Accenture releases new digital identity and access management solution
Accenture has announced the release of a new digital identity and access management (IAM) capability. The new solution will enable organizations to reduce the costs and risks of over-provisioning user accounts, Accenture explained.

“When it comes to managing user privileges, the provisioning of access should be based on precise knowledge of who a person is and why they need it,” said Kelly Bissell, a senior managing director at Accenture who leads its global Security practice. “The challenge is that existing approaches to access management are built on guesswork instead of a complete level of information. With our IAM capability we’ve created a proactive approach to identity management that help reduce human error and cost and helps improve risk awareness and make outliers easier to identify.”
