Identity and access management is taking on an increasingly central role in companies’ security architectures. With nearly 20 years of experience of shaping and implementing IAM (Identity and Access Management) strategies for key accounts and mid-sized firms, we are sure of one thing: IAM is not static. Once the initial need is met, it will evolve and grow. IAM is a very dynamic system, which will live long after the initial build: IS uses and technologies evolve, new regulatory changes emerge, new user needs develop, and so on.
For example, in Access Management, it is common to start with well-defined projects such as the deployment of multi-factor authentication to protect accesses to cloud services, or the roll-out of self-service password reset for users, but what is certain is that new needs will emerge later: Web SSO and identity federation, enterprise SSO, etc.
Having a long-term vision of your IAM strategy is much more effective and profitable than having to accumulate various solutions that may not be compatible and are not always well integrated.
The components and functionalities of identity and access management bring numerous benefits to all users who are drawn into the organisation’s ecosystem, whatever business sector they each belong to. Before committing yourself to an IAM project involving one or more of its components, it is therefore crucial to determine your strategy.
