Ensuring productivity and security in accessing digital resources has become a top priority for companies and institutions worldwide. In this era of instant information, Access Management (AM) plays a fundamental role in protecting sensitive data and enhancing operational efficiency for organizations.
AM is an essential solution to guarantee the integrity of digital experiences and minimize security risks. With a powerful, comprehensive, and user-friendly open-source identity governance platform, companies can confidently address the challenges of Identity and Access Management (IAM).
Centralized Access: Simplifying and Strengthening Security
One of the primary benefits of Access Management is its capability to centralize user and employee access to different applications and systems. By consolidating and simplifying the access granting process, organizations can save time and valuable resources. Moreover, having a unified view of granted permissions allows quick identification of any unauthorized access, thereby enhancing data security.
Role-Based Access Policies: Efficiency and Risk Reduction
Another prominent feature of Access Management is the implementation of role-based access policies. By granting users appropriate permissions based on their roles and responsibilities, the issue of unnecessary access is avoided, thus bolstering security. This strategy also contributes to greater efficiency as employees can quickly access the resources they need to perform their tasks without delays.
At Soffid, we offer tools to manage access, empowering every company and organization to effectively face any IAM challenge, ensuring a secure and productive digital experience for our clients.

Soffid 3.4.7 is the latest version of our convergent platform. It is designed to provide comprehensive protection against cyberattacks. This new release incorporates a convergent perspective, offering a 360º view of your organization’s identities and optimizing the platform’s start-up processes. With improved functionality and user-friendly tools, Soffid 3.4.7 ensures a simplified and efficient experience during the start-up process.
One of the most significant features of the new version is the Configuration Wizard, which is divided into four sections: Identity Governance Administration (IGA), Identity Risk & Compliance (IRC), Privileged Access Management (PAM), and Access Management & Single Sign-On (AM).
To successfully maintain your organization’s IDs, Soffid requires the installation of a Sync Server component in the IGA area. The wizard provides step-by-step instructions for selecting the suitable platform to host the Sync Server. Additionally, you can easily configure the authoritative source of the identities by choosing the desired mode and following the wizard’s instructions. Soffid also offers another wizard that allows you to seamlessly add applications, such as Active Directory or a Database, from an application list.
The IRC section focuses on identity risk and compliance, encompassing processes and controls to ensure the authenticity and authorization of individuals accessing sensitive data or systems. Soffid introduces new wizards in this section to help you create roles for detecting risky role assignments (SoD), schedule weekly risk reports, define recertification campaigns, and establish advanced authorization rules.
For privileged access management, the PAM section enables you to track the usage and access of service and system management accounts. Through the configuration wizard, you can easily discover assets present in your network, publish accounts in the Password Vault, create PAM policies for granular control over privileged access, and establish multi-factor authentication (MFA) policies.
In the AM section, Soffid focuses on access management and single sign-on. This functionality allows you to identify users accessing applications and implement multi-factor authentication. You can register IDs for administration and protection, add and configure new Service Providers, set up strong authentication factors, and create adaptive authentication rules to dynamically adjust the authentication methods based on criteria.
With Soffid 3.4.7, we strive to provide you with a comprehensive solution to safeguard your organization from cyber threats. The enhanced functionality and user-friendly Configuration Wizard ensure a seamless and efficient experience during the start-up process. Take advantage of the new convergent perspective and the 360º view of your organization’s identities offered by Soffid, and fortify your defences against cyberattacks.

Protecting your digital identity and ensuring business security is crucial in today’s digital landscape. Identity and access management (IAM) plays a vital role in safeguarding digital experiences and mitigating potential consequences. Here are five essential IAM security practices to protect your company’s digital identity:
Implement robust password policies to prevent security risks associated with weak or reused passwords. Consequences may include data loss, IP theft, and compliance violations.
Use multifactor authentication (MFA) to defend against identity theft attacks. Attackers with password access can infiltrate systems, engage in fraud, and spread malware, leading to reputational damage, customer loss, and financial losses.
Manage privileges properly to prevent employees from gaining unnecessary access or abusing their privileges, which can result in data leaks, internal sabotage, and reputational harm.
Regularly monitor and audit systems to detect malicious activity and suspicious behaviour promptly. Failure to do so can lead to security breaches, exposing confidential data, incurring regulatory penalties, and losing customers.
Stay up-to-date with security patches and updates to avoid known vulnerabilities. Neglecting updates can leave your company susceptible to malware attacks, system compromises, operational disruptions, revenue loss, and damage to your brand’s reputation.
Protecting your company’s digital identity is essential for security and business continuity. By implementing strong IAM security practices, you can mitigate potential consequences such as data loss, reputational damage, and financial losses. Don’t overlook the importance of safeguarding your digital identity in today’s digital landscape.
Soffid is a converged IAM platform that will help you implement everything necessary to keep your company safe.
