    Five Essential Enterprise IAM Features

    Click through for the top features organizations should look for in an identity and access management solution, as identified by Intermedia.

A study conducted by Intermedia last year found that the average employee relies on 13 different web applications at work, each requiring a different password. It also found that 89 percent of working adults retained access (i.e., a valid login and password) to at least one application from a former employer. More concerning, 45 percent retained access to "confidential" or "highly confidential" data, and 49 percent logged into an account after leaving the company.

With these realities in mind, identity and access management (IAM) software is increasingly necessary for businesses of every size to combat potential data breaches to data and IT systems. IAM is not only about single sign-on (SSO): A range of new and advanced capabilities greatly increase security while improving employees' productivity. In this slideshow, Intermedia highlights the top five features business should look for in an IAM solution.
