Securing data and complying with the growing number of associated local, regional, and international regulations are two of the biggest challenges facing most modern organizations as they become increasingly reliant on complex IT environments.
Key to achieving both data security and regulatory compliance is the ability to manage identities effectively and enforce policy-based access controls to ensure only authorized people and things have access to IT systems and data under the correct circumstances.
This has become increasingly challenging with the proliferation of digital identities, applications, security threats, and data security compliance requirements.
The ability for organizations to ensure that only the right people have access to the right resources at the right time, and to be able to prove it – is essential. This not only provides the foundation for good cybersecurity, but also for effective regulatory compliance.
Identity Governance and Administration (IGA)is a core component of Identity and Access Management (IAM) infrastructure and refers to integrated solutions that combine Identity Lifecycle Management (ILM) and Access Governance. IGA helps to cut costs, increase security, improve compliance, and give users access to the IT resources they need.
