Integrate Smartly with Single Connection
In lieu of introducing technology, businesses make costly investments by creating connections between IAM systems and various applications. Such connections may bring ease in a few aspects of business, but the overall system becomes cluttered.
Technology disruption points at simplification, integration and merger of access criteria with unanimous connectivity.
- Establishing minimal, rock-solid connection between cloud and On-premise IdM systems.
- Diffuses complexity of IT systems for achieving efficient systems and interfaces.
- Integrates and enables seamless cloud adoption with a unified port for all user activities.
How cloud identity management shifts the process of authentication and authorization to the cloud? Since the past few years many organizations are trying to innovate in the space of Identity Management, and much of the efforts have taken place in the cloud, i.e., Cloud Identity Management. It is nothing but to shift the process of authentication and authorization to the cloud. Cloud Identity Management is not just a simple web app SSO solution. It can be imagined as a next generation of IAM which is close to a holistic shift of identity provision in the cloud space. It is called DaaS, it is a combination of the traditional on-prem and legacy solutions, Active Directory and LDAP or lightweight directory access protocol. The directory service is highly optimized to be used across any device, with any IT or web based application, on any operating system, and in the cloud, remote resources or on-prem. There are some modern cloud IAM solutions such as Identity Bridge which focus on being multiprotocol ready for enabling virtually any kind of IT resource to connect in their native authentication language. You can now use cloud identity management solution such as DaaS and Identity Bridge in the following manner: • Securely connect employees, IT applications (on Prem or on the cloud), their devices and networks. • Connect your Cloud Service (hosted at AWS, Google Cloud or elsewhere) to your existing ID or LDAP user Store. • Bring forward your existing AD or LDAP directory to the cloud. • Manage your Windows, Linux and Mac desktops, laptops and servers without bothering about their location. • Connect multiple users to applications that use LDAP or SAML based authentication. • Using cloud radius service you can now manage user access to Wi-Fi networks securely. • Application-level and system based multi-factor authentication (2FA) is now very much a reality. • Enjoy zero management overhead, improved security and better management of users. There is more than one reason to shift to cloud identity management, but the obvious ones are that it is crucial for your organization and can certainly influence the productivity of your employees. Not just that, but also the security of your organization is well managed by it. Moreover, you have freedom to choose any technology solution you want. With more and more users adding up to your cloud account their Identity management is crucial. DaaS is the next in line solution to your business needs. The scaling up or down of your users is best managed in cloud, but moving to cloud identity management is also the need of the hour. If you are in it then you are future ready. Moving to cloud has many advantages such as saving your user base being lost in case of a disaster (natural or technical). This minimizes downtime and the costs associated with such an event. It helps immensely in your business continuity. Besides scaling and security there is another big issue and that is cost. Your on prem systems may or may not handle the burgeoning user base. If you increase your hardware then it would be rather on the costlier side. Cloud helps you to get better results by keeping the costs down.
