Identity and access management is all about granting employees the access they need in a way that is as painless as possible (for you and them) so they can simply get on with doing their jobs. Sounds simple, right? However, it can be difficult if your IT department doesn’t have the time or tools to effectively and accurately manage employee access. Done right, you’re the hero. Done wrong, your company’s most valuable asset—its data is at risk. 

In today’s technology-driven world, there are more and more applications that require access control.  The average user accesses 27 different company applications and this translates into over 12 hours of IT time to provision each person and almost 5 hours to de-provision. With smaller IT departments, each IT staff member has to be a jack-of-all-trades, spreading their talents across a broad spectrum of responsibilities. This broad spectrum approach can cause security and compliance to suffer.
It’s a world of do more with less. And there are solutions out there that can help you do that. By deploying an Identity as a Service your IT department can automate provisioning tasks to reduce security-compromising errors. Once you understand the need for an IAM solution, the next question is do you need an IAM as Service or an on-premises IAM solution?
