Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting and Identity-as-a Service (IDaaS)

By: IBM
IBM

Identity-as-a-service (IDaaS) is the cloud alternative to maintaining identity and access management (IAM) products on-premise. Fully featured IDaaS offers authentication, access control, single sign-on (SSO), provisioning and password management, infrastructure and directory management, reporting, alerting, and monitoring services, and is hosted, managed, and delivered as a cloud-based service.

IDaaS is relevant to public and private sector organizations that are prepared to allow their IAM services to be managed and maintained from the cloud, and are willing to work with a third-party service provider. Data protection regulations, risk, and security concerns are commonly cited as reasons for not going ahead, but a growing number of CIOs and CISOs consider the business risk to be acceptable and are building their IDaaS strategies.
