Improve Security with Identity and Access Management Services
While implementing identity and access management (IAM) can be a challenge, the right identity and access management services can help to improve security while streamlining administration.
A study by the Ponemon Institute showed that 74 percent of organizations feel implementing IAM is too difficult. This attitude is understandable given the complexity of managing identity in an increasingly interconnected world. Disruptive technologies like mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) create further complications. Yet access and identity management is more important than ever for protecting organizations from cyber attacks – research shows that more than 80 percent of recent breaches leveraged stolen or weak passwords.*
Partnering with an identity and access management services company can help to simplify implementation and management of IAM programs. Identity and access management services can also help organizations move from a tactical approach – where solutions are deployed to solve specific problems or manage specific users – to an approach governed by a mature identity and access management strategy that ultimately makes IAM more successful and manageable.
When choosing a partner for identity and access management services, organizations large and small can rely on the cyber security expertise and experience of IAM professionals at Optiv.
