Identity and Access Management

As your business grows, protecting your network from unauthorised access increases, especially if you utilise remote teams across multiple locations.

Taking control is a major challenge but not impossible. Identity and Access Management is the answer.

How we work

No boundaries

When things were much simpler, controlling access was relatively easy – you set the perimeter, put all resources behind a firewall and restricted access to those behind it.

Today, with no boundaries, and employees needing access to resources anytime and anywhere, it is impossible to address the unlimited ways how your data can be accessed across multiple locations often using third-party systems, platforms, applications, and devices – not always under your control.

What we offer
how we work


Every organisation is different, and their Identity and Access Management requirements will vary depending on several factors – number of locations, type and number of cloud providers, number of employees, third party systems and so on.

Understanding IAM

IAM helps organisations protect their data and resources by ensuring that only authorised users have access to them at the right time and for the right reasons.

The need for secure access extends beyond employees working on company machines. It also includes contractors, vendors, business partners, and people working on personal devices.

Why IAM is important

IAM helps an organisation’s IT department strike the right balance between keeping important data and resources inaccessible to most but still accessible to some.

With IAM your business can secure, manage, and define roles and access privileges for users and identities and maintain compliance with multiple standards.

Analysing IAM in your business

Implementing Identify and Access Management solution should be based on an in-depth assessment of your security posture to identify any gaps that may be putting your identities at risk.

BMIT uses a Cybersecurity Discovery Assessment tool that can help you understand what safeguards you have and what you can apply to protect your identities.

How it works

IAM works by managing user identities and access to resources across multiple cloud instances. When a user logs in, the system checks to see if their login credentials match what’s stored in its database.

IAM solutions consist of various components and systems such as Single Sign-On (SSO), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Passwordless authentication, Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and Conditional Access.

SSO is a form of access control that enables users to authenticate with multiple software applications or systems using just one login and one set of credentials.

MFA is an authentication method that requires users to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to a resource.

Passwordless authentication uses different methods to authenticate such as an authenticator app on a phone, Windows Hello on PC or a security key, such as FIDO2.

RBAC is an approach to restricting system access to authorized users based on their roles within an organization.

Conditional Access sets conditions such as device, location, or real-time risk information as conditions for access.
