Centralized Identity Management solution manages user accounts and access rights across the organization. Identity Management improves efficiency and increases security.
Identity Management (IdM) solution manages users’ digital identities and enables them to access the right services and information according to defined principles. IdM system ensures compliance with processes, because it is not possible to bypass it. IdM system usually takes care of the access rights in all target systems (i.e. provisions) for all the users in the organization throughout the user lifecycle.
Identity Management takes care of identity lifecyle, which often is referred to as joiner, mover, leaver process. It is important to grant access for joiners efficiently. From security persepective it is at least equally important to close access when they leave or move to a different role. Identity Management is very much about processes. These lifecycle processes should be well defined, otherwise IdM solution or system cannot function properly.
Visibility and current reports of user access are also very important. Identity governance is important for all organizations and especially import in highly regulated industries. With good identity governace it is easy to report user accesses at any given time. This helps in compliance. It is also a good practise to re-evaluate access rights periodically. Good identity governance solutions offer intuitive tools for normal business user, such as line managers, to do the access recertifications. Your organization might also have some important security policies. One example is Segregation of Duty (SoD) policy.
