Identity Governance and Administration
WORLD OF IDENTITY GOVERNANCE AND ADMINISTRATION
Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) allows businesses to provide automated access while managing the security and compliance risks to ensure the right person has the right access at the right time. IGA solutions provide rich connectivity options that enable unified management across cloud and on-premises resources. IGA capabilities, including access certification, access request, password management, and provisioning can be provided for cloud and on-premises applications.
THE NEED FOR IGA
Identity governance and administration (IGA) helps businesses to reduce operational costs by automating labour intensive processes such as access certifications, access request, password management and provisioning.
IGA systems also help to reduce the risks associated with managing users’ access by providing centralised visibility of who has access to what. They can provide both detective and preventative policy violations capabilities. They ensure inappropriate access can be quickly identified and also prevented in future via the preventive policy checks as part of the access request and provisioning processes.
IGA improves compliance and audit performance inline with regulations such as SOX, HIPAA and GDPR. IGA ensures consistent business processes for managing passwords and access with an associated audit trail.
IGA is one the few security capabilities that provide improvement to business process by ensuring resources can do their jobs by timeously provisioning them the correct access. It also ensures that when resources not longer need access that this access is revoked in target applications and systems.
With modern IGA platforms you can also expect Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities to be used to provide insights into users’ access, provide recommendations as part of the access request and certification business and assist with the modelling of access to businesses needs.
