Access Governance

Simplifying IAM with Superior Access Governance Solutions

For organizations with complex identity and access management requirements, superior access governance can help to improve compliance with regulatory mandates, reduce the time and cost involved in overseeing IAM programs, and manage risk in more strategic and deliberate ways.

Many organizations, however, lack an overarching identity access management strategy that is the prerequisite for effective access governance. Too often, companies put IAM solutions in place simply to protect a particular business process or meet the needs of a specific group of users. This tactical approach doesn't facilitate the kind of holistic and thoughtful approach to IAM security required for superior access governance.

Elevating a tactical project to a strategic program is not an easy task. It requires extensive experience and deep expertise in IAM principles as well as concrete knowledge of identity and access management tools, vendors, trends and threats. That's why, when seeking to improve both IAM programs and access governance, more organizations today turn to services from Optiv.
