Unlock low-risk uses of IDaaS and cloud-based IAM solutions

The adoption of cloud platforms, applications and services has major implications for identity and access management (IAM) leaders. To support SaaS, platform as a service (PaaS) and IaaS requirements, most IAM organizations will need to adopt new cloud-delivered options. As digital transformation amplifies identities and interactions, IAM leaders will also need to craft specific planning, governance and solution architecture strategies.

Integrate Your Cloud Security Posture With Identity and Access Management

Cloud services can become a vulnerability to an organization’s threat protection and data security strategy if mishandled. Although IAM programs protect the front door of sanctioned applications, they do not protect against unsanctioned applications. This is where cloud access security brokers (CASBs) can bridge the gap.
