Unlock your digital business potential with smooth and secure digital identity and access management



Have you counted how many different passwords you have for all the apps and services you need in your work? Giving and revoking access rights can be time-consuming and is prone to errors if you do it manually. Having incorrect access rights can lead to data leaks and loss of privacy. What about your customers? Can you reliably confirm their identities? Can you provide them with tools that allow them to control how their data is used?

The efficient handling of digital identities will unlock your digital business and give you a competitive advantage. With our unique experience in digital identity management and user authentication, we will help you to:

Manage digital identities securely. We help you to ensure the privacy and security of your customer data collection and handling.

Keep user accounts and privileges up-to-date. We help you set up automatic processes and approval workflows to ensure that users quickly get the credentials they need but only those and only when they need them.

Protect access to valuable data. Privileged accounts, such as administrator accounts, have access to precious data such as customer databases, configuration, and intellectual property. We help you with privileged access management solutions so your data stays protected.

Ensure a smooth user experience. Lessen the hassle of multiple user accounts and passwords. Your users will save time with single-sign-on solutions and passwordless authentication options that will also enhance the user experience.

Managed Identity and Access Management (MIAM)

The sudden explosive growth in demand and the changing capacity needs in digital services can be challenging. If your organization does not keep up with maintaining secure digital services and improving customer experience, the end-users might switch service providers easily due to poor user experience. The lack of transparency in data processing and data security is another no-go for many users, so your identity handling processes must inspire confidence.

Nixu Managed Identity Service (Nixu MIAM) is a turnkey solution providing you with an all-inclusive digital identity journey that meets your digital business requirements – privacy-by-design and security built-in. We will take care of running, hosting, and continuously improving the service.

Nixu MIAM focuses on consumer and business-to-business identity and access management, but the technologies behind the service are also able to provide identity governance (IGA), IoT device management, and workforce IAM capabilities.

Managed Privileged Access Management (PAM)

Managing administrator accounts and other privileged credentials can be time-consuming for you IT. Privileged permissions typically accumulate because nobody remembers to remove them. Giving excessive permissions violates the principle of least privilege, and sharing admin credentials prevents you from having a proper audit trail. All this paves the way for cybercriminals who can use compromised credentials to lateral movement within the organization, resulting in serious data leaks.

Our Managed Privileged Access Management (PAM) service helps you with all kinds of privileged accounts: Windows domain admins, Linux root accounts, SSH keys, database accounts, and even social media accounts. We help you identify your essential accounts, the use cases for privileged access management, and security policies. We will implement the PAM solution using best-of-breed tools and maintain and monitor it for you.

With our PAM solution, you will achieve peace of mind, knowing that access to important data and administrative operations are protected. Your CISO, the legal team, end-users, and the IT department will all benefit because you will have:

  • Auditability and compliance. With a full audit trail, you can track what happened and who used the credentials.
  • Data protection. Credentials can be given to only one user at a time and are changed after every login.
  • Reduced IT costs and less manual work to handle permissions.

Business-to-business and business-to-consumer IAM

Whether you are doing business with consumers or other companies, digital channels are a significant part of providing the service. To provide your users access to the right resources, information and support, you need to identify them first. Digital identities are an essential piece of the puzzle when you want to provide personalized, secure, and privacy-aware services with enhanced user experience for web and mobile applications, APIs, and face-to-face services.

Workforce IAM (IGA)

Internal and external workforce usually needs access to numerous IT systems. Granting access quickly to newcomers and removing or changing access rights in all these systems when people leave or change job roles puts pressure on the organization. Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions tackle this complex topic of managing the entire workforce's identities and access rights.

We provide workforce IAM-related advisory and complete IGA solutions to help organizations improve information security, meet compliance requirements, and improve operational efficiency. We partner with the leading IGA cloud service providers and technology vendors and recommend an IGA solution that fits your individual needs and configure the solution to match your specific requirements.

With our IGA solution, you will be able to:

  • Control access granularly and efficiently.
  • Make sure new joiners and movers will get access on time, and that access is revoked when the workforce leaves the company.
  • Enforce risk-based controls and segregation of duties (SoD) when granting new access rights.
  • Run regular access re-certification campaigns to ensure access rights are up-to-date.
  • Ensure your organization meets compliance requirements related to workforce identity and access management.
