Workforce identity and access management

Manage and govern employee identity and access to data and systems across the enterprise

The importance of employee identity and access management (IAM) has forced IT teams to balance quick, easy access to information with enterprise-grade data security. From provisioning a new employee to IT systems to managing access to the ever-growing landscape of cloud applications, IAM is more complex than ever. IT teams need to employ identity lifecycle management in realtime for thousands of employees with different and constantly changing levels of permissions.

What is workforce identity and access management?

Workforce identity and access management establishes, manages and governs data and system access rights for a diverse employee base. Systems include both internal applications as well as cloud-based applications, such as for expense management, travel or performance management.

Employees need to connect to internal systems and cloud applications from their office or home and through their laptops and smartphones. Scaling this across thousands of identities across the globe becomes instantly complex. The OpenText™ Identity and Access Management Platform helps large global enterprises solve employee identity and access management complexities by quickly provisioning employee identities to the resources they need, in the cloud or on-premises, in realtime with single sign on (SSO) across any access point.

OpenText Workforce Identity and Access Management overview

The OpenText Identity and Access Management (IAM) Platform governs employee access to information through role-based control, regulating access to systems or networks based on each user. OpenText IAM addresses many common challenges associated with providing employee access to corporate information resources, such as identity governance and administration, by offering visibility into who is accessing information with certification, audit and attestation for user identities.
