How to Choose the Right Identity Management Solution for Healthcare
Identity and access management (IAM) systems reside at the center of cybersecurity strategies, providing the core identification, authentication, and authorization services required to create secure technology environments.
Hospitals, health systems, and other large organizations have struggled with IAM solutions for years. Their unique needs have long stretched the limits of IAM technologies, which were mainly designed to support traditional firms' more straightforward requirements. Much of this challenge comes from the many affiliations that exist within the healthcare space.
IAM platforms join Infrastructure as a Service provider, networking vendors, and database platforms at the heart of an organization's technology stack. A failure in any one of these critical components could bring the organization to its knees. In fact, homegrown integrations' instability is often one of the driving forces behind a move to adopt a commercial IAM platform.
