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
