Identity and access management (IAM) is about defining and managing the roles and access privileges of individual network users and the circumstances under which users are granted (or denied) these privileges. IAM systems provide administrators with tools and technologies to change a user's role, track user activities, create reports on these activities, and enforce policies on an ongoing basis. These systems are designed to provide the means of managing user access across an entire enterprise and to ensure compliance with the company's policies and state regulations.
More than access
An identity management system can be a cornerstone of a secure network because managing user identity is an important part of the access control image. The company must define their identity management system on several parameters. Companies must define their access policies, specifically specify who has access to what data resources and under which conditions they have access. The system can help control users' access digitally, but also physically.
