What is access management? Access management is largely an IT, security, and data management process used to grant access to your employees while blocking invalid users from your systems.
Most of the time, access management goes hand-in-hand with the use of identity management. Identity management, sometimes called identity access management (IAM) establishes provisions and is the function that controls, users, user roles, groups, and IT policies. Access Management ensures all user roles and rules are followed.
An access management-based system will store user roles and profiles, and process access requests based on established permissions.
