To gain access into an enterprise requires one to follow a number of steps. Employees need to enter buildings, open gates, enter networks, or open applications. But a majority of the time, organizations silo these physical and logical systems or manage them in isolation, which results in Multiple ID's, Passwords, and Tokens. This causes headaches, not only for staff, but also for the IT and other departments responsible to control such swarm of identities.
'Converged Identity and Access Management' solves such problems and allows common access cards to be configured for both facility and IT access requirements. neXus has delivered some of the largest and most brilliant systems of certificate-based digital identities for appropriate management.
We have taken this concept further and developed something unique. Our solution brings IT environments together through a single multipurpose smart card that works for login, identification, and physical access.
Enterprise IT landscape is experiencing a major transformation due to the Consumerization of IT as end users, increasingly, make their own decisions on how they consume IT. The nexus of forces; cloud, social, mobile, and information, as defined by the Gartner group, are accelerated by the empowerment of the end users. Leaders now, need to adapt to this changing landscape fast. Failure to meet the demands of end users would lead to increased business risks and reduced competitiveness. Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) is the outcome of such a trend.
Allowing employees to use personal smartphones or tablets for work can help businesses to cut costs. But the deluge of untethered end devices can overwhelm legacy security systems and put sensitive data at risk. So it is essential to strike the right balance: to effectively manage and control access to information and also ensure a seamless user experience.
