An acronym for Identity and Access Management, IAM refers to a framework of policies and technologies for ensuring that the proper people in an enterprise have the appropriate access to technology resources. Also called identity management(IdM), IAM systems fall under the overarching umbrella of IT security.

It can be divided into three fundamental capabilities: Manage Digital Identities, Authenticate Users, and Authorize Access to Resources.
