What is the purpose of Active Directory and Azure AD?

Active Directory and Azure AD provide Identity and Access Management (IAM) which ensures the correct security policies and controls are assigned and enforced during authentication and authorisation.

Why Do You Need IAM?

Identity and Access Management solutions are critical to business function and allows secure access to applications and resources.

What is Identity and Access Management?

Identity and access management (IAM) protects systems by ensuring that the right people in the right jobs (identities) in your organisation have access to the tools they need to complete their tasks. With identity and access management solutions, your organisation can manage a wide range of identities, including people, software, and hardware.

Does IAM Improve Regulatory Compliance?

Security is influenced by law, regulation, and contracts. Data security is enforced through data protection rules such as Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, the United States’ HIPPA, and the United Kingdom’s Sarbanes-Oxley Act. With an IAM solution, your users and organisation can ensure that the highest levels of security, traceability and administrative transparency are routine in day-to-day operations.
