There are multiple components that make up a modern IAM system including things like provisioning (or on-boarding), accounts management, identity governance, identification (or authentication), access control (or authorization) and identity federation.
IAM is a broad area that can be further divided into specific sub-components. For instance, account provisioning alone can have very different policies based on if they’re inbound or outbound. This could then splinter off into specific procedures around approval workflows , privileged accounts, credential management, and how individual users, groups, and roles are defined and controlled. Needless to say, the topic can be nuanced and complex making an integrated and fluid IAM design critical to long-term success.
When Identity and Access Management (IAM) is done right, it can serve as a key catalyst in subsequent digital transformation initiatives. That’s because IAM grants individual digital identities with the right level of secure access to resources that span across disparate departments, locations, and devices.
Access Management as a security practice is a crucial undertaking for any enterprise. Though traditionally considered to be an IT function, IAM is increasingly aligned with HR and business-focused drivers.
