What Is IAM?

►  IAM   is an acronym that stands for:   Identity & Access Management

►  IAM   is defined as:   A security discipline that enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times for the right reasons. Specifically, IAM addresses the mission-critical need to ensure appropriate access to resources across increasingly heterogeneous technology environments, and to meet increasingly rigorous compliance requirements. This security practice is a crucial undertaking for any enterprise. It is increasingly business-aligned, and it requires business skills, not just technical expertise.
