In the search for competitiveness, companies now need to be increasingly reactive and agile. To achieve this, they seek immediate exchanges, both internally and with their customers, providers and partners. Organisations are increasingly broken down, with entities coming together when required for projects in order to work in networks, forming what we refer to as “the extended company”. The digital transformation merely serves to reinforce this fundamental change in working methods by supporting collaborative work and productivity through technological innovation.
The first consequence of this is the need to open up the information system, and this affects the company’s security policy. The most competitive organisations therefore ensure that their identity and access management strategy is organised in such a way as to allow smooth and secure interaction with their entire ecosystem.
What are the 3 main benefits of IAM
for management of your partners?
Authorise and secure external access
to your information system
Giving access to the information system to people or IT resources who are not necessarily known or controlled while protecting the security of the IS is not easy. Your partners generally have their own work environments, security policies and digital identities.
Using our IAM platform, based on market standards, guarantees secure interoperability with the external digital world. You can therefore increase inter-connections with your partners in complete confidence and enjoy all the advantages of an open information system.
Our IAM platform offers all the features adapted to an extended company. You can therefore check all digital identities accessing your IS, propose strong authentication mechanisms adapted to all uses, whoever the users and whichever the applications concerned, and easily connect your business partners or Cloud applications using identity federation.
Provide an optimum user experience
to your partners
In order to be productive and competitive, companies must facilitate and increase the number of BtoB exchanges. It is essential that companies remove the constraints linked to authentication in order to offer partners smooth access to their IS.
Using Web SSO and identity federation mechanisms, our IAM platform allows your partners to access your applications and services with complete transparency and without the need for reauthentication using Single Sign-On (SSO), the advantages of which are already proven.
Allowing your partners to avoid the constraints involved in repeated registration or authentication processes encourages them to remain loyal. In fact, offering a smooth and coherent user experience together with quality services now constitutes a genuine lever for growth and efficiency.
Facilitate compliance with security regulations and standards
The challenges in opening up the information system and developing partner exchanges must take into account the regulatory compliance requirements. It is essential to know exactly who will be able to access what, and guarantee complete traceability of the operations carried out.
Tightening up your users’ access to the IS is a key regulatory compliance factor in many business sectors where data is sensitive, such as health and finance for example, and where confidentiality is a non-negotiable condition.
Deploying a centralised identity and access management platform gives you 360° visibility of your users, their access rights, and the associated operational risks. It allows you to guarantee the traceability of the actions carried out, in particular by your partners, essential factors in compliance.
