Axiomatics Introduces Definitive Guide to Policy-Driven Authorization
CHICAGO, IL – Axiomatics, the leading provider of next-generation authorization solutions, today released The State of Authorization: Playbook Edition, a comprehensive guide offering in-depth analysis on every aspect of a policy-driven authorization initiative, from ideation through deployment. The Playbook addresses popular considerations including whether to build or buy, the differences between authentication and authorization, how authorization can optimize existing identity and access management (IAM) investments, and how to leverage generative AI to expedite your implementation.
“While more enterprises understand policy-driven authorization or fine-grained access control is necessary to successfully implement a Zero Trust or identity-first security initiative, there is still a misconception that effective implementation is too difficult,” shared Jim Barkdoll, CEO for Axiomatics. “The Playbook addresses a lot of these challenges in a pragmatic way based on the years of experience our team has had working with enterprises worldwide. Leveraging this guidance, organizations can gain a better understanding of the process associated with implementing a policy-driven authorization project.”
Specifically, The State of Authorization: Playbook Edition offers guidance on critical issues including:
- How authorization builds on authentication
- Understanding policy and policy lifecycle management
- Deployment methodology
- The three phases of authorization implementation
- Authorization and API Gateways
- Leveraging authorization to optimize identity governance and administration (IGA) and IAM investments
- Generating policy with generative AI
According to Gartner,”IAM teams must define what authentication, authorization and encryption mechanisms are to be used, for all new and legacy systems.” For large enterprises, many of which have a variety of applications that live in different environments, understanding how to develop a policy-driven authorization strategy that is both pragmatic and successful can seem like a daunting task. Even after an organization has decided to embark on an authorization initiative, getting buy-in from other internal stakeholders can be an arduous task. Through the State of Authorization: Playbook Edition, enterprise teams looking to adopt a policy-driven authorization will be able to share insight around a variety of critical topics with other internal stakeholders, ensuring everyone has an understanding of the impact of an authorization initiative as well as what is involved at each stage of deployment.
The State of Authorization: Playbook Edition is now available as a free download.
