With millions of transactions occurring online almost every day, business today really occurs without boundaries.
Customers, business partners, vendors and other constituents all need to access your network — or your cloud — to make purchases, find information or use applications. While these new categories of users are essential for maintaining a competitive edge, your organisation also needs to carefully monitor them and grant appropriate, safe access to protected resources. And there are thousands — in many cases, millions — of them.
Their interest and involvement can be good for business. But how do you manage such a number? Manual procedures for identity management — everything from granting access to assets to managing user accounts — are a classic example of processes that simply don't scale.
They can work when the number of users is small. But manual procedures can become a significant burden when numbers reach into the thousands — and impossible when the numbers stretch to millions. Just think about resetting passwords.
