7-Key-Strategies-for-Strengthening-Identity-Management (1)

The user life cycle should be managed from a centralized perspective, and user self-service should be made available both inside and outside of the enterprise. This is the ideal solution to address the identity management difficulties that most organizations encounter.

IT administrators benefit from integrated identity management systems’ assistance in reducing risks, managing user administration requirements, and adjusting to changing laws.

With the correct requirements, identity management systems can aid businesses in realizing opportunities that benefit partners, consumers, and employees alike.  Here are some critical strategies for strengthening Identity management-

User Provisioning

With user provisioning, businesses can handle their identity management by encompassing numerous facilities such as user types, systems, applications, business resources access, user accounts creation, updates, etc.

With user provisioning, businesses can access proper resources to users at a low cost, managing the work cycle of users comprising processes like account creation on different systems, extending access to external services, and temporarily suspending access or permanently revoking accounts.

In order to strengthen identity management, businesses are required to employ effective user provisioning, which helps minimize security risks, consisting of weak passwords, and reduces user productivity obstacles.

By this, companies can also centralize identity management capabilities and automation via role-based account creation and workflow access rights to business resources.

User Identity Management

Business identity management depends on different user types as per their business functions- employees, consumers, vendors, partners, etc., having their respective online roles that can be managed efficiently to reduce risks and lower business costs.

Single-user identity management is more convenient than multiple identities for a single user as their needs can be managed easily, letting businesses serve with quality and increased customer satisfaction.

When an employee joins a specific designation, his/her access permissions to business resources are dynamically updated as per the permissions preset by the IT department. This way, businesses can reduce costs and effectively automate business processes.

Directory Infrastructure

Identity management systems need strong roots that are based on a robust, extensible directory architecture through which enterprises can group information into an easily accessible, hierarchical structure.

This robust architecture helps businesses synchronize, replicate, and link information between information stores in uncomplicated, distributed locations, which is integral to business success.

User Authentication

Businesses can strengthen identity management, validate data, and ensure that interactions between the business and the user remain confidential by putting a rigorous authentication process in place to verify users’ identities. This builds trust between the two parties and allows businesses to validate user identity information.

Single Sign-on

Managing business applications with multiple passwords is a complicated process; therefore, businesses can use single sign-on that helps IT departments by offering one interface to manage various systems.

This way, identity management can be processed with web-based businesses, as it provides different access points to systems, letting users connect through the internet.


Businesses can strengthen their identity management by applying self-administration, which decreases the overheads and increases user productivity by delegating management to the user.

As resetting passwords is expensive, if users get access to reset their own forgotten passwords, it can help business operations, reduce the IT department’s workload, and increase user productivity.

Account Mobility

User-account mobility is significant for identity management, as many organizations operate remotely, especially after the COVID-19 outbreak. This makes it more crucial for the business to make the user identity management to be more flexible.

For the purpose of integrating with different business environments and supporting future Web services, the identity management infrastructure must also be open and flexible. A user will be able to securely browse various websites using the same user identity because of web services security.

Acquiring an identity management system that handles the seven aforesaid behaviors and functions in a future-proof environment will not only increase the effectiveness of identity management but will also make it possible for company operations to run more smoothly.

Businesses will then be on the road to better growth, employee productivity, and customer loyalty.
