Organizations must establish better control of their users by gaining a deeper understanding of user identities, roles and responsibilities. They also need to implement a quick and cost-effective easy way to manage and control user access to information resources, without requiring the extensive development efforts associated with traditional Identity Management solutions.
While all companies, regardless of size, need to address these trends, midmarket enterprises face additional challenges since many have limited IT legacy infrastructures and many lack expertise in information security. Because of these limitations, many midmarket companies are looking to SaaS offerings to address IT initiatives such as Identity and Access Management.
“Software-as-a-Service offerings are very attractive to midsize companies that are looking to optimize IT initiatives without adding expensive technology resources and infrastructure,” said Scott Crawford, Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. "Cloud-based Identity and Access Management solutions, such as Aveksa’s MyAccessLive, provide these companies an easy and affordable way to gain enterprise-wide control over who has access to their application and data resources.”
MyAccessLive enables mid-sized organizations to give their users access to information resources while providing visibility into who has access to what resources and ensuring that access is appropriate and based on users’ job responsibilities.
“While midmarket companies do not face the complexities of managing IT access for tens of thousands of end users and hundreds of thousands of user entitlements, they still need to efficiently ensure that everyone using applications has the appropriate level of access,” said Deepak Taneja, Chief Technology Officer, Aveksa. “MyAccessLive provides smaller enterprises with an easy-to-use cloud-based solution to quickly and cost-effectively manage and control access to IT applications and data for all of their users.”
