Security isn’t just about defending your infrastructure from the latest threats. It also means controlling who has access to which IT resources and data, making access fast and simple to authorized users, and effectively blocking unauthorized users. It means having a full complement of Identity and Access Management (IAM) capabilities, including user provisioning, single sign-on, web access management, lifecycle governance, and federation. Implementing IAM requires specialized security knowledge and skills; IBM can help.
IBM offers a cloud-based managed service with 50 percent faster implementation compared to traditional on–premise deployment; lower total cost of ownership, with typical savings of 30-60 percent over the first three years of operation; and reduced administrative overhead, allowing businesses to focus on high-value initiatives. As a result, businesses, including large global enterprises, are able to roll out strategic enterprise and customer applications that drive revenue and improve the user experience while reducing risks and lowering costs.
