Importance of Identity and Access Management

Managing user logins and passwords is an increasingly complex endeavor that poses major risks for businesses. Here are a few important factors to consider when deciding whether to implement IDaaS:

User Identities

The average user today has up to 80 passwords, according to NordPass. Most of these passwords won’t be discrete and are likely used across multiple services, which weakens an organization’s security.

Threat Landscape

The amount of user identities that must be managed by the IT department directly correlates to the threat landscape. The more logins and passwords that users maintain the greater the risk—especially as employees come and go.

Breaches

Nearly 80% of data breaches are caused by human error, and a significant portion of breaches involve user credentials, often affecting multiple platforms.

Mobility

As users continue to rely more and more on mobile devices, identity management becomes increasingly complex.

Retake Control with Identity as a Service

Our IDaaS solution focuses on user experience and helps manage user logins and passwords across complex interconnected environments.

Implementation of Identity and Access Management

Preventing these attacks comes down to more than password enforcement, which is why Identity as a Service is so crucial. The goal of IDaaS is three-fold:

  1. To ensure users authenticating are who they say they are.
  2. To grant users access to applications, files and resources through a single and secure set of credentials.
  3. Ensure users have access across complex environments.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

One of the most common ways identity is managed is through MFA. This method secures sensitive information and fully safeguards devices via token-based protection. Typically, two or more methods of identification are required to be considered two-factor authentication. These methods involve:

 

  • Something you know (such as a password)
  • Something you have (such as a smart card or mobile device)
  • Something you are (such as a fingerprint or other biometric method)

Single Sign On (SSO)

SSO allows the user to use one username and password to access multiple applications. Benefits of this approach include:

 

  • Users manage fewer passwords
  • Reduces external threats
  • Centralizes the management of passwords and policies
  • Reduces the number of password-related IT issues

SSO should always be used in conjunction with MFA to avoid security breaches.

Additional Benefits

  • Sync with on-premises and writeback capabilities
  • Sync with Cox Business Cloud Solutions
  • Sync with other cloud-based solutions
