Why is Identity and Access Management so challenging?
In order to implement a complete Identity and Access Management solution, you need to have an understanding about every distributed system, application, platform, and how each manages entitlements. And that’s just step 1!
Lack of Coverage
Firms onboard half of their applications and platforms into IAM workflows.
Poor Data Quality
70% of ownership data, inventory and associated metadata is inaccurate.
Only 20% of necessary analytics are fed into IAM systems in an automated fashion.

Improved Identity and Access Management
It’s very simple and a basic tenet of IT security: Bad data in equals bad data out. Understanding the effective permissions and access of the users is critical and, by no means, a simple task.
