Identity Management Security Best Practices

Not all threats to enterprise security come from the outside. A strong identity and access management program keeps users productive and information safe.

To protect critical information, access controls and auditing are essential — even for your privileged users. Suppose, for example, that one of your system administrators is apparently using his privileges to access material that he shouldn’t. You need to discover what’s going on. And if you must terminate his employment, you need to ensure that all of his access accounts and privileges are quickly removed as well.

Power SolutionsProtecting against this type of threat is the function of identity and access management (IAM) solutions. IAM helps ensure that people have the right access to the right resources, and only those resources, at the right time. Delivering this access is essential for enabling employees to work productively. But at the same time, centralized IAM is critical for controlling individual user identities, governing user access rights and maintaining visibility into privileged-user actions. Recent events have shown that entities from both the public and private sectors must be vigilant about knowing the activities of highly authorized users.
