Identity and Access Management (IAM), an established part of most information security programs, is attracting renewed interest as a way to secure today’s borderless enterprise. As an organization’s employees become the front line of cyber attacks, IAM systems must become the front line of defense: an adaptable, dynamic, situational perimeter for the borderless enterprise. IAM solutions will evolve over the next couple years in two key ways:

1. IAM systems will patrol a dynamic, situational perimeter for the borderless enterprise, enforcing security wherever users interact with corporate data and resources. Security measures morph with the transaction, the parties and the value of data and assets in play.

2. Adaptive IAM systems draw on data from hundreds or even thousands of sources to conduct risk assessments of user behaviors and access requests. When suspicious activities are detected, next-generation IAM solutions stop users in their tracks with “stepped up” authentication or authorization requirements that users must satisfy before they can continue.
