Our Identity and Access Management Services

At its heart, Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a business process issue, not a technology problem. Without a clear understanding of the business, security and operational challenges an organization faces for managing, governing and enabling user access, it runs the risk of making poor or even disastrous decisions in identity and access management programs.

Moreover, the fundamental changes in enterprise IT infrastructures have rendered older security models obsolete. Location-based security strategies are no longer effective when the location of apps, users, data and devices are unpredictable.

When accessing networks and resources, the user is the common denominator. Therefore, placing identity at the center of a security framework (e.g., zero trust) becomes the only effective construct upon which to model corporate security policies. Without identifying the user, no other system access control or security matters. Only by identifying the user can we explicitly verify all elements of access regarding of the location of the resources being accessed or the accessing agent.

Companies that tackle IAM effectively enjoy the benefits of empowered and trusted users who can connect to sensitive resources, no matter where they are.

Protiviti approaches IAM from a risk management perspective, which often is different from the approach taken by traditional IT consultants  or system integrators. When IAM focuses on understanding risk appetite and addressing key business risks, it aligns and scales more effectively and ultimately creates more value and is more sustainable for the organization.
