Identity Management

Identity Management simplifies and tightens security by allowing staff to use the same passwords for their local computers and a range of critical web services, reducing the number of passwords they need to keep track of and streamlining the process of hiring and termination. It uses secure bindings to reduce room for errors and close security gaps without dependence on a physical office.

Key Benefits:

  • Allows managing a single user directory across systems reliably and safely from one secure service.
  • Simplifies the process of on-boarding and off-boarding new hires, and allows those processes to be logged.
  • Capture of authentication events. (Details of user access to specific systems and platforms are centrally logged.)
  • Centralization and simplification of administration and access for integrated external services. 
  • Secure, two-factor authentication to key systems and services beyond Office 365 and Google Workspace.
  • Control of local Mac or Windows user accounts on all company computers.
