The way organizations manage access to their critical applications and data is quickly becoming unwieldy and overly complicated. That’s because traditional identity and access management (IAM) solutions, which were supposed to help organizations guard their IT systems and networks against unsafe access, were built on outdated assumptions to meet outdated requirements. First, the user population is no longer just made up of on-premises employees, but also includes partners, vendors, customers, and clients – all of whom require access to corporate applications. Next, devices are no longer just corporate desktops, but also include corporate and personal laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Finally, this increase in the number and types of users and access methods has created an “identity crisis” at many organizations – where their systems are unable to manage and unify this disparate information, resulting in fragmented user profiles and multiple digital identities.
