Top 10 Identity Governance and Administration Consulting/Services Companies - 2020
The Access and Adoption principle maps across a variety of technological, social, and geopolitical issues. At the enterprise level, Access and Adoption maps to fraud prevention by protecting business integrity and promoting security over digital communications and infrastructures. Cloud migration strategies increase data access and security risks. In complex cloud infrastructures, organizations often struggle to maintain compliance with SOD policies. Ultimately, the lack of governance places the organization at risk for fraud. For example, providing the same employee access to both accounts receivable and accounts payable increases the potential for embezzlement. Multi-cloud infrastructures increase this risk since each cloud environment uses its own set of definitions and each application within a cloud environment adds another layer of user definitions, all of which require individual monitoring to prove identity governance.
As the enterprise scales, so scales its cloud, and each new access point creates a new risk. Access to these cloud infrastructures requires that organizations adopt equally scalable IGA solutions that enable the access management programs necessary to mitigate risk. The final Globalization 4.0 principle of Digital Economy and Society is informed agile governance.
IGA combines entitlement discovery, decision-making processes, access review and certification with identity lifecycle and role management. IGA operates in the intersection of business process management and access automation allowing people and systems communicate with each other, fulfilling day-to-day operational needs. It focuses on the process and operational components of Identity and Access Management. IGA is focused on addressing issues related to the mapping of business objectives to policies as well as creating a platform for the execution and administration of these policies. IGA is a bridge between the business decision makers and those that administer the technology in support of managing all aspects of governing access.
IGA systems merge identity administration, which addresses administering accounts and credentials, provisioning, and managing entitlements, with identity governance, which addresses the segregation of duties, role management, logging, and analytics and reporting. IGA systems provide additional functionality beyond standard Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems. In particular, they help organizations meet compliance requirements and enable them to audit access for compliance reporting. They also automate workflows for tasks such as access approvals and provisioning/de-provisioning.
