    Identity and Access Management - A Breakthrough in Information Security

    Jan. 18, 2014 - NEW YORK -- Security is nothing but ensuring safety from danger or threat. A business faces massive threat from various sources that are looking for means to capitalize on the weaknesses. Information security is thus of prime importance for any business. Information security is defined as the act of protecting information from unauthorized access. To prevent this malicious form of fraud, companies like AmerIndia offer Identity and Access Management (IAM) services. The complexity of business and its processes gets a new lease of management through these automated solutions.

    As businesses today have a wide set of users, managing the task of who sees what becomes cumbersome. This is where IAM plays a role. IAM builds and defines identities across the organization thereby defining the accessibility and restrictions. This ensures that only authorized users are able to view or access information that needs highest security. On the other hand, information that needs to be viewed will present itself on command. This maximizes security and control as it restricts the availability of information to pre-defined identities. For example, a person will not be able to view certain information if his identity curbs access to them. The management has to identify the level of security across employee resources that have privy to information that concerns their work profile.

    Companies like AmerIndia, who provide Identity and Access Management services, work closely with the management team to ascertain that the current IT infrastructure does not lose its approach. The key is to infiltrate the framework in such a way that the advantages of IAM are inculcated without the IT system losing balance. This challenging area forms a basis for the numerous benefits that IAM offers. Along with this, companies who implement IAM find that their costs decrease as the overall operational and maintenance costs reduce.  Not only does the efficiency increase as options like Single Sign on bring about flexibility and greater control. Outside threats are also curbed as accessibility to information gains higher standards of security.

    Employees need to be made aware about the behavior that can pose a risk to the system of security. Users who fall prey to fraud are the ones who had resorted to easily identifiable passkeys. Companies can indulge in unique identification passkeys that can boost up security. IAM also makes it possible for companies to add new users as new employees join. It is important for the management to ensure that access of employees who have left the organization get cancelled to prevent misuse.

    Identity and Access Management can help to a great extent in managing the access of information across the organization. This can be implemented across multiple destinations, and this boosts the flexible nature of this system. Companies who opt for this should also educate employees of the system so that fraud can be curtailed.
