Identity and Access Management (IAM) ensures that only rightfully authorized employees get access to the right resources across a highly heterogenous technological environment. It is a solution that manages access to enterprise resources. It predominantly ensures employees, partners, and customers to obtain simple & secure access to required applications. IAM systems are used by enterprises to securely initiate, store, and manage user identities and access authorizations. It provides the flexibility that enterprises require to accommodate the latest technologies and trends, extending their businesses outside the traditional perimeter.

Growing digitalization and the emergence of advanced technologies marked the development and adoption of identity and access management systems in early 2000s. IAM was highly focused on establishing capabilities for supporting access-based compliances and management requirements. These solutions were expensive and were restricted to employee identity management. These solutions evolved to reduce costs, risks, and enhance operational efficiency of organizations.

Identity and access management market growth is attributed to the increasing risks of data exposure, data loss, data leakage, insider attacks, and insecure usage. These cyber-attacks are fueled by the rapid adoption of emerging technologies such as cloud-based services, Internet of Things (IoT), and Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) across organizations. Governments across the globe are deploying stringent regulations to secure digital identities of users and restrain unauthorized access. This will improve security effectiveness, curb insider attacks, and enhance operational efficiency of enterprises and government organizations. For instance, in May 2018, the European Union implemented General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to protect critical personal information.

Rising demand for mobility and remote workforce IAM

Enterprise mobility is the growing trend of organizations that allows its employees to work from remote locations.  Organizations that go mobile benefit from enhanced productivity, less absenteeism, flexibility, reduced operational costs, enhanced technology utilization, better communication, and an encouraging work environment. These parameters lead to the long-term development of the firm, resulting in increased revenue and profits. Growth of enterprise mobility also means that the IT team has reduced visibility and control over the daily work practices of employees. Therefore, the adoption of centrally management comprehensive IAM solutions will assist the company in getting the required visibility and control over a distributed workforce.
