Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) is a framework for managing user identities and access to resources within an organisation. IGA involves the management of user identities, access permissions, and roles, as well as the policies and procedures that govern them.
IGA solutions provide organisations with a range of capabilities, including user provisioning, role management, access certification, and audit and compliance reporting. User provisioning involves the creation, modification, and deletion of user accounts and access permissions. Role management involves defining roles and assigning access permissions to those roles. Access certification involves reviewing and certifying access rights to ensure compliance with organisational policies and regulatory requirements. Audit and compliance reporting involves tracking and reporting on user activity to ensure compliance with regulations and to detect and prevent security incidents.
IGA solutions can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud, and they can be integrated with other security technologies, such as identity and access management, endpoint detection and response, and security information and event management (SIEM) systems.
In summary, IGA is a critical component of an organisation's cybersecurity strategy. By managing user identities and access permissions, organisations can reduce the risk of security breaches, protect sensitive data, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. IGA solutions help to ensure business continuity, protect sensitive data, and maintain the trust of customers and stakeholders.
