At ProofID we live and breathe Identity and Access Management – it’s our whole world.
We understand that whilst virtually every project that you undertake will have an identity management element, it’s a complex technology with impenetrable terminology and acronyms, and can be daunting. That’s why we’re passionate about making identity management easy.
We believe that identity management can be transformational for the modern enterprise, with significant potential benefits in terms of security, productivity, compliance and revenues. However, organisations which find themselves ‘down in the weeds’ with their IAM platform often don’t have time or space to achieve these strategic objectives. We designed our IAM Managed Service and Identity, Governance and Administration (IGA) with this in mind; we want you to focus on realising your identity and access management vision and our products and services will help you take care of the rest. https://proofid.com/
