Web Access Management (WAM)

Web access management (WAM) offers integrated identity and access management for Web-based applications. Initial implementations focused on external user access. However, the growing use of portals for employee access is also driving demand for WAM solutions. Most products offer self-service password reset, delegated administration (including user self-service), a role-based access control model, workflow and automated fulfillment of the access request.
