How to easily expand Identity & Access Management to the Cloud

Hybrid IT needs hybrid IAM for employees, partners and customers

Trying to find the right access security solution has always been a complex task. It is, however, even more challenging when the existing web access management solution is not sufficient anymore.

Many large enterprises operate with a glut of access security platforms and tools that each service a specific silo of applications and resources. Most are proprietary, and many have expensive and time-consuming agent-based architectures. In addition, because they are usually very tightly connected to the applications, it is a hard task to move them to the cloud or access them remotely. Traditional IAM systems were simply not designed to secure apps outside the corporate firewalls.

Modern access management supports secure online access from any device via one single sign-on (SSO) solution. It doesn’t matter if applications are being deployed either on-premises, in a private or in a public cloud, thanks to a centralized and federated gateway the level of control always remains the same. It also enables developers to work with latest identity standards such as OAuth and OpenID Connect in order to support identity for multiple clouds and mobile environments in various combinations. And all of this, thanks to easy integration, without companies having to alter their existing IT infrastructures.

This webinar covers information about

  • Extending Your IAM infrastructure to the cloud
  • How to select the right IAM solution to match individual business needs
  • Ensuring access management solutions protect web and mobile apps as well as APIs
  • Ways to remotely and simultaneously protect access for employees, partners and customers
