In the post-COVID-19 era, identity and access management (IAM) technology will become more important than ever. As per the survey conducted by HID global, one-third of respondents expect the future of work to be a hybrid arrangement of office, onsite, and remote working. In order to facilitate working from anywhere, many businesses have already started migrating to the cloud. However, in many cases, sometimes users were over-provisioned during migration and more access than necessary was granted to users. Therefore, in order to maintain secure digital infrastructure in the post-COVID era, it is essential for businesses to withdraw or manage these unwanted privileges. To overcome such exposures and security challenges, implementing a combination of identity governance and privileged access management is an important next step. 

Implementing a Workforce IAM framework within the digital infrastructure of your business can help to: 

  • control and manage employee identities and access
  • formulate policies across IT infrastructures to protect enterprises from unauthorised and potentially harmful security breaches.
  • connect employees to internal systems and applications while keeping bad actors out 

The solutions comprising an IAM technology include Single Sign-On (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Lifecycle Management (provisioning, de-provisioning), Password Management, Compliance Management, and many more. By employing the principle of privileged access management, workforce identity and access management technology give minimum access rights to employees that are needed to perform their job.
