Comtact offers a range of solutions to enable organisations to adopt identity and access management (IAM) in the cloud and manage employee and customer access from anywhere in the world on any device.
We build authorisation into any app to support your most important customer-facing initiatives and create secure and engaging experiences.
We secure your employees, wherever they are through automated cloud and hybrid journeys.
IDaas enables you to manage user and customer access anytime/anywhere. Our eBook explains modern identity and how it can help your business.
Controlling application access is a crucial for securing the cloud revolution. Our guide presents the 8 main IAM challenges and how to address them.
Why identity and access management?
When a business expands and scales, it adapts with applications to streamline its network and operations. Where an employee may have once had one login and password, IT functions now manage hundreds of credentials for apps running on different platforms and multiple devices.
In the same way, many businesses now offer online services that require their customers to log in to a secure account. As a result, millions of credentials for the business’s customers must be managed globally. With users overwhelmed by having to remember so many passwords, there is a tendency for them to create ones that are easy to remember and often use the same password for many different applications. This creates a point of weakness for a hacker into many different applications.
With 81% of cyberbreaches caused by weak or stolen credentials (Verizon research), it is imperative for organisations to rely on different ways of authenticating a user identity beyond passwords.
Identity management solutions enable businesses to protect user credentials and sensitive data and free employees from time-consuming manual tasks – like password resets and account provisioning. In turn, this frees IT teams to focus more on core objectives.
Why Comtact for IAM?
At Comtact, we see every day the security concerns generated by factors such as the userbase expanding to include non-employees; inconvenient authentication controls being ignored or subverted; the reuse of the same passwords; stolen credentials; or a lack of IAM policies.
We also appreciate the challenges that organisations face in identity and access management across application environments, integrating with current security solutions, and collecting and reporting on user access and patterns.
Working with leading vendors such as Okta and Microsoft Azure, we address these concerns and challenges with identity management models which deliver a number of key benefits including:
Authentication to all apps and services, thus expanding the userbase safely.
Automation of provisioning and deprovisioning.
Improved user experience with less inconvenient user controls in place.
Adoption of more stringent access controls.
Secure your transition to the API economy
Organisations often undervalue security at the beginning of an API lifecycle and risk breaking changes and downtime if they add it later. Okta allows integration of your API gateway into the overall IAM approach and secure platforms from API security attacks, protecting your organisation with OAuth 2.0 compliant standards.
Secure accounts and keep attackers at bay
Protecting user trust is imperative for the bottom line. Okta secures your customer accounts at registration, authentication and in-app activity, using modern authorisation standards and machine learning to protect against intruders. It can manage consent and seamlessly integrate with leading privacy solutions for GDPR and CCPA compliance.
Modernise identity infrastructure
As organisations continue to move into the cloud, Okta helps smooth migration away from burdensome legacy systems while rapidly scaling app development and reducing the complexity required to extend identity to agile, cloud-based development.
Build highly scalable apps
Okta allows you to build highly scalable web and mobile applications that incorporate their authentication, authorisation, and user management to give your customers a seamless and secure experience.
Secure web APIs
APIs are the very foundation of modern applications. Okta makes it simple to create, apply, and adapt authorisation policies to protect your APIs.
Protect against account takeover
Okta allows you to secure customer accounts by stopping identity theft and credential attacks with stronger authentication.
Okta’s application integration tools enable a seamless experience across all your apps and portals.
Okta workforce solutions enable seamless access to all apps into one streamlined portal for your end users, providing them with seamless remote access from any device without compromising on security.
With more than 70% of hacking-related breaches caused by stolen credentials, Okta mitigates credential-focused attacks with a zero-trust network.
With the shift away from the network perimeter, Okta enables IT administrators with one centralised point to manage access for all apps, both cloud and on-prem.
Disparate access control issues aren’t only at the application layer. Okta manages access across the tech stack, including servers and APIs.
Acquired organisations introduce new identity stacks and are frequent targets. Consolidation can take years, putting extra demands on IT teams and introducing security risks. Okta’s centralised platform enables you to provide access for new teams on day one.
Okta allows IT costs to be minimised while driving efficiency and business technology availability. The Okta platform also fosters organisation-wide product innovation and scale support beyond traditional employees to external contractors and partners.
As cloud applications rapidly replace and augment on-premises applications, Okta supports access for an increasingly complex ecosystem.
Okta helps to reduce IT complexities as your partner ecosystems grow, helping make your partnerships more productive and integrated while eliminating access vulnerabilities.
