Why Access Management?
Access Management strengthens the digital resilience and agility of organizations.
Just like you want to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to the physical premises of your organization, you also want to keep them out of the digital environment of your organization.At the same time, you want authorized persons – such as your employees, partners and suppliers – to be able to enter easily. In the physical world, this is relatively simple: you provide all doors and windows with locks and you provide one central entrance where people enter (for example, through a card system in combination with a reception). Ideally, you would ensure that all authorized persons have one pass or key that gives them access to all areas they are allowed to enter.
This is a challenge in the world: digital organizations have a multitude of applications that their employees, partners and suppliers can access at any time and from any location. Within these applications, each user has their own account with associated login details.
The result is that people reuse passwords, as a person can only remember 3 passwords at a time on average. This entails enormous risks: research into data leaks shows that more than 80% of the cases hackers used stolen login details or brute force attacks.
Forcing users to choose a new complicated password regularly is not a solution. This decreases productivity and does not improve security. The answer is Access Management. With Access Management you ensure that users have safe and easy access to the digital environment. At the same time, you are able to determine, based on risks, which extra steps a user must take to log in, with which you can easily secure the confidential data of the organization. In the sections below, we explain which value Access Management adds in terms of the Digital Identity Business Drivers.
