Press Release   •   Jan 24, 2017 15:18 EST


Identity and access management (IAM) is a security framework which ensures secure access to end users across multiple applications. At present, integration of IAM with cloud is gaining pace owing to its low cost and enhanced security. Cloud identity and access management (IAM) is an approach to revamp the traditional IT security environment by offering IAM solutions over the cloud. Cloud IAM helps large as well as small organizations to secure their IT infrastructure and patents & intellectual properties (IP) in a cost-effective manner.

Cloud IAM offers various services such as user provisioning, access management, multi-factor authentication, directory services, single sign-on (SSO), governance & compliance management and password management. Several organizations have adopted cloud IAM to improve customer engagement, acquisition and retention.

A well-designed cloud IAM system reduces the cost incurred due to cyber-attacks by enabling better information sharing and enhanced data privacy. In addition, cloud IAM services reduce cyber-attacks and data breaches by implementing various IAM services, such as single sign-on (SSO) and user provisioning and others.
