The systems of identification and access control to information resources of the enterprise - IDM (the market of Russia)

The Russian companies to use of access control systems stimulate growth of cyber crime and use by malefactors of "holes" in cybersecurity, a possible exit of information systems for perimeter of the enterprises. Among the most important examples: the RBS system and Internet banking, outsourcing, work of the enterprises in clusters of "electronic business". New risks create also cloud computing, the principle of BYOD, etc. IDM solutions mean existence of a full-scale corporate role model of users. In it all data assets of the enterprise are considered and also business roles of personnel and an order of access for each of them to each asset are described.

The industry demand of IdM-solutions correlates with demand of cybersecurity solutions in general. According to results of a research of Jet Infosystems company, an access control system are most demanded in financial institutions (31% of all implementations). At the same time in the industry small recession of interest in IdM-solutions is observed: for the last 5 years the number of projects decreased by 8%. It is caused by the fact that the most part of financial institutions already implemented similar products.

The second place on number of implementations is taken by the enterprises of public sector (17%). Unlike financial companies, increase in their interest in IdM-projects is explained by state policy of import substitution and in general the accruing tendency to informatization of public industries.

The oil and gas companies close top three. For the considered period the number of projects in this industry was reduced more than twice. Such dynamics is connected first of all with the high number of earlier implemented implementations: during 2004-2008 the companies of this sector actively implemented access control systems, and their share in the total number of projects made essential 29%. For 2019 the tendency to migration from one product on another was outlined, but initial implementations still prevail.

"Growth of implementations of access control systems in the next 3 years will remain. It is connected, on the one hand, with the advent of demand for IdM-solutions in new sectors, with another – with increase in demand for cloud IdM-solutions. As of November, 2019 similar projects make about 2% of the total number of all implementations, but we expect growth in this segment of the market. Also you should not forget about a course towards import substitution to which state companies adhere. In recent years domestic developers significantly promoted on the way of creation of IdM therefore they were equal to foreign by the number of implementations",
