IAM - Identity and Access Management

Identity and access management (IAM) is a framework for business processes that facilitates the management of electronic or digital identities. The framework includes the organizational policies for managing digital identity as well as the technologies needed to support identity management. Traditional IAM is focused on managing digital identities of the workforce, and their access to corporate computer resources. Customer IAM (CIAM) is designed to manage the identities of consumers and their access to a company’s digital facing properties.
