Identity and Access Management Information Center: Consulting, Training, and Implementation, and More from the Experts at Action Identity
Identity and access management (IAM) is a multi-faceted concept. In general, it refers to the way in which organizations control user access to information. Much like how a hotel controls who has access to rooms within the building, IAM involves managing virtual identities within a network. As people's roles within an organization change, so must their access privileges to different resources. A new hire in accounting, for example, needs access to information relevant to his or her job duties, but should not have access to systems outside the scope of their position. If the employee gets promoted, leaves the company, or transfers to a different department, it is identity and access management technology that can make the transition easier, less expensive, and more secure.
At Action Identity, we started out on this fast-emerging but critical subfield of IT in 1987. Organizations such as hospitals, universities, banks, and government contractors have all benefited from the services we offer and from the personalized solutions we create. Our ultimate objective is to help them become more efficient and more successful.
