Securing Success: The Power of Tailored IAM Solutions

With data breaches and cyber threats becoming both increasingly prevalent and increasingly effective, businesses are beginning realising the critical importance of Identity and Access Management (IAM) in their cyber security strategies. Not only does IAM help to strengthen businesses’ cyber defences, but it can streamline operations. With an effective IAM framework, businesses can benefit greatly. Here at Infosec K2K, we specialise in providing bespoke IAM solutions designed to meet the unique needs of our clients.

How IAM Enhances Security and Efficiency

IAM strategies encompass a range of processes, all of which are aimed at managing, tracking and securing the digital identities associated with your network – and controlling users’ access to resources. By implementing IAM solutions, businesses can ensure that only those individuals that they’ve already authorised have access to sensitive data and systems. This way, they can keep their most secure assets safe, and minimise the risk of data breaches and insider threats.

What’s more, IAM can be used to streamline your business’ user provisioning and deprovisioning processes. This can reduce your administrative overhead costs and reduce the chance of human error. Last year, research showed that 75% of data breaches are caused by the poor management of digital identities, access, and privileges. Businesses and government organisations can both fall into this trap. Earlier this year, a government agency was hacked after a malicious actor used the credentials of a former employee’s account. By not removing the account, the agency left themselves vulnerable to breaches. With an effective IAM solution in place, organisations can enforce least privilege access policies across their network. This way they can implement stronger authentication policies and centralise identity governance, strengthening their defences and protecting their data.

The Challenges Posed By IAM

Despite the benefits of IAM, some businesses still encounter challenges when it comes to implementing and managing IAM solutions in their network. Some of the most common obstacles include complexity, scalability, interoperability, and stringent regulatory requirements surrounding data protection and privacy. Smaller organisations may struggle to navigate  IAM technology and the regulatory, risk management and compliance mandates associated with them. This can in turn lead to delays, cost overruns, and the potential for data breaches – which can have dire consequences. Research by IBM showed that the average cost of a data breach was $4.45 million (£3.5 million) last year.

That’s not all, though. Even after a business has implemented an IAM solution, it will still require ongoing monitoring, maintenance, and updates. That doesn’t mean software updates – businesses need to evaluate their solution and update best practices. This way, they’ll ensure they can stand up to emerging cyber threats and meet new regulatory requirements. At Infosec K2K we understand the challenges our clients face, and offer comprehensive support to help them overcome these obstacles.

Creating an Effective Strategy

For businesses of any size, developing an effective IAM strategy is crucial. The first step is a thorough understanding of the organisation’s business objectives, IT infrastructure, and security requirements. Here at Infosec K2K, we work closely with our clients to assess their IAM capabilities and identify areas for improvement.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, is IAM Right For You?

Cyber security is evolving all the time, as cyber criminals develop new tools, while security professionals develop new strategies to deal with them. One aspect of cyber security that doesn’t change, however, is how vital it is to ensure the identity of users accessing your network. Identity and Access Management (IAM) has emerged as one of the best ways to strengthen your cyber defences. By outsourcing their needs and opting for a managed IAM, businesses could reap the benefits.

What is IAM?

Despite the simple-sounding name, IAM is about more than ensuring people have the right usernames and passwords. It focuses on ensuring authorised access to an organisation’s network and assets, by carefully managing user identities and authorisation processes. With IAM, businesses can enforce their own authentication policies and safeguard their systems. IAM solutions typically include user provisioning, authentication mechanisms, role-based access controls, and monitoring. Not only does IAM protect organisations’ assets, but it ensures they meet with regulations and compliance requirements – according to the Identity Theft Resource Center’s findings, 83% of organisations admitted IAM plays a key role in their compliance strategies.

Why Choose IAM?

With cyber threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, robust IAM solutions are needed to protect networks against the threat of hackers and data breaches. The cost of a data breach is rising steadily, and last year the average cost of a breach was estimated to be $4.45 million. Despite the dangers of these kinds of cyber incidents, many businesses are still choosing to take the chance and not use IAM. Last year, the National Cyber Security Centre’s Cyber security breaches survey 2023 revealed the number of small businesses who said cyber security was a top priority had fallen to 68%.

Despite the benefits of IAM, implementing it in your business can be both time-consuming and expensive. For these businesses, however, there’s a solution. Infosec K2K’s Managed IAM services include multi factor authentication, role-based access controls, and real-time monitoring, allowing us to detect and respond to potential security incidents quickly and efficiently. By outsourcing your IAM needs to us, you can tap into our wealth of expertise and use our cutting-edge technology to stay ahead of emerging threats.


One of the primary considerations for businesses contemplating IAM solutions is the cost-effectiveness of outsourcing these services to another firm like Infosec K2K. Managed IAM services offer a cheaper alternative to in-house IAM solutions, eliminating the need for extensive infrastructure investments as well as dedicated personnel working on IAM full-time.

Here at Infosec K2K, our Managed IAM services are designed to streamline costs while still delivering robust security solutions. Businesses can rely on the expertise of our IAM specialists without having to recruit and train new personnel. With our team taking care of everything from implementing your IAM solution to testing your defences, your existing employees will be free to spend their time on other tasks that are more vital to your business.
