Why do we need IdM?

Identity Management is a collection of processes an organisation uses to manage the security lifecycle of resources for it’s entities.

It allows an organisation to protect its data.

It protects data by:

  • Access and rights management to resources
  • Policy enforcement (on accounts, entitlements, etc.)
  • Avoiding errors and omissions
  • Managing relationships between Identities (more on this later)

An effective IdM suite can provide:

  • Security :
    • Segregation of duties
    • Multiple approval workflows
  • Auditing:
    • Fraud detection
    • Fault detection and rectification
  • Metrics:
    • Reporting
    • Analytics
