Identity Access Management

Identity and Access Management (IAM) as a security solution enables customers, partners and employees to access business and enterprise applications in a secure and compliant manner. An IAM solution flexible enough to enable this access is a prerequisite for an IT transformation journey that allows employees to bring their own devices to work (BYOD), to reap the benefits of agility and reduced cost using cloud services (identity as a service) and to enhance user experience across all electronic channels. To support increasing e-commerce using internet, organizations must enhance the consumer experience and federate with partners in an efficient, secure and cost-effective manner. To manage users and comply with regulations, it is essential to automate user identity lifecycles processes User identity will soon be the cornerstone of all big data projects enabling organizations to personalize services across a mass customer base.
