The Importance of Identity Governance Administration Solutions Within Modern IT Architectural Environments

In this IDC Spotlight paper The Importance of Identity Governance Administration Solutions Within Modern IT Architectural Environments, Jay Bretzmann, Research Vice President at IDC, highlights the changes in identity governance and administration (IGA) by showing how it is no longer just a ‘nice to have’ technology. IGA is now a mission critical program, and organizations are leveraging it beyond traditional compliance ‘check the box’ tool, and more into a proactive tool that can help implement and maintain least privilege through continuous controls.

This new focus on zero trust forces organizations to be vigilant in real time and requires use of role- and attribute-based access controls, policies, and more that rely on artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate granular levels of provisioning and deprovisioning. By removing humans from core IGA tasks like access requests and approvals, certification campaigns, separation of duty (SoD) checks, and other identity lifecycle management tasks, organizations can improve security while making end users more productive and efficient.
