Choosing the Right Identity Management Solution
Posted: Jul 21, 2021 | Reading Time: 2 Minutes
The goal is a secure technology environment, however along with our technology advancements, there has also come the advancement of cyber-attacks. For healthcare and business organizations it is vital that client and patient information be protected from the eyes of those not authorized. Let’s use the hospital environment as an example. Doctors usually have multiple offices in addition to hospital privileges. This means they need access to patients’ files in more than just one location. Identity and access management systems (IAM) typically help to secure one network at a time. With the multiple locations for one doctor it is necessary for the IAM systems to be integrative. Until now, healthcare and business companies needed to have an IT company come in and integrate the IAM service to move fluidly through multiple locations.
Presently, there are many IAM providers that are more advanced and able to secure more than one location. IAM resources provides security by each employee only having one unique qualifier to log on therefore decreasing the risk of any breach of the system. In addition, companies are able to track their employees in more organized way with less opportunity for misinformation. For organizations with multiple locations such as hospitals, doctors offices, treatment centers, business franchises IAM is essential for compliant regulations.
IAM service providers have been able to manage the ever changing technology demands of our healthcare and business worlds. Therefore choosing the best IAM provider is essential to keeping your patient or client’s information secure. How do you know which company to choose? Reliability, adaptability and integration ease for the user. In a nut shell this means you want your IAM provider to be able to be available for your needs. At times these processes can go down and you want as little interference with productivity as possible. In addition to being reliable you want you IAM provider to be able to adjust to change with flexibility. You defiantly don’t want your vendor telling you that they are unable to make changes based upon the rigid structure of the program they are using. Any program that you choose for your security should not leave your users frustrated when using their computer.
