Identity and Access Management


Mobility and the cloud are the new normal. Organizations today must enable their users to be productive on the go, while still protecting their data. Microsoft’s identity and access management (IAM) solutions
empower enterprise mobility by letting users work where and how they want, while still allowing IT to manage data, control access, and protect information across devices and applications. At the core of Microsoft’s IAM solutions is Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) 2016.

Why MIM 2016?
Microsoft’s IAM solutions provide an identity management system that spans cloud and on-premises environments. This system provides a spectrum of services, including federation, identity
management, device registration, user provisioning, application access control, and data protection. Its combination of Windows Server Active Directory, MIM, and Microsoft Azure Active Directory enables organizations to easily secure their modern hybrid infrastructure.

MIM 2016 binds Microsoft’s IAM solutions together by seamlessly bridging multiple on-premises identity stores with Azure Active Directory, such as Active Directory or any third-party directory or database that applications use for authentication and authorization. This provides consistent experiences to on-premises line-of-business (LOB) applications and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions.
