What is Identity and Access Management?
Identity and Access Management (IAM) provides right-level access to your business data and functions, enabling your teams to work securely from anywhere, anytime. IAM includes:
Unified Identity Management
Manage all your identities and access to all your apps in a central location, whether they’re in the cloud or on-premises, to improve visibility and control.
Simplified Identity Governance
Control access to apps and data for all users and admins efficiently with automated identity governance to ensure only authorized users have access.
Risk-Based Conditional Access
Protect access to resources and data using strong authentication and risk-based adaptive access policies without compromising user experience.
Seamless User Experience
Provide an easy, fast sign-in experience to keep your users productive, reduce time managing passwords, and increase end-user productivity.
Why you need IAM
Azure Active Directory’s IAM provides the most effective security and compliance protocols for your business. In an increasingly hybrid and remote workplace, IAM provides granular access to your critical data and business functions. IAM solutions make it possible to verify and manage identities, detect suspicious activity, and report incidents, all of which are necessary for meeting compliance requirements such as Know Your Customer, transaction monitoring for Suspicious Activity Reporting, and the Red Flags Rule.
In addition, IAM supports the development of advanced IT solutions, including:
- Modernization of infrastructure
- Streamlining single sign-on
- Collaboration across virtual boundaries
- Decentralization identities
- Building more secure apps
- Managing workload identities
- and more
