Not every Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) knows that IAM is possibly the most critical component in their portfolio. Delivering capabilities and services that protect the organization’s data, systems, and applications from unauthorized access is a complex area.
The complexity of permissions for devices and applications, combined with an endless stream of privacy and regulatory requirements, challenges the effectiveness of traditional IAM capability models. Organizations need to change their strategy and the way IAM provide solutions, to enhance productivity while addressing a constantly changing number of identity and access requirements.
Creating an IAM organization that can deliver new, innovative and applicable solutions is critical as organizations and technologies evolve. Equally important is the ability to deliver enterprise IAM services that meet the rapidly changing access and compliance requirements, while increasing productivity and reducing IT management costs.
