Top 10 Identity Governance and Administration Consulting/Service Companies - 2019
In today’s interconnected world, identity governance and administration (IGA) is critical to every organization as the need to address regulatory controls and compliance mandates grows more than ever. Identity governance experts are coming up with best-in-class security services that deliver user administration, privileged account management, and identity intelligence across cloud, hybrid, and on-premise environments. By adding SaaS connectors for on-premise IGA services, identity governance and administration providers are ushering new ways to enhance access control and identity verification. As security becomes complicated by the growth of Bring Your Own Device, Internet of Things, SaaS, IaaS, and mobile, enterprises have begun to implement better policy management capabilities to streamline administrative processes, thereby saving time and money.
For mission-critical applications, such as finance, HR, or applications with confidential data, a high degree of control and governance is required. To maintain the outcomes in a growing environment that’s growing more and more regulated, IGA service providers are offering services to facilitate the creation of an identity repository based on which identity and access governance policies can be applied. Organizations can request rights to particular applications on the suite, consult identity repositories, maintain their own identity data, and register the arrival or departure of an individual.
As the use of smart devices and cloud computing to deliver services becomes more popular among organizations and employees, firms have begun looking for services that help define the control of access IT systems and data. Development of an IGA service successfully requires an investment of time, thought, and discussion, and the determination of precisely what is needed to create a service that effectively facilitates the business transformation of an organization. The more fine-tuned IGA of the future depends on having a good degree of automated control, access restriction, and security – helping enterprises manage identity and access life cycles across multiple systems within a complex IT landscape while leading to increased business productivity and lower ongoing expenses of user administration.
The dynamism surrounding the IGA market has stepped up the activities in C-suites, with executives brainstorming over services that would be the most appropriate and valuable to them, besides being agile enough to suit the ever-changing cyber threat landscape.
