Cloud Identity Services
Managing identities across all applications is a huge challenge for organizations. Security and management challenges are increasing as businesses expand in using:
- More applications
- More cloud services
- Various types of users
A solution to adopt, deploy, secure and manage these Cloud services becomes a necessity.
What is Identity & Access Management (IAM)?
Identity management manages individual identities, their authentication, authorization, roles and permissions within, across and outside the enterprise boundaries with the goal of increasing security and productivity while decreasing cost, downtime, and repetitive tasks.
Access management ensures that only authorized users are granted access to applications in order to protect confidentiality, integrity and availability.
In essence it contains the following 3 elements:
- Management of the identity of a user, system or process.
- Granting and controlling secure access to a user, system or process to a resource, which can be a file, application, transaction or resource.
- Check which authorizations are granted to what identities and when they were effectuated.
Access control brings the 3 elements together.
- Identity – Who are you?
- Authentication – Proof that you are who you say you are.
- Authorization – What are you allowed to do?
