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.
