The sudden spike in the number of remote workers during the COVID-19 pandemic reinforces the need for organizations to have stringent security measures and effective identity and access management (IAM) systems in place. As the complexity of identity-related attacks increases, it's crucial for organizations to adapt to the constantly evolving IAM landscape.
Remote working, cloud adoption, bring your own device policies, and other trends define the roadmap for future IAM technologies and systems. Analysts at Gartner have issued five key predictions for identity and access management and fraud detection based on recent challenges faced by organizations.
This white paper explores the Gartner predictions and other IAM trends to help IT leaders gain insight into the technologies that shape the future of IAM solutions. It provides an overview of IAM principles, tools, and systems, and tracks the evolution of IAM systems over the years. Technologies such as the cybersecurity mesh, decentralized identities, identity proofing, and privileged access management are discussed in detail.
