What Is Identity Management And How It Affects Business

Identity and Access Management focuses on managing individual principals, authorizations, authentications and privileges within the boundaries of the company and system. The primary goals include:

  • Increase Productivity
  • Increase Security
  • Decrease Downtimes
  • Decrease Costs
  • Decrease Repetitiveness

At Comodo, we understand the definition to be determining what users can do with their devices on the network and under which circumstances they can do them. Most security products on the market today emphasize mobile access and managing it in the corporate system.

How To Use/Run

Because of security reasons, the tools you use for identity and access management should only be run as an application on a server or network appliance. These appliances can be in the cloud or on-premises. The core of the system includes policies that define which users and devices can be on the network and what they can do. The console functionality comes into play and will include reporting, policy definition, alarms, alerts and other requirements.

Our product allows you to set the policies and alarms, so if a user tries accessing resources they aren't permitted to use, you will be notified. Our product also comes with a log to document activities.
