According to the report, Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance*, “Identity and access governance (IAG) is defined as (1) the process of requesting, approving, certifying and auditing access to applications, data and other IT services; and (2) the process of delivering security and business intelligence (BI) on how identities are created, managed and used for access. Software tools and services that provide support for most or all of this process are known as IAG products.“Today, IAG is the fastest-growing sector of identity and access management (IAM).
