As your business grows, protecting your network from unauthorised access increases, especially if you utilise remote teams across multiple locations.
Taking control is a major challenge but not impossible. Identity and Access Management is the answer.
When things were much simpler, controlling access was relatively easy – you set the perimeter, put all resources behind a firewall and restricted access to those behind it.
Today, with no boundaries, and employees needing access to resources anytime and anywhere, it is impossible to address the unlimited ways how your data can be accessed across multiple locations often using third-party systems, platforms, applications, and devices – not always under your control.
Every organisation is different, and their Identity and Access Management requirements will vary depending on several factors – number of locations, type and number of cloud providers, number of employees, third party systems and so on.
BMIT’s solutions architects will take you through our solutions approach, a step-by-step plan to design an optimal solution tailored to your business. By leveraging the Microsoft Entra family of products, BMIT can help you make use of the best identity and access solution for your business. We can help you:
IAM helps organisations protect their data and resources by ensuring that only authorised users have access to them at the right time and for the right reasons.
The need for secure access extends beyond employees working on company machines. It also includes contractors, vendors, business partners, and people working on personal devices.
IAM helps an organisation’s IT department strike the right balance between keeping important data and resources inaccessible to most but still accessible to some.
With IAM your business can secure, manage, and define roles and access privileges for users and identities and maintain compliance with multiple standards.
Implementing Identify and Access Management solution should be based on an in-depth assessment of your security posture to identify any gaps that may be putting your identities at risk.
BMIT uses a Cybersecurity Discovery Assessment tool that can help you understand what safeguards you have and what you can apply to protect your identities.
IAM works by managing user identities and access to resources across multiple cloud instances. When a user logs in, the system checks to see if their login credentials match what’s stored in its database.
IAM solutions consist of various components and systems such as Single Sign-On (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Passwordless authentication, Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and Conditional Access.
