- provides users and devices with the right level of access matching their role and responsibility,
- supports and provides statistical analysis of processes that include authorization and certification to determine compliance
- highlight IAM process inefficiencies and,
- help you discover and remove accounts that are no longer in use or are no longer needed for a job function.
