Access certification is the process of validating access rights within systems. This process is mandatory for compliance and security risk management; however, it can be a very daunting process for some organizations with dispersed systems, workforce, and partners which do not have tools, resources, and a centralized identity directory. With access certification, organizations and regulations aim to formally validate users within systems and ensure their access rights are appropriate.
Organizations face many multi-faceted challenges when it comes to identity and access management. For some, access to enterprise resources must be managed for many global internal and external parties. For others, the overarching challenge is compliance with an ever-growing number of regulations around data integrity and privacy, user identification, and transaction tracking. And for many, knowing who has access to which resources can be draining, time consuming, expensive, and difficult yet critical and mandatory.
