Best Identity Management Solutions83Identity Management (IdM) is essentially about creating, maintaining, and retiring individual enterprise accounts for IT security. Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems encompass this but also provide a framework that goes beyond digital identities to providing access to users in various roles in a relatively automated fashion for cost and efficiency, while yet presenting minimal risk to sensitive data or equipment, simultaneously creating an audit trail for lawful compliance. Depending on the implementation needed by the enterprise (i.e. who is logging in and to what largely determines this) these concerns can be somewhat, highly, or totally overlapping areas. Making comparisons across suites of software and their vendors can be difficult as this apparently singular body of needs is serviced by vendors in this area in a highly modular fashion who bridge gaps with strategic or technical partnerships and integrations. But here "Identity Management" Software is defined as software which handles all or some of the tasks related to all of the above, which may be divided into: -- Identity governance or provisioning (basically role management with workflow controls). -- Access (authorization or restriction of access to certain information to certain persons across locations and systems). ...and the various methods of enabling rapid yet secure access like: -- Single sign-on (SSO, describes the ability to login to the system once and only once, gaining access to all systems without need for logging in again via help from a server). -- Multi-factor authentication (using multiple, independent components to gain access, a simple step to increase security, though at a cost of efficiency for each additional step). -- Password management and self-help for password users. -- Identity federation, related to SSO, access spanning system boundaries (e.g. cloud access). -- Directory / User Repository Management for tracking of users with access, and -- Security Analytics for auditing and compliance... ...and more. IAM software is most usually sold in a modular, configurable pieces-sold-separately fashion, where each module handles some but not all of these needs. Some of the strongest vendors in this area offer high specialization and strategic partnerships with other specializers while other established vendors, via both acquisitions and development, manage to cobble together comprehensive portfolios and subsume all the various needs under one grand suite of comprehensive IAM capabilities. Enterprises have gone both ways. A later arriving area of identity management software that greatly up-prioritizes speed and ease of access over security is called by the vendors who specialize in it Customer Identity Management, which provides simple customer registration most often via Social Sign-On capability. This allows a user to instantaneously set up an account with a service provider merely by logging in via their preferred social network account; voila, the customer has (safe, limited) access, and the enterprise gains useful information about the potential customer in less than five seconds. While traditional Identity Management Systems offer the capability to do this, smaller vendors who specialize in customer access, with its high-efficiency / low-security demands, sometimes bundle the feature with other common marketing capabilities to leverage the instantly acquired customer data (e.g. email marketing, segmentation, landing pages, etc.), thus creating a (growing) niche of customer-facing identity management systems in the process.Meibo1https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/28/TF/7HB7ELWFCDXA.pngTivoli Access Manager2https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/yf/sf/DNSXTG99HOK3-180x180.JPEGEkran System3https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/QG/K8/DPPIV6GMRF4U-180x180.PNGKeyhub4https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/WX/wI/G2GTDSLZZBPG-180x180.PNGOptimal IdM5https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/EH/wj/X1U2THW4BE4T-180x180.JPEGAraxid6https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/2T/R3/CNWPZKUM7FPC.pngPortadi7https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/3G/4W/S8F048AWOHI8.pngMicro Focus Identity and Access Management8https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/Zi/ju/TCH0JRTW622Q-180x180.JPEGExostar9https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/Tt/Jx/4X3K9CLZKHV8.jpegIdentity Audit & Compliance Manager10https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/Sb/M2/ORIF5FSQ7TGG.jpegcMatrix11https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/xk/G6/9OBG9R06U9KF.jpegVynamic Security Access Protection12https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/6f/nZ/16ZZEPNUXFPL-180x180.JPEGActiveRoles Server13https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/EG/mg/NJATDQVR2SC3-180x180.JPEGWhiteOPS14https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/He/xP/LUNDC4DAP386.jpegLayer7 Directory (formerly CA Directory)15https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/XC/qb/OEOG2461M9II-180x180.JPEGAWS Identity & Access Management16https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/LY/YM/1TDXH4LPI5BH-180x180.JPEGCentrify Zero Trust Privilege Services17https://media.trustradius.com/vendor-logos/e9/VT/ZK0AX2SCS5T5-180x180.JPEGSecureAuth IdP18https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/pG/Nl/UTFMWMBX0SZV-180x180.JPEGForgeRock OpenIDM19https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/1U/9n/27RS9HR4BJ5E.png

Identity Management Solutions Overview

What are Identity Management Solutions?

Identity and access management software manages information about the identity of software users and controls access to corporate resources. The overall goal of identity and access management software is to improve security and employee productivity. Identity management solutions should also lower costs while managing user identities and credentials.

Identity Management Solutions Features & Capabilities

  • Access (authorization or restriction of access to certain information to certain persons across locations and systems).

  • Single sign-on (SSO, describes the ability to login to the system once and only once, gaining access to all systems without the need for logging in again via help from a server).

  • Multi-factor authentication (using multiple, independent components to gain access, a simple step to increase security)

  • Password management and self-help for password users.

  • Identity federation, related to SSO, access spanning system boundaries (e.g. cloud access).

  • Directory / User Repository Management for tracking of users with access, and

  • Security Analytics for auditing and compliance...

The IT Environment

The modern IT environment is highly complex with large numbers of users accessing a tangle of on-premise and cloud applications. This makes identity and access management especially difficult. Each application essentially has its own proprietary identity store. Consequently, there is no directory federation, which burdens users with having to remember multiple logins. It burdens IT administrators with having to manage multiple different tools, procedures, and policies to manage user identities.

How Identity Management Solution Helps

Identity management solutions make it much easier to manage provisioning while ensuring compliance. In other words, providing and revoking access to applications in accordance with policies. Identity and access management software also supplies self-service capabilities for end-users, so that they can get the application access they need with no delays. They can also be automatically de-provisioned on the day they leave.

Pricing Information

Identity Management software vendors usually price per month per user. Some vendors sell tiers of functionality with enterprise-level pricing which can be as much as $35 per user per month. Others provide unbundled pricing allowing customers to buy capabilities such as multi-factor authentication or API access management as individual capabilities for specific users.
