Key elements of an IAM platform
IAM solutions are at the forefront of enterprise security, enabling businesses to have more control over their user identities and sensitive data. However, the industry moves fast and it is no longer enough to implement a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution or basic Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).
For your organization to truly embrace an IAM strategy that keeps pace with today’s speed of business, you must think holistically around what you need today, tomorrow and beyond. For long-term success, a Trusted Experience Platform should be secure, scalable, smart and simple to use.
Security is the cornerstone of trust. It’s the confidence that your identity solution is reliable and always-on, so you can focus on what matters—growing the business. You need an IAM platform that protects your organization against threats by securing and centralizing your applications, devices and end-users all in-one-place. Additionally, as your users need more access flexibility and hackers get more creative with how they take advantage of today’s dynamic workforce, you need more than basic Single Sign-On to keep your business and data safe. Instead, you need a platform with advanced machine learning capabilities to deliver real-time threat intelligence that helps automate the process of keeping your business secure.
Your business is growing fast and you need an IAM platform that can scale as you take on more employees, partners and customers. You simply can’t risk implementing a solution that doesn’t have the capacity to keep up with growth. You need an IAM platform that was built for performance at scale. With a wide breadth of extensible functionality, it should be able to expand and retract according to the changing needs of your business.
The risk of cyber attacks continue to increase as perpetrators look for smarter and less-detectable ways to circumvent security solutions and for today’s businesses, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to implement solutions that evolve as the methods of attackers evolve. Although MFA has become the defacto tool to protect end-user credentials and your business’ sensitive data, static authentication simply isn’t enough. Additionally, as IAM solutions seek to find more ways to secure the enterprise, user experience is often sacrificed, causing end-users to become increasingly agitated, often seeking out ways to evade having to authenticate several times.
Ease-of-use and speed-of-adoption are key to ensuring your IAM strategy is effectively rolled out across your organization and in order to achieve total adoption, the solution you choose must be simple and straight-forward, that means simple for you and simple for your users.
