"To cloud or not to cloud?" - this is no longer the question. It is rather to what extent and depth enterprises leverage cloud computing. With identity and access management (IAM) solutions for their internal IT systems, enterprises have achieved a high level of security, transparency and compliance. They do not want to go back to the old days of erratic and insecure identity management when they have to deal with multiple cloud providers and their proprietary user management interfaces.

Integrating and maintaining each cloud application individually within the enterprise IAM solution is no real alternative. Obviously, building a pure Cloud IAM besides the existing on-site IAM is also not the most elegant way to solve the challenge. The target should be to use an approach that seamlessly connects the enterprise IAM solution with a multitude of cloud services in a standardized, centralized way.

Atos, the cloud service provider and vendor of the DirX IAM product suite, is launching a cloud service offering an identity federation hub that seamlessly connects enterprise identity management services through a single and reliable channel with services in public, hybrid and private clouds. This allows enterprises to extend identity management, access governance and SSO to services in the cloud in a cost-effective and efficient way.

In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will talk about architectural approaches for extending IAM to the Cloud. He will show variants for hybrid IAM and IAG architectures which allow managing all identities and access in a consistent way.

Following Martin, Gerrit Pot and Ulrich Häring from Atos unveil the new Atos Identity Federation Hub cloud service and illustrate how the service helps enterprises to scale the level of security, transparency and compliance into the cloud.
