Identity & Access Management (IAM)


Using this set of solutions, we create a reliable identity for each employee, partner and resource in the company. We use tools like Active Directory, Web Directory, SSO, MFA, IGA and PAM to ensure that Identity cannot be compromised.

Universal Directory

Creating a universal directory is an essential step towards establishing a robust Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution. The universal directory serves as a central repository for user identities and access permissions, and it ensures that users have the correct access to the resources they need to perform their job functions.

A universal directory includes all users, including employees, contractors, partners, and customers, and it should support multiple authentication protocols, such as LDAP, SAML, and OAuth. It should also be highly available, scalable, and secure, with features such as data encryption, access controls, and audit trails to protect user identities and access permissions.

With a universal directory in place, we implement a comprehensive IAM solution that provides secure access to critical resources while ensuring that users have the necessary access to perform their job functions.

SSO – Single Sign-On

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication mechanism that allows users to access multiple applications or resources with a single set of credentials. With SSO, users do not need to remember different usernames and passwords for each application or resource, reducing the likelihood of weak or compromised passwords.

SSO is important for companies because it improves user productivity, reduces password-related help desk calls, and simplifies the management of user identities and access permissions. SSO also enhances security by reducing the risk of password-related security breaches, such as password reuse or phishing attacks.

By requiring users to authenticate once, SSO enables companies to implement stronger authentication methods, such as multi-factor authentication, without adding unnecessary complexity for users.

Single Sign-On (SSO) also helps in the onboarding and offboarding of employees by streamlining the provisioning and deprovisioning of access permissions to applications and resources. During onboarding, new employees can be added to the SSO directory, and their access permissions to applications and resources can be automatically provisioned based on their job roles and responsibilities. This simplifies the onboarding process, reduces errors, and ensures that new employees have access to the resources they need from day one.

During offboarding, SSO allows administrators to quickly and easily deprovision access permissions for outgoing employees. By removing the employee’s SSO credentials, access to all applications and resources associated with that account is automatically revoked, preventing unauthorized access after the employee has left the company. This reduces the risk of security breaches caused by employees retaining access to company resources after they have left.

MFA – Multi Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security mechanism that requires users to provide two or more forms of authentication to access a system or application. MFA is an effective way to enhance the security of company resources by adding an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access.

By requiring users to provide a second factor, such as a one-time code generated by a mobile app or a biometric factor, MFA reduces the risk of account takeover due to compromised passwords or stolen credentials.

MFA is particularly effective against attacks such as phishing, where attackers attempt to trick users into revealing their passwords or other authentication factors. Even if a user’s password is compromised, the attacker would still need to provide a second factor to gain access to the system or application.

MFA also provides visibility into who is accessing company resources and from where, which can help organizations detect and respond to suspicious activity.

IGA – Identity Governance and Administration

Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) is a framework for managing the lifecycle of user identities and access permissions within an organization. IGA helps companies to control access to critical systems and data, ensuring that employees have access only to the resources they need to perform their job responsibilities.

IGA solutions provide features such as automated provisioning and deprovisioning of user accounts, access certification workflows, and role-based access control (RBAC). These features help companies to reduce the risk of data breaches caused by unauthorized access to sensitive information.

IGA also provides visibility into user access and activity, allowing organizations to detect and respond to suspicious behaviour. By maintaining a complete and accurate picture of user identities and access permissions, IGA helps companies to comply with regulations and audit requirements, reducing the risk of compliance-related penalties.

PAM – Privileged Access Management

Privileged Access Management (PAM) is a security solution that helps companies to manage and control access to sensitive systems and data by privileged users. PAM solutions provide granular control over access to critical assets by providing privileged users with temporary and monitored access only when necessary, limiting the risk of misuse or abuse.

PAM solutions provide features such as password vaulting, session recording, and real-time monitoring, which enable companies to identify and mitigate potential threats quickly. These solutions also provide tools for automated discovery and management of privileged accounts and entitlements across the enterprise, which helps organizations to reduce the risk of security breaches caused by unmanaged privileged accounts.

PAM solutions also provide compliance-related features such as audit trails and reporting, which are essential for demonstrating regulatory compliance. By implementing PAM solutions, companies can improve their security posture and reduce the risk of data breaches caused by misuse or abuse of privileged access.
