The provisioning of user accounts and information system rights is a crucial component of your IAM strategy. It allows you to allocate exactly the right resources to the right people as changes occur during the user lifecycle.
There is a twin aim: to increase productivity by automating the creation, modification and deletion of accounts and users’ rights in IS applications, based on their movements within the organisation (entry, exit, transfers, changes, etc.), and to enhance security by keeping tight control of the authorisations granted to users and thus being able to answer the question: who has access to what?
This means meeting highly operational challenges that are central to your IAM platform. As well as technically applying your authorisations management strategy to your IS, user provisioning allows you, for example, to carry out remediation operations as a result of access rights review campaigns, to populate user credentials in Enterprise SSO or Web SSO, solutions, and to control the dependencies between the IT resources granted to users to avoid generating incompatibilities and/or “toxic rights”, which are forbidden under regulatory compliance rules.
