Forrester estimates 80% of security breaches result in the theft of privileged user credentials. Modernizing your Identity and Privileged Access Management Program should be a top priority, but oftentimes, organizations pursue a disjointed, multi-year approach—across multiple departments—that ultimately yields inadequate results with misaligned business goals.Anexinet’s IAM Modernization Assessment guides your strategic direction, enabling your IAM Program to support technical, business, and process goals while accommodating future initiatives and providing a plan and business justification to transform and modernize your IAM Program.

Our proven approach assesses the maturity of your IAM Program, typically over a 2-week period:
We begin our IAM assessment by gathering documentation, reviewing the assessment scope, identifying key Business and Technical stakeholders, and analyzing your major pain points and opportunities. This enables us to understand how your primary systems are organized and determine your requirements for success.
Next, we conduct onsite Business, Technology and Process Assessment Workshops, interview stakeholders, and review existing technologies, business processes, and documentation. This enables us to fully understand your current and future IAM needs, including processes and dependencies, compliance requirements, pain points and opportunities. Additionally, we assess how the IAM program must support your technical and business goals while accommodating future initiatives and growth.
Here, we review our findings, discuss any issues and immediate concerns, including technology and process gaps. Finally, we devise a roadmap to transform and modernize your IAM Program.
