Enterprise Identity and Access Management (IAM) is defined as a set of processes and technologies to effectively and consistently manage modest numbers of users and entitlements across multiple systems. In this definition, there are typically significantly fewer than a million users, but users typically have access to multiple systems and applications.
Typical enterprise identity and access management scenarios include:
- Password synchronization and self-service password reset.
- Identity and access management (IAM), including identity synchronization, auto-provisioning and automatic access deactivation, self-service access requests, approvals workflow and consolidated reporting.
- Enterprise single sign-on -- automatically filling login prompts on client applications.
- Web single sign-on -- consolidating authentication and authorization processes across multiple web applications.
