Anything that has to be trusted has an identity. An Identity is a means by which an Entity can consistently and comprehensively be identified as unique. An Entity represents the discrete types that will have an Identity; these are people, devices, code, organizations and agents.
IAM is about managing identities and leveraging directory services to provide access control. Perimeter IAM solutions have matured over the last 10 years, however there was no full adoption across industry vectors thus there is more still to be done to ensure compliance with regulatory compliance and risk. This is even more apparent when issues are encountered when extending an organization’s identity into the cloud. I’curity provides insight into assessing an organization identity posture, its readiness to conduct cloud-based Identity, Entitlement, and Access Management (IdEA).
We provide identity solutions within the trusted network and untrusted networks that traverse the internet/cloud. Untrusted IAM solutions (Federated Identity) systems are complex but have a massive potential that needs to be unlocked to enable businesses to securely and conveniently engage with partners (B2B) and customers (B2C). The concepts behind IdEA used on premise require fundamental changes in thinking when implementing a cloud environment, particularly splitting it into three discrete functions, Identity, Entitlement, and Authorization/Access Management.
