The New Power Couple – Identity Governance and Authorization Controls

Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) is a powerful tool in the hands of an organization. It helps govern access, provides separation of duties for critical tasks, and even handles privileged access to ensure that only those entitled can do certain things.
