Identity Lifecycle Management
What is Identity lifecycle management?
Identity lifecycle management is the process of managing user identities and their related access privileges to the network, applications, systems, and data. It spans the entire span of a user’s need to access these systems and resources from onboarding to deprovisioning or removal. It is done through a combination of technologies and business processes.
What can we use Identity lifecycle management for?
Identity lifecycle management helps enterprises overcome the challenges to managing large user bases, including inefficient, manual processes to onboard users, manage privileges, and deactivating unused accounts. Many enterprises do all this work manually, so an identity lifecycle management process can automate much of this work and reduce any errors. It improves employee productivity by efficiently giving new users access to the systems and resources they need to work. It increases enterprise IT security by granting and revoking access as appropriate, freeing IT staff to focus on higher-value tasks and functions.
