Graph Technology in Identity and Access Management Systems
The ever-changing team roles and permissions to resources can put a strain on Identity and Access Management systems that rely on relational databases, causing security vulnerabilities. Graph databases provide exactly what IAM systems need - data model adaptability and flexibility, thus considerably reducing the vulnerabilities.
This whitepaper talks about the following advantages of graph technology and Memgraph in IAM systems:
- Initial modeling and subsequent changes to the model are easier, as well as querying the data in real-time
- Graphs are equipped to handle frequent changes in hierarchies and identities
- Memgraph pin-points system vulnerabilities the second they appear with triggers that reinitiate real-time analysis with dynamic algorithms
- Memgraph allows import from various sources, real-time and static
