Fortinet Identity and Access Management for User Secure Access

user secure access

Identity and Access Management (IAM) can simply be defined as ensuring that the right people get access to the right resources at the right time for the right reasons. The goal of IAM is to improve security and ultimately enabling business outcomes. IAM can support organizations in reducing costs, improving operations and service levels, helping compliance to achieve security objectives, and enabling greater agility to embrace the growth of bring your own device (BYOD), cloud computing adoption, and workforce transformation that is becoming more mobile.

The Fortinet IAM solution enables organizations to control user access to critical information, on-premises and in the cloud. It provides role-based access control that allows system administrators to provision access to systems or networks based on the roles of individual users within the organization, including employees, guests, contractors, and partners. Fortinet IAM also provides single sign-on (SSO), two-factor authentication, and X.509 certificate management. Fortinet IAM can be deployed on-premises, on the hosted cloud, or as a Fortinet cloud-based service model via FortiToken Cloud.

Solution Brief

What is the Fortinet IAM Solution?

IAM Solution

The Fortinet IAM solution supports organizations that need identity verification for secure access at scale. While an organization’s network services, data, and application access needs will vary across different user requirements, Fortinet IAM delivers secure access for all with three key components:

·       Verifying user identity with strong authentication and tying it to the user’s role in order to authorize access to appropriate resources.

·       Managing digital certificates that are used to validate the identity of domain owners such as websites, companies, individual users, or devices.

·       Reducing user log in with SSO capability. Users log in once, and with one-click they can gain access to permitted resources.

FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) provide IAM capabilities for small or medium organizations. As organizations expand, FortiAuthenticator is recommended for scale. For strong authentication, FortiToken provides identity verification with two-factor authentication via hardware tokens or a mobile application. Additionally, organizations can acquire two-factor authentication services via FortiToken Cloud
