Identity management plays an important part in our everyday lives. It uses all the different pieces of information we have about our users and systems to grant access to tools, functions, software or devices. Effective identity management is essential to enterprise security. Keeping identity information secure, reliable and usable is critical to ensuring that enterprise systems are used appropriately and that sensitive information is protected.
Companies looking to simplify authentication need to decide how their users can access their resources securely - both on location and remotely – and are coming up with creative ways whether it be via fingerprinting, facial recognition, passwords or keycards.
