Managed IAM provides control over the administration and management of identities including access to systems, applications and data, but without the complexity of managing an IAM solution.
Well-controlled access to information is crucial. Only the right people can have access to the right systems, applications and data. If this process is not well organised, it may have major consequences. This can compromise the privacy of customers, partners and employees and thus compliance with laws and regulations. Also, failing IAM processes can damage productivity. For example, it is annoying for employees if they have to log in again and again, or mistakenly no longer have access to data.
However, the management of identities and keeping access rights in order is a complex matter. From day 1, a new employee must have access to the right IT systems, but in a safe way. If, for example, job changes change the role of a person, then the associated rights also need to be adjusted. On the contrary, when they leave the service, access rights must be withdrawn immediately. This is a complex and knowledge-intensive process that is often incorporated into general IT management, resulting in high costs and efforts.

This managed service contains all the standard building blocks, knowledge and expertise that an organization needs for a successful IAM project. With full control over costs and compliance with laws and regulations at every stage of this service.
Always in control
“Organizations run serious risks if an integrated IAM policy is lacking. Just think of the image damage that an organization can suffer from unauthorized access to information ”, says Mathijs Valk, VP Identity Operations at KPN Security. “It is no coincidence that external auditors and accountants have included IAM in assurance and accountant reports. With KPN Security's Managed IAM, organizations are always in control, without the complexity of management and always the right focus on their core activities.”
