UAM enables a unified approach to managing access for both SaaS and on-premises application environments and extends to networks and devices, using SaaS infrastructure which unifies all corporate users and user directories. It simplifies overall administration, reduces costs and operational complexity, improves the end-user experience, and enhances organizational security by fusing the best components of on-premises tools and Identity-as-a-Service offerings. It bridges the gap between directory infrastructure and on-premises applications, connecting to a range of web app servers like Apache, IIS, Tomcat, and others.
Benefits of UAM:
- Streamlined Operations: Offers a centralized dashboard for managing multiple platforms and roles, automates processes like user onboarding, and reduces manual labor.
- Enhanced User Experience: Provides Single Sign-On (SSO) for easier access across services, and allows for personalized interactions.
- Robust Security: Ensures uniform security protocols, simplifies compliance with standards like GDPR or PCI DSS, and includes features like multi-factor authentication.
- Data-Driven Decisions: Unified analytics for better insight, optimized campaigns, and workflow designs.
