Identity and access solutions

Consulting services that help manage your digital identities, like users and devices, to provide real-time, secure, conditional access to critical organizational resources—without restricting your ability to conduct business.

With traditional network boundaries becoming obscured by the growth of cloud, mobile and digital technologies, identity and access have become the new perimeter and an increasingly critical security capability for organizations. However, many have not first adequately managed their traditional network access, putting the organization in a vulnerable position. As well, many organizations now operate complex businesses powered by distributed hybrid technology architectures. An organization’s security leaders must also address the pressing issue of malicious actors and cybercriminals constantly evolving their methods, making effective cyber defense increasingly challenging. These scenarios necessitate implementation of robust, effective identity and access strategies to prevent unwanted or unauthorized access to critical information and assets. An organization is best served working with a partner that ensures their security solutions are adaptive, helps them meet the evolving cyberthreats of today’s environment and prepares them for tomorrow’s challenges.

Centre to an organization’s security is the concept of an identity. This identifier is unique to every individual, system, process and device that interacts within an organization’s technology environment. Attributes specific to a given identity in aggregate begin to shape the digital identity that establishes a unique entity. These digital identities are the cornerstone of how we manage access to critical systems and data. The desired state is an environment where every identity is known yet exists untrusted. It requires time as well as a level of maturity within the organization.
