IAM Technology

Improving Security with Superior IAM Technology
 

For companies investing in identity and access management (IAM) programs, selecting the right IAM technology can be a challenge.

Many companies make the mistake of implementing IAM technology on a purely tactical basis, addressing the requirements of a specific process or user group but failing to consider how the investment might fit into a broader identity and access management strategy. This approach typically results in a hodgepodge of IAM technology that is unlikely to evolve successfully as business requirements change and new threats emerge.

When selecting and deploying IAM technology, having an experienced partner can help to select effective identity and access management tools and deploy them successfully and cost-efficiently. For organizations seeking expert IAM advice, Optiv provides market-leading IAM security services.
