Managing the identities of employees and their access rights in the company is the task of identity and access management. IAM is one of the most important prerequisites for ensuring data compliance. Because: Basically, every person within a company is linked to a digital identity in order to make it traceable when, who (via different accounts) has access to which data, folders and systems. Accordingly, it is a system based on roles and rules.
However, managing this and keeping it permanently up to date is often a challenge – and the trend is increasing as the size of the company grows. To support the IT department in this complex process, you can use specialised software tools. These tools automate the allocation of identities and authorisations and also ensure a comprehensive overview of current situations through monitoring and reporting.
