Access Management

Access management (AM) is a market that provides tools that establish, enforce and manage journey-time access controls to cloud, modern standards-based web and legacy web applications. These tools can be used by workforce users in business-to-employee (B2E) use cases, and by external users in business-to-consumer (B2C), business-to-business (B2B), government-to-citizen (G2C) and gig economy use cases. The most common delivery model for AM is through SaaS, but some vendors also offer software- or appliance-delivered deployments.
