What is Identity and Access Management?
Identity & Access Management (IAM) is a process that grants or denies employees and others authorization to secure systems. IAM addresses the need to meet rigorous compliance requirements and ensure appropriate access to mission-critical resources. An IAM system verifies user access requests and grants or denies permissions based on a rigorous framework laid out by a data governance or IT administrator.
