ManageEngine Identity360

Identify Management (IdM), or IAM stands for identity and access management, known as the technology that ensures that only the authorized users or people in your system have access to resources depending on their job needs. Also, both IAM and IdM systems are a part of security and IT Data Management, identity management solutions (such as ManageEngine Identity360) not only protect data and software but also hardware resources like networks, servers, and storage devices from any unauthorized access in the organization. So Identity management helps you to avoid ransomware attacks. People think that IAM and IdM are the same, however, Identity management focuses on the user identity including the groups of users, roles, and permissions, and IdM focuses on protecting identities using multi-factor auth, biometrics, passwords..etc.

Identity360 is one of the cloud-based and single sign-on ManageEngine products, it’s a good solution for enterprises to provide users easy and secure access to business applications, and this will be so helpful in case of having a lot of several apps in the organization.

There is no big difference between Identity Management and Access Management, but still, both concepts are dissimilar.

  • Identity management for authentication users.
  • On the other hand Access Management for authorizing users.

However, some people see authentication and authorization concepts also confusing to understand. In short, authentication is a process of verifying someone or something’s identity (They really are), and this requires something related to the user such as biometrics or he only knows it like a password. Authorization only determines the level of access and permissions you need to have after login.
