Who can access which applications and systems? There’s no question about it: managing identities and authorizations is a complex matter – especially in companies with hundreds or even thousands of employees.
In everyday life it often looks like this: IT can hardly keep up with identity management because the workforce and user roles are constantly changing, unused licenses cost money and unnecessary access increases the security risk.
But how can digital identities be managed efficiently when the classic role model reaches its limits? Providers like ForgeRock are breaking new ground. They rely on modern machine learning methods to master the constantly growing number of digital identities and roles in dynamic companies.
That means more efficiency in everyday business. The access manager no longer has to negotiate access requests, instead the AI has the situation in view – at least for the majority of the workforce. After an initial input from HR & Co., she learns on the basis of a “score” how risky certain areas are and whether access requests can be automatically approved.
Human intervention is only required in the case of outliers (abnormal accesses) for readjustment and in order to train the machine that is capable of learning, which also provides recommendations for decisions. The advantages of this so-called “autonomous identity” are particularly obvious for growing and agile companies.

Not only the IT specialists in the control tower benefit. There are also advantages for users in everyday work. Whether on the mobile device or on the desktop – you no longer have to wait for long approval processes or have to undergo time-consuming certification, since artificial intelligence can grant access in real time.
At the same time, company-wide security increases because the AI constantly monitors which accesses or applications are actually in use and therefore necessary. A nice side effect: Unused software and over-licensing are a thing of the past.
Artificial intelligence and efficiency are almost synonymous today. The advantages of machine learning and Co. are best illustrated by specific application examples such as intelligent identity management. Here, a supposedly minor intervention generates company-wide efficiency.
