Top 20 IAM solution Companies - 2020

Each passing day is a testimony to the intricacy and scope of modern identity environments to create a secure, flexible, and adaptive IT infrastructure. IT organizations have realized that security definitions are evolving at an alarming speed. Hence, it becomes imperative to upgrade their existing Identity and Access Management (IAM) tools to be at par with advanced security strategies. With cybercriminals implementing artificial intelligence and machine learning in the recent cyber attacks, traditional password protection has become obsolete. To combat the new generation of cybercrimes, IT firms are switching to biometric authentication such as retinal scans, facial recognition, and fingerprints, which proved their efficiency in allowing only authorized personnel in the organization network. Also, privileged access management (PAM), an integral part of IAM, performs stringent authentication verification to allow access to the organizations’ private business accounts.

In fact, as a sub-domain of IAM, customer identity, and access management (CIAM) has gained immense popularity among IT enterprises that enables organizations to improve the overall customer experience. Customer-centric firms are currently incorporating CIAM measures to ensure the security and privacy of the customer identity and profile information using safety mechanisms like single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), consent, and preference management services. Furthermore, blockchain’s role in improving factors such as self-sovereign identity and an audit trail is playing a crucial role in IAM. Blockchain thereby replaces the conventional centralized identity providers. It allows them to store the attributes of the identity of employees in an encrypted form in blocks that can be decrypted when required.

In order to assist the companies in the software realm in shoring up their security measures, we have compiled this issue of CIOReview. In this edition, we have listed the 20 Most Promising Identity and Access Management Solution Providers 2020 and 10 Most Promising Identity and Access Management Consulting/Service Companies 2020 to highlight the companies that can help you escalate your chances of success.
