Managing user identities and user-access privileges is a cornerstone of effective security for organizations. It is vitally important to verify that only the right people can access protected resources and that their activities are sufficiently monitored. However, in order to effectively compete and meet customer expectations, organizations are increasing the number of users—including customers, employees, citizens, partners and suppliers—who are allowed to access information across the web, the cloud and federated environments. This trend makes identity and access management even more challenging and exposes organizations to many potential risks.
