know of when it comes to identity access management.
System users will in most cases require and demand quick and easy access to systems and information wherever it is that they may be located. Of course, this is a need that most businesses live up to and know that they need to provide their users with such ease of access and at the same time they have to handle the need to balance the demanding security requirements. The cybercriminals know that organizations must of course support remote users and as such they will try always to exploit their enterprise identity systems via the use of the social engineering attacks that then allow them to compromise the credentials and identity of the legitimate users which in turn gives them access to the enterprise systems. By and large, the past few years have actually seen a rise in the use of social engineering attacks by the cybercriminals and it is indeed proving to be such a potent form of attack and threat to your users identity.
By the way, the need for secure access is one that is really proving to be a challenge for many in the IT profession. The reason for this is looking at the fact that the IT team in an organization will have to meet the needs of the diverse landscape of users there are across the various applications. As a result of this, you will realize that there will often be arising situations and cases that would call for a re-look or modifying of the security or access permissions. At the same time, there will be new users who will be hired and there as such will be the need to have their access provisioned as fast as can be during the process of coming on board. Don’t forget the fact that there will as well be those who will be leaving for one reason or another and as such they must have their permissions revoked. There are as well some of the employees who will be promoted and as they rise in rank, they will have to be give access permissions for the offices that they will subsequently be holding. Still such will have to relinquish the keys and permissions to the roles and offices that they no longer require, which means that the permissions that they no longer require to be relevant in their new roles must be removed or revoked.
