Access management and governance complement identity management. If one handles who you are, the other manages what you can gain admittance to based on who you are.

Give Your Organization the User Lifecycle Management it Deserves
Identity Management is a term used to describe an organization’s internal processes that focus on managing user accounts and corporate network resources, including access rights for organizations, users, applications, and systems. Identity Management ensures regulatory compliance, enables cost savings, and simplifies the lives of your customers, employees and contractors by enhancing their overall digital enterprise experience.
For various enterprise assets, sign-on control is an important part of robust access management. This module protects access to web based services, enterprise application systems and even cloud based platforms as per centrally defined compliance and security policies. Also known as Single Sign On, it permits employees the use of one set of authenticated credentials to gain admittance to multiple portals from multiple devices.
This controls how the sign on credentials presented by an employee are validated and the protocols that are referenced for the authentication. The access management is accomplished once the user’s identity has been established. After authentication, a decision must be made at the access control level. The decision is based on the information available about the user.
This allows an entity like an enterprise to append privilege rights to the identities created and managed by the identity management system. The central system recognizes certain roles based on identity attributes like department, location, seniority and designation and allows the individuals who take on these roles limited or complete access to relevant data sets based on specified entitlements.
This is more stringent and policy based than mere access management. Siaraa Technologies is capable of deploying solutions that take into account pre-defined access and data security policies drafted by a business and create automated compliant workflows for access governance to information, strictly blocking out requests that pose a threat to the integrity or the exclusivity of the data. Access governance is typically more nuanced than access management with sliding rules that reject admittance to authenticated identities if the attributes related to the request go against company policies.
