Managing business partner access presents distinct challenges for IT and security teams, which differs significantly from employee access management. Every person you let through your digital front door is potentially someone who could bring a cybercriminal along with them. 

Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting partner access, with 1 in 6 breaches resulting from business partner compromise. And, business partners still expect consumer-like access experiences to stay productive.

Join us for a discussion on the role Identity and Access Management (IAM) plays in accelerating growth through enhanced partner collaboration. During this session, we'll explore practical examples of companies leveraging IAM as a competitive advantage, ensuring partners enjoy superior collaboration experiences. We’ll delve into the role that IAM plays in:

  • Risk Reduction: Understand how to effectively onboard and offboard external users and implement security policies that don’t hinder productivity
  • Cost Reduction: Discover strategies to maximize your budget with a smarter approach to partner identity management
  • Time to Value: Learn how to expedite the onboarding process for new partners and enable self-service
