What are your Identity and Access Management challenges?

Digital transformation creates extreme opportunity and risk.

In an economy driven by information, data is always every organization’s most critical asset. Cyber criminals almost always start an attack by compromising credentials. From there, they move to other levels of privileged access escalation until they reach their goal – data.

Data today is:

  • Created at an unprecedented volume and velocity
  • Resides in more places across dynamic, distributed and hybrid infrastructures
  • Accessed by more people, in more ways, and on more devices than ever before

With this exponential data growth and digital transformation, we are seeing a shift toward Identity and Data Management (IDM) from Identity and Access Management (IAM). While IAM is critical to an overall security strategy, IDM is gaining attention with concerns related to increased cloud adoption and the rapid growth of unstructured data and the lack of data classification and ownership.

This is where Optiv comes in.

And we’ve done this before. As the founding member of Identity Defined Security Alliance, we are committed to creating and promoting industry best practices, use cases and integration architectures that support client business goals

No more chaos. You need clarity.

Many organizations suffer from technology overload with more than a dozen discrete IDM solutions and sometimes one big glaring problem: How do you know what’s really working and, if you do, are you seeing the full return from these investments? And, in the world of serious enterprise security – partial “working okay, not great fixes” aren’t enough. We save security from itself by providing battle-tested solution sets, delivering you the clarity and operational precision to get your security tight and right.


A move toward a holistic, strategic IDM program ensures secure and uniform access to cloud, IoT and on-premise assets for your organization. Data governance and protection and user lifecycle management is streamlined, providing visibility, control and governance into who has access to both structured and unstructured data regardless of its location.
