Evolve IGA to support higher levels of automation

Identity governance and administration (IGA) is the largest investment that most IAM programs will make. It’s also the highest risk IAM technology to deploy. 

IGA deployment efforts are about 80% business process automation, yet organizations continue taking tool-centric implementation approaches and underestimating efforts involving people and processes.

Hyperconnected digital business environments are forcing organizations to manage large numbers of users across many different applications, platforms and operating systems. Most organizations struggle to handle this proliferation of identities and systems. Implemented carefully, today’s increasingly cloud-delivered IGA solutions can help you successfully reign in digital era identity challenges.

Integrate Your Cloud Security Posture With Identity and Access Management

Cloud services can become a vulnerability to an organization’s threat protection and data security strategy if mishandled. Although IAM programs protect the front door of sanctioned applications, they do not protect against unsanctioned applications. This is where cloud access security brokers (CASBs) can bridge the gap.
