IAM Identity & Access Management


Securely control user management and access

Logo SMF

Every company has an identity and rights management system. The question of which customers, suppliers or employees have which rights and company data within the IT infrastructure presents many IT managers with the challenge of maintaining an overview.

Especially in the course of the digital transformation, more systems are being opened up to the outside world – while new, decentralised solutions are being connected, data access from mobile devices is being made possible and sensitive data in general is being managed in the cloud. As a result, administration is becoming more complex.

IAM: successful digital transformation with identity & access management

Solutions in the context of identity management help to meet this challenge and adhere to the necessary security and compliance guidelines. IAM, identity & access management, ensures that the respective access rights correspond to the guidelines and roles of the users.

All operations on different systems and applications are correctly authenticated, authorised and verified. In order to securely control user access, the specialist departments can be involved.


All users, one authentication, many options with IAM

The advancing digitalisation affects all areas of life. Cities and municipalities are facing up to the challenges of the digital transformation and taking advantage of the associated opportunities with smart city projects.

Through our central IAM, the digital services of a city are sustainably integrated with each other and made accessible to citizens or visitors. At the same time, safety standards are improved and administrative efforts are reduced.

Every project is individual.  We’ll be happy to advise you.

With our authorisation systems, our customers can efficiently manage more than one million user accounts. We create a web-based single sign-on between different applications and aggregate originally different user accounts into a single central account. Access rights and personal data are always securely under control.

With SMF as a partner in the field of identity & access management, we were able to publish our services in accordance with high security and quality standards in a short project period.
