In an increasing digital environment, balancing the efficiency and security of business and IT solutions is of utmost importance. As Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a cornerstone of Information Security, providing controlled access to systems and applications is crucial to any company. On the other hand, the number and variety of applications and systems that people need to access increases rapidly, hence an equal high demand for solutions that are easy-to-use and efficient. Being able to provide secure, compliant and efficient access control solutions in a complex IT and business environment is therefore highly important for ASML to achieve its business objectives.

Are you energized by acting as a business partner in order to achieve these business objectives while being in control? ASML’s Risk & Business Assurance (R&BA) department provides state-of-the-art expertise, insights and assurance which enables ASML to achieve its objectives, while managing business risks in a responsible way.

Within R&BA, we are looking for a Product Owner of Access Control. We define Access Control as all capabilities that identify and manage their ways to authenticate as less intrusively as possible. The agile team is part of the IAM Agile Release Train in which all ASML central IAM services are provided. The agile team develops and maintains products and services in the following areas:

  • Identity Verification: identifying an identity through the act of authentication.
  • Adaptive & Strong Authentication: based on actual conditions (risks, behavior) adapt the required authentication strength to be as non-intrusive as possible.
  • Credential Management: support (self) management of credentials such as (re-) enrollment, reset, regular renewal, etc.
  • PKI / Certificate Management: assignment and (real time) verification of public key based certificates.
  • Single Sign-On: Support access to multiple resources by only authenticating once, remembering the strength of the authentication and requiring step-up when needed.
