    Implementing controls and technologies to protect you from an increasingly complex threat landscape.

    Use our services to develop and implement a coherent strategy ensuring that only appropriate users and devices have access to your critical information services and data when they need it and ensuring that you are compliant and can easily demonstrate this compliance with your policies, legislation best practice whilst delivering a good, safe user experience efficiently.

    Ensuring that the correct users and devices have the appropriate access to relevant services and data wherever they reside is key to effective security management. As organisations drive digital and cloud adoption and security and compliance obligations and complexity grows, Identity and Access Management (IAM) becomes more critical to managing your user’s identity and access lifecycle, mobile device management and information protection strategies.

    Manual based IAM processes are typically slow, expensive, error prone and do not provide the levels of transparency, workflow and audit that organisations need. The net result is that users either don’t have access to the resources they need, a productivity problem, or too much access to resources for too long which is usually a security and compliance issue.

    Ward Solutions have a wide range of highly specialised services and solutions to help organisations manage their Identity and Access requirements. Since our foundation we have implemented some of the largest and most complex IAM solutions in some of the most challenging use cases in the Ireland and Northern Ireland in sectors such as higher education and research, utilities, finance and, healthcare.
