Convenient self-service portal
Free up IT teams' workloads by letting users reset their passwords, configure two-factor authentication (2FA), and customize their profiles.
Protect all user credentials on C2 Identity with the Secure Remote Password (SRP) protocol and complex password requirements.
Secure credential protection
C2 Identity communicates with clients using SRP, a secure zero-knowledge password protocol. SRP generates a secure encryption key and provides authentication without ever sending password-equivalent data over the network, thereby protecting against man-in-the-middle attacks.
Users can enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) and time-based one-time passwords (TOTPs) while system administrators can enforce a strict password policy to protect user credentials and user identities.

What is identity and access management (IAM)?
Identity and access management (IAM) is a cybersecurity practice that focuses on managing user identities and access permissions. IAM ensures that the right users can access the right resources, even in complex hybrid IT environments. IAM covers a range of areas, including identity lifecycle management, access control, authentication, and authorization.
Why is IAM important and what are its benefits?
IAM (Identity and Access Management) is crucial in ensuring the security, compliance, and operational efficiency of organizations. It helps IT staff streamline user access management, reducing administrative burden and potential errors. For end-users, IAM simplifies the user experience by unifying accounts and credentials, enabling SSO, and providing secure access to resources across the organization. In addition, IAM solutions help organizations meet compliance regulations and prevent data breaches.
How can IAM solutions help with modern cybersecurity requirements?
IAM solutions are essential in reducing the risk of security incidents and data breaches through the enforcement of strong authentication and authorization policies. Additionally, IAM solutions facilitate quick and effective detection and response to security incidents. By centrally managing all resources, IAM ensures protection against unauthorized access and automates user access management, even in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud structures.
How do IAM solutions help with compliance and regulatory requirements?
IAM solutions provide centralized control over user access, simplifying access policy management and user activity monitoring for organizations, while simultaneously promoting regulatory compliance adherence standards such as HIPAA, GDPR, and SOX. Additionally, IAM solutions provide an audit trail of user activity, making compliance tracking more manageable. The implementation of IAM solutions allows organizatinos to enhance their system control and visibility, ensuring their regulatory compliance.
What is the difference between "Identity and Access Management" and "Identity-as-a-Service"?
IAM is the set of policies and technologies that manage digital identities and resource access, and aims to limit resource access to authorized individuals, whereas IDaaS is a cloud-based IAM implementation that provides identity management as a service.
What are the different types of IAM solutions?
There are three types of IAM solutions available: hybrid IAM, traditional on-prem IAM, and IDaaS. Hybrid IAM solutions combine the benefits of both on-premises and cloud-based solutions so it can provide newer applications and services. Traditional on-premises IAM solutions offer full control over security but may require more maintenance. IDaaS solutions are fully cloud-based and offer easy scalability but may be unsuitable for businesses with rigorous security requirements.
