What is Customer Identity & Access Management (CIAM)?
Customer Identity Access Management also known as CIAM or CIAM Customer Identity and Access Management, focuses on melding authentication and authorization within customer-centric applications.

The primary objectives of CIAM Security include:

1. It enhances user registration and sign-in processes, by minimizing the threat of account breaches, especially given the prevalent issue of password repetition in the consumer domain.
2. CIAM system delivers tailored, brand-centric experiences to individual consumers, business entities, and medium to large-scale and ultra-large-scale enterprises.
3. CIAM is a scalable framework with CIAM Authentication capabilities, which efficiently handles ever-expanding customer bases, even reaching hundreds of millions.

Know more about CIAM:

Unlocking Success: Key Benefits of CIAM Explained!
The importance of a robust CIAM System cannot be understated, especially when data breaches are happening at a huge scale. As per a report by IBM, it is estimated that nearly 80% of organizations involved in breaches indicated a compromise of customer's personal data.

Integrating CIAM Authentication into systems managing everyday customer operations like self-account handling, bill settlements, and order monitoring is essential. Customer Identity and Access Management is a shield, that significantly reduces vulnerabilities related to inadequate password protocols and ensures top-tier customer identity management. Through CIAM Security measures, businesses fortify their defense against potential cyber threats.

Unlocking CIAM: Top Advantages at a Glance!
1. Identity and Access Management: IAM tools not only adeptly oversee digital identities but also manage their access to other applications and systems. Other types of identities managed by them include software (apps or programs), and hardware( like IoT devices).

2. Fortified Customer data through MFA and Adaptive Authentication
Many customers reuse passwords across multiple platforms online. A robust CIAM solution secures those passwords with adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), that looks over various factors like geo-location, time of day, and device. It supports even stronger security by increasing authentication requirements for high-risk login attempts.

3. Seamless and secure customer experiences:
Numerous businesses operate with various web platforms and portals, each having its own distinct identity database. This often mandates users to undergo authentication repeatedly when navigating between these platforms or switching between multiple applications. This can lead to a more cumbersome login experience. By consolidating all your digital avenues under one CIAM system, users enjoy a streamlined experience with a unified access point for all applications.

4. Easy, Quick, and reliable user migration: A robust CIAM solution functions closely with the existing system for quick and hassle-free migration of the customers without hindering their user experience.

5. Scalability and Uptime: An optimal enterprise solution should effortlessly accommodate a large user base while ensuring minimal delays and maximum uptime.

6. Customization with flexible APIs: When building applications, developers want to ensure a seamless customer experience for securing access to digital resources. APIs provide the flexibility needed to customize authentication requirements throughout the development lifecycle.

7. Multichannel support with self-service account: Optimal CIAM solutions should provide diverse access across all devices including mobile, laptop, and game consoles, and offer account self-service through a platform that allows users to reset passwords and navigate authentication protocols without IT intervention.

8. Integrated Application Oversight and Insightful Analytics: A robust CIAM solution not only streamlines the management of products across multiple platforms throughout their lifecycle but also empowers businesses with in-depth customer behavior analytics. These insights pave the way for informed decisions, enhancing conversions, bolstering retention, and facilitating upselling and cross-selling strategies.

CIAM key benefits:

How Does CIAM Become the Ultimate Shield for Customer Data?
At all the touchpoints of a user journey, CIAM ensures that the customer data is protected at all costs. Customer identity helps you minimize data breaches and fraud while strengthening security.

1. Data Breaches
Data breaches happen when malicious users get their hands on customer records and more often these records are in millions. There can be sensitive information such as passwords, usernames, phone numbers, credit card numbers, or other personal data. Many times such attacks are staged by insiders due to loopholes in security by the IT admins or development teams.

2. Fraud
Unlike breaches that target systems or databases, deception efforts usually focus on individual users. Commonly, perpetrators acquire user details from phishing schemes or compromised sites and then exploit these details on more sensitive platforms like bank websites. Given that many individuals reuse passwords across various sites, these deceptive acts frequently achieve their intended harm.

So the next question arises how to protect yourself from fraudulent activities?

1. MFA
MFA, Multifactor Authentication is a robust defense against any type of data breach as it elevates security measures beyond just usernames and passwords by adding another layer of identity confirmation. Typically, this includes dispatching a push alert to a device associated with the user's profile. Push notifications through prevalent authenticator apps using a customer identity mobile SDK is a secure and user-friendly MFA method.

2. Adaptive Authentication
Adaptive authentication triggers additional authentication factors or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) during high-risk scenarios based on factors like IP address, user behavior, device info, location, time, etc. By analyzing these factors, a risk score is assigned by the system.

If the risk is low, the user gets streamlined access without going through the additional MFA factor, whereas if the risk is high, the user is required to fulfill the MFA challenge in order to authenticate themselves and gain access to the requested resources.

3. Enhanced Fraud Prevention:
Elevate protection by integrating a variety of fraud prevention tools. A robust CIAM software ensures a balance between security and user experience. By harnessing insights from diverse threat detection sources, guide users dynamically based on the risk level and type they present, ensuring security throughout the user journey, not just limited to the authentication process.

Overall we can say that CIAM serves as a shield against potential fraud for both you and your clientele, ensuring security without overwhelming users with excessive protocols. By harnessing insights from diverse risk-detection avenues, users can be guided seamlessly based on the specific risk they pose, encompassing their whole interaction journey, not merely at the authentication stage.
