IAM Contributions to Data Protection and Cyber Security
The main benefits of identity and access management revolve around data protection and cyber security. Around 80% of all data breaches occur as a result of weak authentication and stolen passwords. With an IAM system and best practices for access management, companies can minimize cybersecurity risks.
A notable percentage of breaches are also caused by insider threats. IAM is able to mitigate these threats by limiting user access and making sure that additional privileges are only given under strict monitoring.
Modern IAM solutions are built with risk-based authentication, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. These technologies allow IAM solutions to better identify and resolve suspicious activities. With more advanced technologies, IAM solutions also help businesses move away from passwords to biometric and multi-factor authentication.
