Benefits of IAM tools

Dynamic companies have special security requirements

Progressive networking across company boundaries, digitized processes, organizational changes with changing responsibilities, company acquisitions and trade-offs are typical characteristics of modern and dynamically operating companies.

While IT systems are becoming increasingly complex, the internal and external requirements for compliance, transparency and risk management as well as identity & access management are also increasing.

Changes such as the introduction of cloud systems and their connection to central user and authorization management require hybrid security landscapes that can no longer be implemented with antiquated solutions such as central user administration (CUA). Especially in the SAP environment, there are other challenges that come with the introduction of SAP S/4HANA. For example, how can I fill the system with users and authorizations practically at the push of a button?

Identity management solutions such as SAP Identity Management or One Identity Manager from Quest Software address precisely these challenges.

Trust our expertise from more than 100 successfully completed projects in Identity & Access Management.

What is Identity & Access Management?

Identity & Access Management (IAM) deals with the administration and maintenance of user roles and access rights of individual users to applications and cloud services. This primarily involves authenticating and authorizing users according to their role in the company, i.e., establishing their identity and the associated access rights.

Authentication ensures the actual identity of the user. In the simplest case, this is done using a username and password, but it can also be done using multi-factor authentication or authentication based on biometric characteristics.

After successful authentication, the user must be correctly authorized. This means providing them with exactly the access rights and information they need to perform their work. The roles to which a user is assigned and the authorizations he or she thus has are usually stored in a database or an Identity & Access Management system such as SAP Identity Management (SAP IdM) or One Identity Manager.

Software for Identity & Access Management

Identity & Access Management systems support the IAM process and offer a wide range of functions for automating the assignment of authorizations and for mapping the entire Identity Lifecycle Management – starting with the entry of an employee into the company, through department changes and changes in the area of responsibility, right up to the exit. Ideally, Identity & Access Management communicates as a central unit with all connected systems via so-called IdM connectors.

Established software solutions for Identity & Access Management, such as SAP Identity Management or One Identity Manager, offer options for making the entire Identity Lifecycle Management more effective:

In addition, Identity & Access Management systems ensure complete documentation of the assignment of authorizations and ensure adherence to compliance guidelines such as SoD (Segregation of Duty).


IAM tools provide various benefits

Avert economic damage to the company

A well thought-out and largely automated identity and access management prevents dangers. Role and authorization concepts as well as stored rules and regulations ensure, for example, that SoD (Segregation of Duty) guidelines are adhered to − for example, that an employee who orders a company asset cannot release his own order himself. In this way, identity and access management tools reduce potential misuse and thus prevent damage to the company.

Reduce administrative overhead

Digitalized processes in identity and access management offer considerable potential to simplify and accelerate administrative processes. Intelligently combined with HR management systems, they support the complete employee lifecycle from the time an employee joins the company, through his or her professional development, to the time he or she leaves. When changes are made, the system immediately checks whether new rights in the systems conflict with the applicable compliance guidelines. When an employee leaves the company, the system ensures that no unauthorized access can occur on the cut-off date.

Connectors ensure that your SAP IdM automatically communicates with a large number of connected systems.

Integrate external staff and partners

Identity and access management systems allow access rights to be extended to external partners without compromising security. Processes can thus be mapped across company boundaries through the use of on-premise applications, mobile apps and SaaS solutions. This simplifies collaboration with external partners, increases productivity and ensures higher revenues and profits.

Relieve IT department and helpdesk

Identity and access management systems reduce the processing time of helpdesk calls. Standard processes such as resetting passwords are completed with just one click. Self-services even enable the end user to carry out such processes himself. As a result, not only the processing time for helpdesk tickets is reduced, but also their number.

SAP Identity Management and SAP Access Control

SAP Identity Management (SAP IdM) and SAP Access Control focus on the traceable management and consistent distribution of digital identities throughout their lifecycle – assignment, repeated adjustments, deletion. The solution enables you to flexibly map your individual workflows so that required user accounts, roles and authorizations can be assigned in a rule-based and automated manner. All changes to authorizations and user data are logged in a traceable manner. In this way, SAP Identity Management makes a major contribution when it comes to adhering to legal and internal compliance regulations.

SAP Cloud Identity

The SAP Cloud Identity solutions enable authentication, single sign-on (SSO) and provisioning against SAP cloud systems. SAP Identity Authentication (IAS) can be used to implement all user authentication requirements in cloud system landscapes, while SAP Identity Provisioning (IPS) ensures the integration of on-premise and cloud systems in the identity lifecycle. SAP Cloud Identity Access Governance (IAG) provides the ability to manage workflows, risk checks and emergency access. Especially in hybrid system landscapes and in the communication between on-premise and cloud systems, the products of SAP Cloud Identity create a complete integration

SAP Single Sign-On

During their daily work, your employees alternately use different applications, each of which requires them to authenticate themselves with their own access data. This is not very user-friendly and can also pose a real security risk. SAP Single Sign-On (SSO) solves this problem for you. The solution provides you with a central management of access data to which you can connect all your systems − SAP and non-SAP applications as well as mobile devices of all kinds. Thus, each user only needs to remember one user ID with which he or she can log on once for all applications.
