Identity & Access Management (IAM)

A new standard for secure access and lifecycle management

Secure Remote Work.
Streamline Hypergrowth.

2020 has introduced the concept of predominantly-remote work to almost every office-based business around the globe. These employees mostly use their public or home internet connection to access the company’s business applications – which presents an increased risk of account takeovers by cybercriminals, and other insider threats. Therefore, no security stack – or Zero Trust strategy – can go without authenticating employee interactions with business applications anytime, from anywhere. 

The obvious basics of IAM are SSO and adaptive MFA, to enforce authentication with minimum friction throughout the workday. But today’s IAM goes way beyond that, with passwordless authentication and automated provisioning throughout the employee’s entire lifecycle. This means large-scale recruitments with no hassle to IT or HR teams, and effortlessly mainaining least-privilege upon offboarding and role changes.

How IAM Amplifies Security & Business

Your ideal solution integrates with most of your business applications using SAML or SWA, and offers API-based integrations for the rest. Syncing with employee directories (AD, LDAP, HR systems, G Suite, Office365 etc.) is crucial for timely granting and revoking of permissions.

Next-Gen MFA & SSO

Next-Gen MFA & SSO

SSO becomes truly impactful when pre-including all applications used for daily work. Smart MFA is only triggered upon anomalous behavior. Passwordless authentication converges the two, providing a 1-time, auto-generated password sent to the user’s device.

Employee Lifecycle Automation

Employee Lifecycle Automation

Enable IT teams to implement workflow-like logics, triggered by changes in employee directories. This will allow permission-related procedures to automatically roll out upon onboarding, role changes, or offboarding.

Compliance

Compliance

An enforceable security policy based on zero-trust and least-privilege principles can support the organization’s compliance with common security standards, which is mandatory in IPO or M&A scenarios.

Challenges Answered

Controlling User Access

Controlling who has access to which applications becomes a real challenge when users can get access from any browser, from any place, at any time As Cloud apps have inגdependent user stores that are not integrated with on-premises directories, users have to remember more passwords, and IT has to manage multiple accounts and map users between directories and cloud applications. This is typically a manual process, and it can get messy fast. This situation is exacerbated with the cloud as IT is often not involved in the purchasing process. GlobalDots introduces IAM solutions that let IT take back control, while simultaneously adding a critical layer of security and ease of use. It creates a directory-based employee system of record so IT can easily view and manage user data.

Password Fatigue

Visit any organization that has adopted a reasonable number of cloud apps and you will find people suffering from password fatigue. Not only must users remember a constantly changing set of passwords, but each cloud app has different password requirements. To lessen the burden, people resort to obvious passwords, sticky notes, and spreadsheets. They all but issue an invitation to an outsider seeking to breach the network. Luckily, password fatigue has an easy cure: Single Sign-On (SSO) lets users access any app with a single set of credentials. Passwordless authentication means this set is constantly and automatically changing, with absolutely no hassle to the user.

Collaborative Administration

Each cloud application has a unique administration model. This can create friction between the business, which needs to customize and manage the app to respond to changing needs, and IT, which is responsible for identity and access management across the entire organization. We solve this problem by letting IT manage users, apps and devices from a single, integrated platform. Meanwhile, the business gets the control they need.

Managing ROI and Compliance

To calculate the ROI of cloud apps, IT must understand how the apps are actually being used, against paid-for capacities. In addition, depending on the industry and circumstance, IT must constantly monitor and control which users have access to certain cloud applications in order to comply with governmental regulations. GlobalDots introduces IAM solutions that make usage tracking easy, and also puts apps and data behind a compliance wall.
