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.
