Due to the size of small and medium businesses, many owners assume that their identity access management (IAM) information is relatively safe. However, many cybersecurity attacks still target small businesses, meaning identity access management is essential to improving your company’s security and protecting your employees’ identities. Through identity access management, small businesses can improve their productivity and security by unifying their employees’ access information into one easily scalable interface.

What Is Small Business Identity Access Management?

Small business identity access management software creates a scalable database of user information all in one place so your business can keep better track of your user records and user roles. With the right identity access management software for your business, you can unify all your directory systems so that no technology, new or old, is left behind.

Identity access management also increases your business’s security through features such as multi-factor authentication and single sign-ons. By automating the sign-on and authentication process, you can improve your business’s productivity by freeing up time that IT services usually spend on matters like password resetting and other login issues.

The Benefits of Small Business IAM Software

Small business identity access management software allows your business to reap the following benefits:

Improve Password Security

As the number of applications and sites we have to log into increases, it becomes drastically more difficult to protect your employees’ password security and create new and secure passwords. You can increase your security and make logins easier with a single sign-on for small businesses that use only one set of credentials across multiple sites and applications. Many business identity access management software even works with third-party applications and websites.

Keep Sensitive Data Secure

Identity access management software keeps your sensitive data secure through using methods such as robust LDAP Proxy Firewalls. It has also become the security gold standard to ensure that all of your employees’ passwords are protected using two-factor authentication at a minimum, and many identity access management software solutions offer multi-factor authentication. By allowing your employees to log in to their work systems using their phones or devices as authentication, you can make logging in both easier and more secure.

Increase Your IT Staff’s Productivity

If you run a small business, your IT security teams may spend hours working on password management and resets every week. That’s a large amount of valuable time that your tech team could spend assisting your business in other ways. Identity access management software allows small businesses to take some tasks off their IT team’s plate and allow for both easier and more secure password management. Single sign-on solutions and multi-factor identification make logins easier and increase your IT staff’s productivity since they won’t have to deal with password breaches due to weak or reused passwords.

Finding the Right Identity Management Software for Your Small Business

Before choosing the right identity management software for your business, you must perform extensive research on which software has the right features for your organization. You should investigate the following considerations and features before choosing a business identity management software:

  • Cloud-based technology: While many small businesses already use cloud-based identity management solutions, the number of companies adopting cloud-based technology will likely skyrocket in the next few years. With cloud technology, your business can perform technological feats that are unparalleled compared to the technology that’s come beforehand. Increase your productivity all-around your business with cloud-based identity management technology.
  • Budgets: Investing in multiple identity management protection measures can add up quickly and become cost-prohibitive. To get the most comprehensive coverage at the most cost-effective price point, make sure your identity management system unifies your existing digital infrastructure into one easy-to-use interface.
  • Consistent updates: For identity management software to protect your information, it needs to be consistently updated and on the lookout for potential security breaches. Make sure the identity management software consistently protects your data and keeps up with evolving threats.
