IT managers are trying to control user access to critical information within their organizations. This is where identity and access management (IAM) technologies come into play. With the extensive task that most of the companies are shifting to cloud computing, securing IoT resources and user identities is a priority, and determining who is who within a company has become challenging across all the industries. With the precarious volume of data available to a user, IAM lets system administrators regulate access to networks and systems according to an individual’s role in the company. IAM has a set of protocols and technologies to ensure that only the right person has appropriate access to particular resources. They not only identify, authenticate, and authorize the personnel who would use these resources, but also regulate the hardware and applications the employees have to access.
Competition, as well as innovations in the IAM market, has become intense where many technology heavyweights and exciting new talent are battling it out in order to grab top slots.
