What is Access Management and Why is it Important? 

Access Management (AM) ensures that the right people and job roles in your organization (identities) can access the tools they need to do their jobs. AM is critical to providing: 

  • Online Security: Traditional security is based on passwords, which unfortunately, aren’t always full proof. If a cybercriminal breaches one of your identity’s passwords, your entire organization is suddenly vulnerable to attack. Access Management narrows the points of failure and backstops them with tools to catch mistakes when they’re made. 
  • Employee Productivity: Access Management ensures that your employees don’t have to worry about having the right passwords or access level in order to get their work done. Not only does every employee get access to the perfect suite of tools for their job, but their access can also be managed as a group or role instead of individually, which reduces your IT staff’s workload. 

The problem is, not all Access Management solutions are created equal. Each solution has its own characteristics and offerings, some of which are more comprehensive than others. With so many Access Management solutions on the market, it can be difficult to know if you’re making the right buying decision for your organization’s needs/goals.
