  • Five Critical Tenets of Identity and Access Management-

    Consistency throughout the lifecycle

    It's more important than ever to apply centralized, automated controls and policies to keep key identity business processes safe, secure and compliant. Adding consistency and repeatability will allow enterprises to strengthen their controls, work more efficiently, and promote good governance policies over the long term. Additionally, cloud apps should always be handled using the same processes and centralized controls as the applications in the data center.

    Consistency throughout the lifecycle

The identity and access management (IAM) market is experiencing a renaissance with the emergence of new options for how and where to deploy IAM technology, both on-premises and as a service. At the same time, most organizations are struggling with how to best utilize the IAM solutions they have to manage their changing world of IT infrastructure. New technologies like cloud and mobile are being mixed with established mainstays like SAP, Oracle and RACF and all must be managed with an increasing focus on governance, compliance and automation. However, regardless of the delivery model selected, and whatever the mix of applications being managed, many best practices of IAM remain unchanged.

As we look back on what we've learned in the industry so far, and we lay out a path to the future products and solutions for tomorrow, some basic and very simple patterns (or tenets) of IAM approaches emerge that can help guide a solution and a deployment today and 10 years from now. This slideshow features five of the critical IAM tenets, identified by SailPoint, that are necessary for defining, securing and managing identity across the enterprise.
