Konica Minolta Business Solutions helps companies to reap the benefits of digitalisation by selecting suitable IT products.
In order to control the access rights of employees securely and efficiently, even in the networked workplace, a suitable platform for the management of user accounts and authorisations is necessary. As an expert in identity and access management (IAM), tenfold Software will support Konica Minolta customers in implementing a secure IT environment in the future. The importance of IAM for the digital working world will be highlighted by both companies at a joint webinar on 17 November, which will take place as part of Konica Minolta's "BIT for BIT" series.
Customised solutions for digital working
In addition to new potentials, the digital transformation also brings challenges and threats for companies. In order to meet the increasing demands, such as those brought about by the crisis of the past two years, companies need the right partner for smart office solutions. With a broad product portfolio ranging from printing systems to business software, Konica Minolta supports companies for an intelligently networked workplace.
The correct configuration of access rights is crucial for the security of the company network and the success of a modern working environment. For IT administrators, however, the processes required for this are associated with considerable effort: All user accounts have to be created manually and adjusted on an ongoing basis. This is a problem for many companies. With the help of tenfold Access Management, Konica Minolta customers will be able to automate their authorisation management to a large extent in the future.
Konica Minolta knows the need for IAM software only too well. "We see time and again how much time companies invest in the manual administration of user accounts and access rights, and the security gaps this creates," says Bernd Goger, Director Business Unit ITS at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Deutschland GmbH. "With tenfold, we can offer our customers an efficient solution that not only helps protect against data leaks and cyber attacks, but also saves time for the responsible specialists."
Information security for SMEs
tenfold is pleased to have Konica Minolta as a partner with a comprehensive view of the digital workplace and an in-depth understanding of the needs of businesses. Its many years of experience as an expert in digital working allow Konica Minolta to offer customers solutions that fit their individual requirements exactly. Especially in the area of user and authorisation management, the selection of the right provider is of central importance so that companies can automate processes quickly and avoid unnecessary costs due to a lengthy start-up.
With its quick installation and numerous prefabricated interfaces, tenfold has specialised particularly in IAM for medium-sized organisations. Helmut Semmelmayer, Senior Manager Channel Sales at tenfold, explains what is important in practice: "An IAM solution must reduce the effort in user administration and not merely shift it to another system. To automate these processes, you need the right technology, but you also need to know the daily work of IT admins and where the biggest problem areas are. The experience Konica Minolta brings as a digitalisation expert makes them a strong and valuable partner for us."
BIT for BIT: Impetus for companies
To help companies that want to increase their digital engagement, Konica Minolta is highlighting topics around cloud services, modern working and information security in the free webinar series "BIT for BIT". In a joint session, tenfold Software will also contribute its expertise in the field of identity and access management: On 17 November, Wilhelm Bergmann, Senior System Engineer at Konica Minolta, and Patryk Stachowiak, Partner Account Manager at tenfold, will jointly talk about the most important reasons for Identity & Access Management.
