What is USER MANAGEMENT?
User Management in simple terms is the ability to empower administrators to manage user access to various IT resources. User management in recent times has been recognized as the basic security essential for any organization using multiple IT resources.
User management enables the administrator to control the level of access given to any user. They can also decide on who to on-board and off-board, to and from the various IT resources. These IT resources can be systems, devices, applications, storage systems, networks, SaaS services, and more.
The recent trend of adopting cloud-based IAM (Identity and Access Management) has empowered administrators with much greater control over the various digital assets. Earlier, it was widely accepted over closed VPNs.
In any organization, there is always a need to protect information from being misused. The advent of user management ensures certain information is accessible to edit by a select few. This ensures there is accountability to any change or tampering with the information in question.
By defining the limit of access to only those approved, the administrator has better control over the systems. There is lesser interference from inter-connectivity between departments. For example, an accountant has less use of access to customer feedback used for market research. This ensures the information reaches the right people and only the concerned people.
Likewise, the financial records are of high importance and confidentiality is of high priority. By assigning these to certain users, 1 can ensure its safety.
User Management makes it convenient for the administrator in terms of assigning duties and ownership to various projects. This invariably also imparts motivation and thus enhances performance. It solves the problem by managing user access to various resources at a single point.
AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud platforms are some of the cloud IaaS which have seen a huge revolution in their operations. Coupled with web applications, users can access more IT resources than ever before, which is why user management has received such wide acceptance in recent times.
User Management software can be detailed and customizable like in Google Analytics, Google AdWords, and WordPress.
