IDENTITY AND ACCESS MANAGEMENT
Put identity and access management at the heart of your security architecture.
It's about more than just identity management...
In today’s connected world, access and identity management are critical. And as we strive to become more connected both internally and externally, security becomes harder to manage. When a new employee joins your organisation, how do you provision them and then manage them from start to leave date? What access do they have, and to what?
Every time we access another solution or application, our identity footprint extends.
Identity management is at the core of security architecture and requires continuous management. Manual processing of the control and management of identities leaves the door open for security breaches.
Careful commissioning and decommissioning as people join and leave are essential to reduce or eliminate high-security risks, and regular audits of identity and access permissions and controls are needed.
This isn’t just the concern of companies who need high levels of security – it’s applicable to any business with users connected to the outside world through a company’s networks.
A proactive, comprehensive identity management strategy that controls your entire network and cloud applications from a single point greatly reduces risks and overheads. Having a single identity to access all applications becomes critical, but security needs to be paramount. If the one identity is compromised, access to many systems could be breached.
How we bring it to life
Identity and access management (IAM) is a central asset in today’s enterprise landscape, comprising processes and information technologies that are interrelated and mutually dependent on all business areas. It strengthens regulatory compliance, secures your operations and improves operational agility, delivering management control, operational efficiency, security, compliance and cost savings.
Any enterprise, regardless of scale, needs to control people accessing their business, either through the physical or digital front doors. It's important to manage access to information and applications which are often scattered across a number of internal and external systems. Over time, organisations must provide controlled access for an increasing number of identities, ensuring that both security and data integrity are maintained.
Using Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and solutions such as Privileged Identity Management (PIM), businesses exert the controls needed to reduce cyber intrusion risks, actively protecting your business, swiftly detecting risks and responding proactively to intrusion.
Enable secure remote access
Are you sure of the identity of the user access request? Can you apply conditional access and verify the connected device and its location is as you expect it?
With multi-factor authentication (MFA) using Microsoft Azure MFA, you exert a layer of control in addition to just the password. This is a fundamental of the zero trust model and is the first building block of your improved business security.
Release your reliance on passwords
Simply put, passwords are easily broken.
Today's sophisticated cyber attackers have significant tooling and resources at their disposal. Whether through technical tools or smart social engineering, attacks are frequent and passwords are always the subject of breach.
Going beyond passwords is the next tool in the cyber battle ground. Our Passwordless Readiness Assessment assists you to identify the pathway to a new level of access and identity control.
Enable secure single identity
Every organisation today is likely to have some semblance of business to business connectivity – do you want to be responsible for the identity management for all those credentials?
Using Microsoft Azure B2B, provides a secure single identity mechanism across all modes of data access. Drawing on an established framework, our security team help you navigate the security landscape across your and your partner businesses to improve your overall security posture.
