Having an independent and trusted IAM provider as well as platform in place would really support Huawei during this time as it would provide the CyberSecurity Analysts with that independent assurance on who accessed their most critical information assets (equipment, networks and systems). Independent Assurance for identity and access management is a business decision executive leadership are now making to protect themselves and provide assurance during investigations and eDiscovery cases.
