Identity and access management projects have long been perceived as complex, technical and expensive. The approach adopted by companies nowadays has changed considerably: all technical, business and organisational aspects of the IAM strategy are covered, and its value no longer needs to be proven, either for development or in terms of cybersecurity.
Enhanced security, improved user experience, opening of the information system, compliance, etc. – a pragmatic and iterative approach to identity and access management allows you to obtain initial results quickly, and then make maximum use of them over the medium and long term.
Apart from the expected functionnal benefits, the financial gains obtained thanks to identity and access management should not be overlooked: some of the company’s operating costs are reduced considerably, and the initial investment can be turned to profit quickly.
Automate identity management for a guaranteed ROI: save time and gain productivity
Managing the life cycle of users within your organisation and the associated processes is a substantial task. Creating the identity of the new arrivals, taking into account people’s moves and changing situations, harmonising the data from the various reference bases, … When performed manually and independently, these are all time-consuming tasks, and a source of errors. Furthermore, they complicate the implementation of a cross-functional security policy.
Our IAM platform allows you to automate administration tasks for your identities, detect inconsistencies and discrepancies with your authorisations model, and thus eliminate the operational risk linked to the use of manual processes. You therefore considerably reduce the processing time for these tasks, of low added value for your IT teams, and the associated operating costs. The final return on investment will depend on the degree of automation of the processes associated with the life cycle of your users, the hourly cost of the work by your teams, but also the number of procedures to be carried out, specific to each organisation and determined by turnover, internal mobility, the external provider usage policy, etc.
The automation of procedures also serves to reduce the time required to obtain authorisations for your employees for their application resources, thus improving their productivity.
Reduce the cost of managing passwords through your helpdesk:
a quick and measurable ROI
Whether it be your partners, employees or customers, your users need to access several applications every day, multiplying the number of authentication phases and the username/password combinations they need to remember.
Beyond the security risks linked to the use of weak passwords for example, or to the absence of multi-factor authentication, the password reset operations by user support represent an often considerable cost for the organisation, but they create no value.
To reduce the workload for the management of passwords and their renewal, our IAM platform offers you Single Sign-On (SSO) and self-service password reset features. Your users will enjoy an optimum user experience, while your administrators will no longer need to perform tasks of little added value but expensive for your organisation, and will retain a maximum level of security. Your return on investment on the administration costs and the gains in productivity resulting from the independence of your employees will quickly become clear.
Cover all of your SSO
usage scenarios through
a unified IAM platform
Access to the information system is a complex subject which involves different user populations, numerous and varied login contexts, a vast range of applications, etc. It is not therefore unusual for a company to have carried out several access management projects over the years and, depending on their priorities, to have acquired several market solutions:
- An Enterprise SSO (or eSSO) solution deployed internally on the workstations of users of the IS, in order to provide them with the convenience of single sign-on, and giving them independence for password reset operations.
- A Web Access Management (or Web SSO) solution protecting web applications, deployed in an intranet and/or extranet context.
- An identity federation solution dedicated to B2B exchanges with partners, or used to improve the user experience for access to Cloud applications such as O365, GoogleApps or SalesForce for example.
- A Mobile SSO solution to secure access to the IS from mobile peripheral devices and thus manage the effects of BYOD.
Several solutions therefore need to be managed, maintained, operated, supervised and audited, yet they address similar requirements. The implementation of our unified IAM platform allows you to address all of your access problems from a single administration interface. The operating and maintenance costs are then reduced considerably, along with the associated workload.
