SaaS-delivered IAM or IAM as a Service is called IDaaS
With rapid digital transformations, moving to the cloud is inevitable for organizations. But when you move everything to the cloud, do you know how safe it is? You got to move beyond the legacy network boundaries, break the fence of the traditional Identity and Access Management IAM, and embrace solutions that’ll strongly protect the identities and access services.
Without the right security solution, you will encounter
The ultimate objective of Identity security must be ensuring the right access of apps, files, or other data to the right people at the right time.
IDaaS provides a Cloud-based authentication service. Just like SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), Identity-as-a-Service or IDaaS is also an application delivery model that allows users to connect to various touchpoints and use identity management services from the cloud. Identity, security, and all other features of access management are delivered to you through a third-party service provider.
When IAM deals with user authentication, security, and managing digital identities, roles & privileges that are within the applications, enterprise network, and digital services, IDaaS addresses both internal and external system identities (Workforce and Customer IAM)
First things first, IDaaS is a Software as a service IAM – that are cost-effective for businesses of all sizes. Dealing with an in-house IAM infrastructure will be complicated and expensive for you.
However, when you have IDaaS, security, configuration, maintenance, and deployment are all sorted.
With the surge in the usage of SaaS applications, managing identities and protecting organizational assets will be complicated for you. Determining the right user and granting access to the right identity to various applications is a daunting task now. You cannot take any chances and compromise on access and control as that’d expose the assets, give space for threats, breaches, and malicious attacks, and lead to great security and reputation loss for the business.
When you want a solution or an application to be introduced in the market, perform a ground test with real-time customers and users, without any compromise on the security aspects, then IDaaS is the ideal solution.
Even when you have identity and security needs that are beyond IAM SaaS capabilities, we provide you with comprehensive IAM deployment choices in IDaaS, to private cloud-based services, or IAM deployed on-prem based on your business needs.
Safeguards your business against breaches at every access point with MFA (Multi-factor authentication)
Theft occurs due to weak access management or unauthorized use of credentials.
Therefore, with IDaaS, you can strengthen and secure identity credentials, identity data, and access to privileged users. We will help you enforce policies with regard to credential management and introduce stronger and adaptive authentication such as MFA
For instance: when a user registers for a service, the user should go through identity verification, and identity proofing workflows followed by multi-factor authentication (One-time password/OTP), and finally biometrics or passwordless authentication for authorized users. The IDaaS solution we provide will have all these embedded into your systems. With these identity services, to avoid any risk, we’d also use Single Sign-on (SSO) for giving the users a single and a strong identity for logging in and accessing across the platforms.
Meets compliance with regulations.
For regulating compliance, it is important and crucial for businesses to maintain transparency in their data practices. And self-service account management is possible only through IDaaS or Software-as-a-service IAM.
Improves User Experience with a consistent and simple SSO (Single Sign-on)
The usability and customer experience for your marketing team are also sorted with IDaaS solutions. You can provide your customers simple and easy registration process, intuitive sign-up, and authentication steps. Through Single Sign-On or SSO, they can toggle between various applications without having to go through a long login process.
Frequent and easy-to-consume functional application upgrades with cloud-native features
With complicated IAM built on various standards (SAML, OAuth, WS-Federation, OpenID Connect) , and the evolving standards & implementations, it will be a daunting experience for organizations to manage and keep up with the pace. Expertise on demand is the best solution for the ever-changing needs of businesses.
