Identity and access management (IAM)

Identity & Access Management (IAM) is the umbrella term for processes within an organization that deal with the administration and maintenance of user accounts and resources in the network, including managing permissions for users on applications and systems. An identity and access management system enables up-to-date and correct management of user accounts and their access rights. This is mainly authentication and authorization of the user in the network, i.e. determining the identity of the user and the associated access permissions that the user has in network and in applications.
