Identity management is a framework of technologies, procedures and processes used to effectively control electronic identities. An identity management system is used to gather, record and control your identity and access to various services and sites. The goal is to provide consistent access based on predetermined policy and ensure you are properly authorized and authenticated. When these processes are not clear, problems can crop up in terms of compliance, hacking risk and data theft.
Identity access management does not always get the highest profile in organizations because it doesn't always affect the bottom line directly. However, a security breach poses major problems for organizations in terms of:
IAM/IDAM is an ongoing challenge. SureID®, a national leader in high-assurance identity management solutions, provides high-level security that keeps your important personal and organizational information safe. A comprehensive suite of SureID Certified™ products are available for those who want a secure and trusted digital identity both online and offline.
Identity security is increasingly difficult with today's on-the-go, mobile workforce. Employees bring their own devices to work, access services in the cloud, operate outside the confines of business while on the road and utilize a wide variety of individual devices requiring specific attention.
As well as cloud and network security, identity management also refers to on-site security. Many identity access management systems utilizing badges or credentials for building security use barcodes or magnetic stripes. These methods are easily counterfeited andare prone to tampering and are often inadequate to protect valuable data.
Increasingly, companies are turning to smartcards with enhanced privacy protection to improve facility security. Smartcards, such as a SureID Certified PIV-I™ credential, usually have a small computer chip or similar form factor. The chips are not easy to tamper with and store lots of data securely. As a result, organizations get enhanced privacy protection, sophisticated encryption, decryption, biometric matching, high-level ID security and authenticated information access. Smartcards act as a personal firewall that provide access to information when needed, and guard individual and organizational data. They can also be used seamlessly from company intranets to the internet.
Identity access management should be an integral part of every organization’s planned, systematic approach to data and physical security. An vital part of that plan is an identity management system that provides a unified, organized approach to acquiring, authenticating and administering electronic identifications of customers, employees and other stakeholders.
