Web Access Management Software

Web Access Management Software Overview

What are Web Access Management Systems?

Web Access Management Systems control identity and access management to web applications and resources. They can contain a number of different services (e.g. policy-controls and authorization, multi-factor authentication or single sign-on), prioritizing security or convenience to align with business needs.

Web access management systems have become a legacy approach to access management. They emerged in the 1990’s, when access to on-premise systems was the most common access management use case. At this point, web access was a unique variation from on-premise access management processes. This evolution initially required specialized systems for web access management.

Now, centralized identity management and privileged access management systems have become the norm. Access to cloud-based systems is a necessity in virtually any organization. The universal need for web access, as well as more complex identity management processes, have made web access management systems functionally obsolete in most cases.
