Identity and Access Management

Access determines everything in an organization. Temporary employees are generally given the least amount of access, to protect sensitive information and prevent espionage attempts. Similarly, even within an organization there need to be different levels of access clearly defined.

Access can be thought of as organizational hierarchy. Clearly defined layers and sublayers of authority not only make employees accountable, but also help structure network architecture. Our network solutions are extremely flexible; configuring new access roles can be done within minutes and without compromising any other layer.

Identity goes hand in hand with access. Identity can mean many different things from organisation to organisation, depending on the levels of authentication being used. For example; a marketing company might not need more than IP based identity, whereas banking and finance companies might require additional authentication factors such as a personalised PIN or even bio-metrics!

Identity encompasses broad headings such as account names and passwords, while access will determine the type of account and the amount of information available to the user!
