Gartner research note—
Definition: Identity Governance and Administration


IAM and IT security leaders should use Gartner's definition for IGA tools to understand how these tools help establish control over identity life cycles, facilitate self-service access requests, provision accounts, and provide insight into and govern who can access what.

DETAILS

Key Challenges

  • In today's highly connected IT environment, organizations must manage large numbers of users with different access requirements across many different applications, platforms and operating systems.
  • Most organizations struggle with proliferating user account repositories, and coordinating the management of identities and access rights (roles, group memberships and so on) across those repositories.

Recommendations

Identity and access management (IAM) and IT security leaders should use this definition to:

  • Understand how identity governance and administration (IGA) technology can help manage identities and access rights, and structure goals, functions and requirements accordingly.
  • Differentiate between various market offerings that manage users and accounts.
