Identity and access management (IAM) is a framework of business processes, policies and technologies that facilitates the management of electronic or digital identities. With an IAM framework in place, information technology (IT) managers can control user access to critical information within their organizations. Systems used for IAM include single sign-on systems, two-factor authentication, multifactor authentication and privileged access management.

What is Identity Access Management?
Why Identity Access Management?
Businesses leaders and IT departments are under increased regulatory and organizational pressure to protect access to corporate resources. As a result, they can no longer rely on manual and error-prone processes to assign and track user privileges. IAM automates these tasks and enables granular access control and auditing of all corporate assets on premises and in the cloud.
- Improper service and user provisioning and deprovisioning — for example, companies not deprovisioning former employee SaaS accounts
- Zombie SaaS accounts — inactive assigned users
- Too many admin accounts
- Users bypassing enterprise IAM controls.
- Productivity while
- Securing against Phishing + password spray attacks
- Compromised devices & accounts
- Lateral Traversal attacks using Credential Theft
- 3rd Party account risk
- Over-permission and entitlements in cloud.
