IAM is an acronym for identity and access management. Sounds simple enough, right? Nonetheless, it's a term that describes the complex world of identity management access systems. When it comes to maintaining electronic identities, IAM is the glue that keeps technologies plus security and identity management altogether. IAM technology, which is not fully supported, can lead to problems with certain authorities. If an audit should occur, business owners must then prove themselves innocent of putting their contacts at risk. If everything goes well, then IAM technology will launch, track and record as well as successfully manage the user's identity along with any specific privileges and access but will do so electronically or by using automation. This should also ensure that everyone is treated equally and that all services are verifiable and also eligible for audit.
