More applications are being accessed by more users, over more devices than ever before. Enabling access, authenticating users and securing data is now a top priority for IT teams.
The balance of protection versus productivity
The challenge is to achieve maximum information protection without interfering with user productivity. It’s a tough balance to strike, with user pressure for fewer sign-on prompts and more applications being hosted in the public cloud. Old modes of identity management no longer cut it and often add more complexity in trying to respond to new demands.
Our Identity Assessment service is focused on helping you optimise how you manage identity, access, and privileges. We take a thorough look at what applications your users need, how they access them, their modes of working and the devices they use, along with access rights surrounding your data. We scrutinise the identity measures in place and advise where improvements could be made. Importantly, we also look at critical links in the identity management chain, such as joiners and leavers, to ensure there is a suitable process, as well as technology to support your desired security posture.
Modern IAM for modern working
The goal is to put you on the path to single sign-on (SSO), so your users enjoy one identity that follows them wherever they go and that they can administer themselves – helping to foster more modern working practices. We’ll make suggestions as to where investment in technology would be beneficial and offer recommendations on what should be considered.
We bring huge knowledge from successfully deploying IAM solutions – learnings that inform how we deliver this service and what we look for. It’s invaluable know-how that will give you the confidence to be smarter about identity to achieve a better user experience and a platform to build new services from.
