Secure access into applications and identity management is a complex and important topic. Many organizations struggle to keep up with IAM and seek a better solution. Deploying IAM as a cloud-based IDaaS solution solves the challenges of organizations facing increasing complexity, costs, and security compliance requirements. IDaaS lowers TCO, simplifies architecture, improves security and compliance, and provides seamless SSO integration for on-premises, SaaS, and mobile applications. The focus of this book is learning what IDaaS provides, why it benefits organizations, and how to implement it for your applications. A great deal of attention is given to explain IAM and cloud computing so you understand the context and benefits of a cloud-based IAM solution, which is IDaaS. Note: Cloud Identity is IBM's IDaaS offering, and this book uses IDaaS and Cloud Identity interchangeably. Via Cloud Identity, organizations gain robust governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), identity governance and administration (IGA), and security, while users enjoy self-service registration and seamless SSO access into the applications they need.
