The Advantages of Identity and Access Management in the Era of Digital Transformation

Digital transformation refers to different thinking, innovation and change of the current business models. This is possible by building up a digital strategy which is able to improve the experience of your organization’s employees, customers, suppliers, and partners. For the establishment of the new business and digital strategies, organizations need a strong IT infrastructure that supports all the upcoming changes with agility, productivity and security.

In the last several years a lot of organizations started their digital transformation, using Identity and Access Management technology. It ensures not only a safe and successful digital journey, but at the same time brings successful customer and employee experience.

Why IAM?

Identity Management plays a central role in the digital transformation, including all new business models, applications and ecosystems it supports. Identity Management provides the secure, flexible and adaptive IT infrastructure that every company, government agency or university strives to achieve. It helps to increase customer engagement through new digital channels, to streamline your business operations and to protect data privacy, and security to keep stable your reputation and finances.

According to Gartner, IAM is the security discipline that enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times for the right reasons. Therefore, the lack of a proper IAM process in place, puts the data at risk and this situation may lead to regulatory non-compliance or even worse – a data breach event. IAM addresses the need to ensure appropriate access to resources across increasingly heterogeneous technology environments, and to meet all rigorous compliance requirements. This security practice is a crucial measure for any enterprise. It is increasingly business-aligned, and it requires business skills, not just technical expertise.

Talking about transformation in the digital era, it is crucial for the companies to develop long-term technology infrastructure plans that inform how identities are established, maintained, secured, leveraged by applications and distributed within and out of an organization. That means that the major IAM themes in the enterprise’s strategy should include Privileged Access Management, Identity and the Internet of Things, Cloud-based IAM, Identity Governance and Customer IAM.

Which are the main IAM advantages in the digital transformation?

  • Ability to manage digital identity for accessing information and resources:

Identity and Access Management solutions provide the ability to manage digital identity for accessing information and resources. That means that they secure content from unauthorized access by injecting authentication layers between the users and the critical apps and data. Protected target resources may include on-premises or SaaS applications and web service APIs across all business scenarios, from business-to-employee (B2E) to B2C. Besides, Identity and Access management solutions support bring-your-own-device (BYOD), through the use of social identity integration needed for registration, account linking and user authentication.

  • Ability to quickly enable access to resources and applications:

According to our partner, IBM, IAM technology quickly enable access to resources and applications, whether in the cloud, on premises, or in a hybrid cloud. Whether you’re providing access to partner, customer or employee-facing applications, you’ll be able to offer the seamless experience your users expect.

  • Ability to simplify activities:

Creating an identity-focused digital transformation strategy means choosing the right technologies that enable internal or external users to streamline actions, duties, or processes. When you create a strategy intending to enable users, you need to focus on which identities need access to the technology, how they use the technology, what resources they need and most important – how to control their access to prevent unauthorized access.

You are on the right way if your strategies closely align with the purpose of an IAM program.  IAM and IGA (Identity Governance and Administration) programs define who, what, where, when, how, and why of technology access. When composing your enterprise digital transformation strategy based on an identity management program, you are ready to successfully manage the data privacy and security risks.

  • Ability to enable digital interaction

Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) is a whole emerging area in the IAM. The increased number of sophisticated consumers need more simplified digital interactions which helps them to easily build up a better and deeper relation with brands. Furthermore, CIAM technologies help drive revenue growth by leveraging identity data to acquire and retain customers.

As mentioned above, IAM is a critical element of the digital transformation which makes it substantial for protecting sensitive business data and systems. When implemented well, IAM provides confidence that only authorized and authenticated users are able to interact with the systems and data they need to seamlessly do their job. Effective IAM solutions include Access Management – a solution that streamlines and manages multiple accesses, as well as Identity Governance and Administration – a solution that helps you monitor and govern the access.

How IAM Ensures Secure Access to Information Across Your Enterprise

To meet the challenges of today’s world, competitive companies need to increase their business agility in a secure environment and need to enforce the performance of their IT infrastructure. With the development of the business, enterprises now require new methods to manage secure access to information and applications across multiple systems, delivering on-line services to employee, customer and suppliers without compromising security. Companies must be able to trust the identities of users requiring access and easily administer user identities in a cost-effective way. That’s why it is important how they manage all the identities that access information across the enterprise (from employees and customers to trading partners), how they keep all interactions compliant and secure regardless of access channel, including personal devices.

More and more enterprises are undertaking significant digital transformation initiatives to integrate more applications and automate processes in a bid to increase productivity and the pace of innovation. These initiatives frequently involve the integration of information technology with operational technology, even bridging security domains, through direct integration with value chain partners. Digital transformation initiatives deliver significant value, but potentially put more resources at risk and increase the enterprise security threat surface.

Managing external identities, determining who should have access to what resources, and validating and auditing access requests to key resources across channels creates significant administrative overhead for the enterprise. The inherent risk in granting access to mission-critical resources to people and organizations outside the enterprise’s control is compounded by: lack of visibility into an external organization’s hierarchy to validate user requests for access to resources, inability to identify orphan accounts, audit whether users are still active at an organization and still need access to resources, and compromised accounts

The solution for all these business challenges and risks is Identity and Access Management (IAM). It is developed, based on the users and access rights management through an integrated, efficient and centralized infrastructure. This concept combines business processes, policies and technologies that enable companies to provide secure access to any resource, efficiently control this access, respond faster to changing relationships, and protect confidential information from unauthorized users.

Beyond the most basic function of directory services that maintain the metadata associated with an identity, IAM covers two main functions: Authentication and Authorisation.

How does PATECCO IAM solution enable you to manage your most critical identity and access management challenges?

PATECCO offers a robust set of IAM capabilities. The solution enables enterprises to centrally manage the entire identity lifecycle of their internal and external users, as well as their access to critical resources across the enterprise. The IAM platform provides a comprehensive set of capabilities to connect and manage the people, systems, processes, and things that span the extended enterprise. PATECCO IAM solution addresses identity and access management challenges in three key areas:

1. Onboarding and provisioning

 Onboarding and provisioning is a business problem, which deals with the policies, rules, technology, and user experience pertaining to creating and managing user accounts. Enterprises need robust approval-based access requests, the ability to audit access grants, and the ability to provide answers to the questions of who has what, why, and for how long?

 2. Authentication and access

With network security perimeters disappearing and data flowing freely within and between companies, identity has become the crucial point to help manage, control, and govern access to data, applications, and cloud resources. This requires the enterprise to master non-core capabilities such as single sign-on, password management, advanced authentication, role-based access control, and directory services integration.

 3. Privacy and security

The rise in awareness about compliance management—as well as the growing list of regulations on the matter such as GDPR in Europe—is driving the adoption of IAM solutions for security purposes. Enterprises must prevent sensitive information from being disclosed to unauthorized recipients. They must reduce or eliminate the risk of financial loss, public embarrassment, or legal liability from unauthorized disclosure of sensitive or critical information. PATECCO solution for IAM mitigates many of the risks inherent in a diverse, globally distributed supply chain. Starting with comprehensive identity and access management capabilities, we can ensure only the right people have access to the most trusted resources when they need them. Adding comprehensive tools for audit and attestation means that the enterprise can easily determine who has access to what resources at any time, as well as how they got access and when they actually accessed the resource.

After describing the IAM capabilities, we can conclude that the more IAM continues to evolve, the more organizations will look to broader, enterprise-based solutions that are adaptable to new usage trends such as mobile and cloud computing. Effective identity and access management processes are able to bring business value to your enterprise — reduced risk, sustaining compliance, improved efficiency and end user experience responding to the changing IT landscape.

How Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Ensure Successful Business Transformation?

As the digital world continues to conquer the physical world, the scope of digital transformation within businesses is constantly increasing. We live in an era of new business models, streamlining operations, and rapid development of new services and products. This kind of transformation is more and more determined by the use of Information and Artificial intelligence, and Machine learning. They not only improve the customer experience, but also change the way companies operate.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are important pillars of many organisations’ digital transformations.  For example, we can now use AI for account management and customer service systems across industries. As a result you get better productivity and scalability.By definition, Artificial Intelligence is “a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behaviour in computers; the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior.”

Basically, AI capabilities allow a computer to analyse huge amounts of information and data to arrive at a “reasoned” conclusion about the subject at hand, simulating the human decision process, often with better decisions being made. On the basis of analysing user behaviour, streaming services can more accurately tailor recommendations and push targeted content with greater opportunity for engagement.

With the advancements in machine learning, Artificial Intelligence is considered as a key driver in digital transformation across a wide range of sectors – banking, insurance, manufacturing, retail, automotive, healthcare and government.

The influence and benefits of AI and Machine Learning 

Several industries already use AI for various applications, getting better and smarter day by day. AI and machine learning benefit organizations by establishing predictive analytics and machine learning capabilities across the entire customer life cycle, by improving data completeness and consistency across back-end systems and by ensuring data quality and regulatory compliance through data governance. All these advantage features lead to reduced costs and boosted efficiency.

Advantages of AI in Banking Sector

According to Forrester report, the customer loyalty is crucial for financial services companies to sustain business growth. Sixty percent of leaders in financial services industry expect to use big data-driven AI to maximize customer value, so that they can improve the potential to upsell and cross-sell to their existing customers. On the other hand, machine learning helps to detect credit card fraud in real time by identifying unusual patterns in individuals’ transactions.

For the last few years, the banking sector has become one of the main adopters of Artificial Intelligence. Most banks and financial institutions implement AI to add more efficiency to their back-office and mitigate security risks. Thanks to AI the banks can offer better customer support by adding virtual assistants to their instant website chatbots, voice response systems, and mobile applications.

Comprehensive digital support is of a great importance for the banks to meet customers’ expectations, so with Artificial Intelligence, they achieve greater precision and accuracy. AI enhances the satisfaction level of the customers by providing abilities for bills payment, cards management, and other support. AI can also detect fraud and improves financial security with advanced fraud prevention tactics. Artificial Intelligence works as a real-time scam solution which subsequently builds more secure environment for the business and the customers.

One of the main advantages of AI is its ability to complete tasks through automation, resulting in better productivity. Based on a machine learning algorithm, AI can quickly consume and process a massive amount of data which brings efficiency to financial services and provides scope for personalized offerings to consumers.

Taking into consideration the above mentioned AI capabilities, all kinds of enterprises should consider incorporating AI into their business models. It’s not necessary to be a large company to take advantage of AI in order to provide better service to your customers – AI can help small and mid-sized businesses, as well. All of them should be involved in the digital transformation and to establish new structures, new technologies and most of all – a new mindset in relation to the customer.

Why APIs Are So Valuable in the Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is a great opportunity for the businesses to replace the old models with modernized ones, helping them conquer new global markets. Keeping efficiency, productivity and agility with the help of such digital strategies has become critical for all kinds of organizations. That’s a reason to say that an essential aspect of digital transformation is the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). In this article, we’ll explain the core advantages of APIs which contribute for the better business processes and progress.

What is actually API?

As Gartner says – APIs are the basis of every digital strategy. An API defines in what way the software components interact with one another, what data format is used, allowable usage and other parameters. Two of the most common use cases are data and functionality sharing. For example, OAuth provides websites with a way to encourage users sign-up without making them go through a registration process.

According to Axway, APIs are a simple concept: they connect data to create new digital experiences. Basically, APIs allow you to integrate systems and devices – both internally and externally. This is a key element of any digital transformation. For example: you can reach customers based on their location, collect data to improve your services, and perform real-time updates. You can create new combinations of seemingly incompatible devices, such as water heaters, thermostats, and smart phones, and turn them into brand new products, services, and data sources. Those appliances by themselves do not communicate, and this this is where APIs act as the mechanism to facilitate data interactions.

The role of API in the Digital transformation:

APIs are critical to any digital transformation. They can change the entire process of creation new business models. By using APIs there is much more agile development process. Besides, there is more speed, more flexibility and more backend services. What’s important for a business is not simply having a good idea. What is critical, is how agilely the company can adapt that service to changing consumer preferences. A new service can change as it is being developed, and it can change even after it is in the market, thanks to APIs.

We like to talk about APIs in plural, because you can do great things when you integrate several. With connected APIs, you can automate processes, and reduce labour intensive which results in speed and convenience.

The great thing about APIs is that they can be published to a community of external developers. Public transportation companies, for example, can share their schedules with external parties (Google Maps, and many others) through an API, so that their own riders are ultimately better served. Technically, this information can be combined with other information that is accessible through APIs, about restaurants, weather, sport events, and museums to create entirely new value added services. Security is an important consideration, as not everybody and everything should be able to access all APIs. Thanks to solid Identity and Access policies, your enterprise internal systems and processes can be fully safe and secure.

When connected to devices, APIs can produce valuable data streams that you want to be stored, in a way that they are easily accessible and transportable. Storing your data in the cloud will relieve your staff from having to manage basic infrastructure.

The use of API also creates seamless user experience for your customers. It makes it possible for your services to be easily accessible on channels that your customers usually interact with, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, chatbots, virtual reality or anything with an interface. The API management solution makes your APIs highly visible and consumable and allows your customers to access your services anywhere and at any time.

The success of the digital transformation depends on continuous evolution. And the driving mechanism behind the continuous change is using a smart API strategy. Since software drives the progress of every business, APIs have become both engines of innovation and the source of competitive advantage, as well. They enable the business to offer new products, better customer experiences, and more efficient business processes.

If you are curious to get to know about a certain API use case, check out PATECCO previous article about FIM Query Service.

PATECCO Developed FIM Query Service Platform

PATECCO, which is specialized in Identity and Access Management consulting, developed a new platform – FIM Query Service, integrated with CA API Management tool. It provides the capabilities you need to bring systems together, to protect these integrated solutions, enhance customer experience, and unlock new business opportunities in the digital transformation.

FIM Query Service easily allows connectivity to a different source of information. That source could use the benefit of cache for recurring searches like Active Directory all information available to standard Xpath. Besides, the new tool provides a single entry point to the whole environment and this allows easy connectivity from third-party clients based on REST standard.

FIM Query Services Platform could be easily secured with third-party security gateways, resulting in better logging and improved GDPR compatibility.

In the integration processCA API Gateway toolacts as policy-driven identity and security enforcement points that can be implemented both in the enterprise and in the cloud to address a broad range of behind–the–firewall, SOA, B2B, API management and cloud security challenges.

The tool is designed to address multi-domain issues, especially the need to maintain trust when exchanging information with third parties. It also acts as Policy Enforcement Points (PEPs) located in the enterprise, allowing organizations to layer on key control and visibility capabilities for all third party interactions.

The integrated CA API Gateway provides OAUTH 2.0 to Windows Authentication for the production environment, so the services should be security compliant to the industry standards. In this way it ensures unparalleled flexibility in defining and enforcing identity-driven security policies, leveraging SSO session cookies, Kerberos tickets, SAML assertions and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).

An advantage of the new platform is that it helps ensure enterprise application and infrastructure services are protected against malicious attacks or accidental damage due to poorly structured data. The tool provides not only protocol mediation and efficient data transformation, but also more traditional application-layer functionality such as caching and traffic throttling.

The other benefit of FIM Query Service is that it limits the number of no standard Clients to the database. This means that there is a lower number of locks for the tables resulting in better response time. The information, which is already searched, is available immediately from the cache.

The next advantage of FIM Query Service is that it phase out the lower level SQL language and replace it with standardizing REST based XPath. The verification and conversion between XPath and SQL are done by approved Microsoft Service and eliminates the need for knowing the internal database structure. This leads to future speedier updates.

PATECCO believes that APIs are the building blocks of digital transformation. Being successful today and asserting oneself on the market, requires the companies in every industry to make a fundamental change. This transformation process is not just about gradually introducing improvements, but also about developing core businesses to meet the needs of today’s connected world.

Challenges and Benefits of Access Governance

Many enterprises deploying Identity Management Solutions believe that this will suffice for access governance. The truth is that an identity management solution is only a point solution and access governance requires something more complex – monitoring of the dynamic access rights of multiple users to myriad applications. On one hand, Identity management solution allows IT to automate identity management and access control. On the other hand, an access governance system provides a high-level business overview of access requests, compliance processes, and in what way the risk management strategy ties into user roles and responsibilities. This means that access governance cannot work without identity management and at the same time facilitates advancements.

Today’s compound regulations make compliance an essential consideration. While providing the data trail required for audits and compliance requirements, it’s important at the same time to track, audit, and control what individual employees have access to. More and more companies recognise the need for access governance caused by multiple factors and challenges. This is for example increasingly complex regulations that demand strict adherence, the escalating scale and frequency of cyber attacks, adoption of the cloud which poses a concern about monitor which employees access what data, using which device!

How access governance system governs access rights?

Assigning specific rights to employees for accessing only what they need to ful­l their job roles and responsibilities, efficiently and in a secure manner.

Aggregating data on user accounts that have access to the different applications, databases, data centres, network devices, etc., together a single and easy-to-manage view into access rights and accounts on all systems.

Implementing strong security controls

What benefits does Identity Governance bring to the business?

Identity governance system enables the regulation and control of access in an efficient, systematic, and continuous manner.

Identity Governance grants a comprehensive view of roles and privileges within each department of the company. This results in deep insight into how access is used across the organization by different users.

An access governance system also positively impacts the certification process. Certification and recertification requirements are reduced and users can be certified on an ad-hoc basis, at any point in time.

Access governance facilitates collaborative and analytics-based decision-making, based on the data aggregated across users and departments.

Access Governance goes well beyond access recertification, role management and analytics. Strong capabilities for access request management, access analytics, and advanced direct or indirect capabilities of provisioning changes back are more often than not mandatory features. Increasingly, improved integration with Privilege Management tools or User Activity Monitoring solutions are being developed as a key focus area for many organizations.

PATECCO enables Digital Transformation for enterprises by delivering seamless customer experience, business efficiency and actionable insights through an integrated set of IAM, Governance Risk and Compliance and Cloud technologies.

Secure Digital Transformation with Identity and Access Management

Digital transformation comes down to using technology and data to drive innovation and better business outcomes. With regard to cyber security, digital transformation creates new requirements and new risks, as well. Cyber security therefore needs to be addressed through a comprehensive approach that allows users to benefit from these new services in total confidence, while ensuring effective IT risk management for the company.

Digital transition has its great influence on security at all stages of project implementation. The information system is much more open, data is unstructured and arriving in greater volumes.  Users become more diverse and increased, along with the advance of new technologies. All these changes impose adopting comprehensive approaches.

The Role of Identity and Access Management in the Enterprise

Employees, partners and customers need fast provisioning, successful management of application and data privileges, and the ability to shut off access when it is no longer needed. One of the business solutions for these goals, is  Identity and Access Management. It encompasses the entire enterprise, including all business units, individual locations, systems, access points, business partners and customers.

Organisations implement Identity and Access Management on per a system and application basis through the creation of user accounts and administering file permissions. IAM provides tools which are capable of enhancing the authentication systems by managing access to them more efficiently. This is where identity governance comes up to manage who has access to what, who should have access to what, and how that access is being used.

IAM architecture framework

IAM encompasses a broad range of enterprise tools and technologies within a distinct architecture supporting a set of interrelated processes. The IAM architecture framework consists of three core areas:

Directory services: they store identity and its attribute data configuration information, and policies. Directory technology provides an object-oriented, dynamically configurable repository with standards for access, security and information management. Directories are designed for fast response times to queries as the identity information is generally queried more often than it is updated.

Identity Provisioning and Administration: provides identity lifecycle management services, such as ID provisioning/de-provisioning, password management, approval-workflows.

Access Management: it refers to defining and evaluating security policies related to authentication, authorisation, auditing and privacy.  The access management tools certainly have administration capabilities, but their main focus is on authorisation. Access management tools enforce access control policies across heterogeneous environments. It includes technologies to authenticate and provide seamless access to organisation’s application estate. Federation is an approach to authenticate users across multiple sites within organisation.

In general, IAM systems allow organisations to introduce substantial improvements to security controls, achieve efficiency and budget savings, maintain data quality and, importantly, meet obligations to industry and regulatory compliance requirements. 43.9% of the organizations indicate that IAM is strategic, according to Kuppingercole research. That means that Identity and Access Management is one of the top business goals that companies plan to achieve through digital transformation.

PATECCO recommends the organizations to clearly define their Digital Transformation and to communicate it, to implement a comprehensive IAM, beyond Provisioning, with a focus on Access Governance and Privilege Management, to extend their IAM to support customers and consumers and to be compliant with EU GDPR at all levels.
