What is NetGuard Identity Access Manager (IAM)?
Nokia NetGuard Identity Access Manager (IAM) is a Privileged Access Management (PAM) / Privileged Identity Management (PIM) application that secures physical or virtual network functions and resources.
NetGuard IAM acts as a centralized security gateway that allows you to control, monitor and audit privileged access to all mission-critical network and IT systems through a single pane of glass. It provides unified identity access control and single sign-on with centralized policy management.

How NetGuard IAM supports 5G security and CSPs
The only solution designed for communication service providers (CSPs), NetGuard IAM delivers unmatched network-wide scalability, high availability, supporting any type of network element, virtual network function or data center infrastructure.
NetGuard IAM enforces robust and consistent 5G security policies with automated telco security measures such as automated password rotation of all privileged credentials in your 5G network following pre-defined password syntax rules.
How NetGuard Identity Access Management handles telco user access
User access can be configured for an individual network resource or a group of network resources using either dynamic or static network resource groups. Users can access the network with either shared service accounts or dedicated named user accounts provisioned in the network by NetGuard IAM itself.
Advanced Telco User Access Management Capabilities
The NetGuard Machine-to-Machine (M2M) module allows a customer to remove privileged credentials from scripts and applications. The M2M module credentials are retrieved at run time in a secure fashion from the backend NetGuard IAM application server.
With our Access Governance Module (AGM) you can automatically give end-users the ability to request access to network resources, then notify the appropriate network resource owner for approval or rejection. This eliminates administration overhead by giving all users of the application functionality to self-govern the access. AGM workflows can be customized as needed to meet the corporate access governance or procedural guidelines.
How NetGuard IAM is protecting today's and tomorrow's 5G telecom networks
Nokia NetGuard Identity Access Manager can be offered as an integrated software module of Nokia's telco-centric XDR solution, called NetGuard Cybersecurity Dome - an industry-leading software powered by machine learning, analytics and automation. Which provides extensive visibility and insight into the nature of security threats, and drives intelligent, automated responses.
It helps to protect physical and virtual network assets while providing ubiquitous Identity and Access Management to infrastructure, resources, and systems for traditional, virtualized, cloud-based and Software Defined Networks (SDN).
