Today’s business environment is becoming increasingly complex with more pressure than ever to reduce costs while at the same time increasing user productivity and improving security levels.
Traditionally password management has been an IT responsibility. With so much at stake, businesses need to be certain that a user’s identity is securely managed. Regulatory compliance initiatives and good security practices require strong password policies and with users having access to more and more resources there is increased risk from insecure password practices.
A consequence of businesses getting bigger and spreading across the globe is increasing pressure on IT and organizations are increasingly recognizing the need to implement a strong self service password management solution.
However, doing so is not easy – there are a number of challenges that must be simultaneously met.
- Reducing IT costs
- Reducing IT call volume
- Maximize user adoption
- Strong security business-wide
- Business user acceptance
- Simplicity across the business
