The rise in remote-work has accelerated the need for organizations to change how they do business. One of the biggest challenges they face is having visibility in securing the business without compromising workforce productivity and user experience. They also face regulatory compliance pressures, with 66% of organizations expecting to spend more in this area.
IGA is the branch of identity and access management that deals with making appropriate access decisions. It allows your company to embrace the benefits of hyper-connectivity while ensuring that only the right people have access to the right things at the right times. When it’s done right, IGA makes security easier and gives you valuable insights about employee activity and needs.
The digital workplace brings constant change, innovation, and technology updates. In this new work environment, employees must be agile and innovative to meet customer expectations for a superior experience, and organizations must empower employees to make the right decisions and find new business opportunities.
The challenge for organizations is to attract and retain the right people with the right skills for the digital workplace—and give them the right digital tools to boost their productivity.
The benefits of moving to a digital workplace far outweigh the costs. These benefits include attracting the best talent; increasing employee productivity, satisfaction, and retention; and using cutting-edge communications tools. For the organization, the digital workplace breaks down silos and other barriers to employee productivity. At the same time, digital transformation brings more significant information security challenges, such as increased vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit.
The right identity governance and administration (IGA) solution can help an organization implement a zero-trust framework to enable the digital workplace. IGA bolsters the zero-trust security model by managing access based on profiles of users, devices, and services. It provides visibility into user identity and privileges, and it controls access to apps and data, thereby minimizing damage from attacks.
IGA also provides visibility into cloud-based applications. An IGA solution can automate provisioning and deprovisioning for the joiner, mover, and leaver scenarios. The joiner scenario is when the employee is first recruited, the mover is when the employee moves to another position within the company, and the leaver is when the employee leaves the company. By automating the process for each scenario, organizations can avoid mistakes often caused by manual processes. These mistakes can lead to additional costs as well as security breaches.
IGA also provides a role-based access policy. The access granted is based on the role that the employee performs in the organization. He or she is only allowed the access required by that role. When the employee changes roles, the access changes accordingly.
