What is Access Management?
Access Management controls which web sites or elements within web sites a user can access and authentication they need to access each piece. By installing an Access Manager as part of the security infrastructure users can gain Single Sign On to the web sites that they are allowed to access. In addition elements of web sites can be removed from an individual’s access list. Access Manager also allows or graded authentication. For access to some web site an initial login with ID and Password can be sufficient but for more secure sites Access Manager can enforce two factor authentication even when the actual application does not support two factor authentication.
