How to take a strategic approach to cloud-based IAM – straightforward, comprehensive, compliant and secure
Cloud IAM, or IDaaS, is a rapidly growing market segment. This growth is driven by a variety of business cases, ranging from operational advantages and better support for employees accessing cloud services to the flexible integration of business partners and consumers in the age of digital transformation. Organizations need to understand their challenges, the potential of Cloud IAM, and what Cloud IAM must provide in functionality for addressing these challenges.
Cloud IAM (Identity and Access Management) is on the rise, and it is more than just Single Sign-On. Managing user journeys, directory functionality, access control, and governance is mandatory. Identity and access governance is a key topic in most organizations and, just as with identity provisioning, it does not become obsolete when making the shift to Cloud IAM.
In this KuppingerCole Webinar, you will hear about:
- Understanding your Cloud IAM challenges
- How to consider the big picture; thinking beyond SSO solo projects
- Where to start an effective IAM program, balancing the users’ needs with security and compliance requirements
- What approach will ensure a straightforward deployment and make solutions usable for business and technical staff
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will explain the various customer challenges that drive the journey towards Cloud IAM. He will show the importance of Cloud IAM solutions supporting the reality of hybrid IT environments and will define the requirements and elements of a comprehensive Cloud IAM solution.
In the second part of the webinar, Rick Weinberg, Senior Director Market and Product Strategy at SailPoint, will point out why companies should start their IDaaS journey from the identity governance point of view to make sure the management of user access is consistently aligned to the business needs. He will show the benefits of SailPoint’s IdentityNow Cloud IAM solution and how it enables organizations to establish visibility, control and automation of access to users, apps and data. And it is done across cloud and on-premises applications to optimize enterprise security while providing a business friendly user experience that can empower users to govern effectively with convenience.
