What is an IAM/SSO solution?

IAM (Identity and Access Management) and SSO (Single Sign-On) are two related concepts in the field of cybersecurity that are used to manage user access to digital resources such as applications, databases, and networks.

Leading solutions in this area assist businesses in setting up a security framework that enables them to recognize network users and manage their duties and access permissions. The category also aims to recognize authentication and authorisation tools like single sign-on (SSO).

A truly innovative solution should make users be able to access several services and resources by just logging in once and using a single set of credentials in a streamlined and future-proof way.
