As Identity and Access Management continues to be the centrepiece of IT and information security for a considerable number of companies, IAM can be reasonably addressed, instead 'defined', as the gatekeeper mechanism that guards access to systems, applications & data, and represents the first line of defence protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the same. Present security demands suggest that organizations are advancing towards absolute "zero-touch authentication" to deliver as, frictionless and password-free an experience for customers and employees, as possible. Because enterprise IAM's importance is only increasing, the technology is evolving to offer administrators more functionality.
The evolving importance of IAM in security strategy is driving advancements in recognition technologies, session monitoring, IDaaS and risk management of the privileged activity.
