A recent press release reports, “With the growing volume of access rights to administer across thousands of employees and applications, many large organizations are struggling to manage and secure the fluid nature of user privileges. In response, Accenture has introduced a next-generation digital identity and access management (IAM) capability to help organizations reduce the risk and costs associated with the over-provisioning of accounts tied to a user’s identity. Aggregating data from multiple systems and sources, the patent-pending IAM capability simplifies the complexity of managing and monitoring who has access to what. It improves and increases the accuracy and speed of near real-time updates to user privileges using artificial intelligence and machine learning to contextualize identity decisions and continuously keep up with ever-shifting changes to user access rights. This will help organizations to proactively identify higher-risk areas that may require more governance, reducing the need for error-prone manual provisioning methods of today’s IAM systems.”
The release goes on, “To help determine efficient and secure access, the IAM capability generates a confidence score for each user, continually monitoring access data to ensure that the scores are frequently updated. Low confidence scores indicate potentially risky access, and high confidence scores can be considered for automated approvals, freeing those who conduct manual approvals to focus on unusual patterns and risky outliers. It can also predict and recommend access needs for new joiners in a company, saving time, money and effort in the onboarding process.”
