Identity and Access Management

Identity management is at the centre of how you securely connect people, devices and data.

In a digital world of multiple devices and cloud-based services, an IAM system is critical to automating processes, taking full control of users’ permissions and securing sensitive data.

Innovative identity solutions

ThirdSpace understands the challenges involved in IAM. Employees, contractors, partners and customers all need different levels of access and interaction.

But we’ve managed millions of identities.

Our technical teams have an unparalleled understanding of identity technologies – and we can leverage innovative solutions to deliver real value to your business.

Our approach

We can help you define and build your entire identity management life cycle, including verification controls, identity governance, privileged access and compliance. That includes single sign-on (SSO) and federation, multi-factor authentication (MFA) and risk-based conditional access.

We ensure secure access to whoever needs it, however it’s needed.

We take care of:

Identity life cycle management

Defining and automating the processes used to manage the entire life cycle of a digital identity.

Identity governance and administration

Know at all times who has access to which systems and information in your organisation. Learn more

Directory services

Managing, storing and presenting information about users and their required services.

Strong authentication

Ensuring user and device security goes beyond simple usernames and passwords.

Leading identity technologies

We use enterprise-grade technologies to develop our identity and access solutions, including Windows Server Active Directory, Azure, System Center and Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM).

MIM, for example, improves operational efficiency, automates management tasks and empowers end users, helping to relieve pressure on IT departments and help desks.
