In the post-COVID-19 era, Identity & Access Management will become more important than ever. As per the survey conducted by HID global, one third of respondents expect the future of work to be a hybrid arrangement of office, onsite and remote working. In order to facilitate working from anywhere, many businesses have already started migrating to cloud. However, sometimes users were over-provisioned during migration and more access than necessary was granted to users in many cases. Therefore, in order to maintain secure digital infrastructure in the post-COVID era, it is essential for businesses to withdraw or manage these unwanted privileges. To overcome such exposures and security challenges, implementing a combination of identity governance and privileged access management is an important next step.
Implementing Workforce IAM framework within digital infrastructure of your business can help control and manage employee identities and access. It can also help in formulating policies across IT infrastructures to protect enterprises from unauthorized and potentially harmful security breaches. It allows employees to connect to internal systems and applications while keeping bad actors out. The solutions comprising an IAM technology include Single Sign-On (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Lifecycle Management (provisioning, de-provisioning), Password Management, Compliance Management, and many more. By employing the principle of Privileged Access Management, Workforce Identity and Access Management technology give minimum access rights to employees that are needed to perform their job.
