With the acceleration of digital transformation, businesses must be nimble in their ability to adapt to change. And with the paradigm shift of the last year, a digital strategy must be at the forefront of any organization. Adopting a digital strategy streamlines processes, improves productivity, and ultimately drives greater efficiency.
Digital transformation may include increased adoption and reliance on cloud applications and platforms, opening customer access to applications and data as well as enhanced access for an increasingly remote workforce. From an identity perspective, the traditional perimeter starts disappearing and starts to open up your organization to specific vulnerabilities—which is why managing and governing access to systems, applications and resources is essential to every business.
Identity Security (also known as Identity and Access Management or IAM) needs to be at the forefront of your organization’s cybersecurity strategy. Identity Security safeguards against risk by properly provisioning access, protecting your business at scale and ensuring regulatory compliance.

According to a 2021 KPMG survey, 69 percent of CEO’s agreed that “strong cybersecurity is critical to engender trust with our key stakeholders.” CEO’s are starting to see cybersecurity as a differentiator—a competitive advantage – a way to build customer trust. However, if they want to engender their customers’ trust, they need to be able to implement and maintain an effective IAM program that restricts access to sensitive data and applications to authorized users.
