Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions are used by organisations to manage user identities and restrict access to corporate resources. IAM solutions make ensuring the authorised people have access to the relevant resources at the specific times for the appropriate purposes. They are essential for protecting IT systems from cyberattacks and data loss and are a crucial part of a defense-in-depth security strategy.
Due to the rapid growth of SaaS apps and remote work, IT teams are finding it increasingly difficult to manage individual user rights and permissions. IAM simplifies the onboarding and offboarding procedures in addition to relieving the strain of individual access management.
