Organizations are faced with providing secure authentication, authorization, and Single Sign On (SSO) access to thousands of users accessing hundreds of disparate applications. Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the userís identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software.

Traditional IAM supports on-premises applications, but its ability to support Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications, mobile computing, and new technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is limited. Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps.

Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-based SaaS applications, Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) resources, mobile, Big Data, and the IoT, IDaaS provides end-to-end enterprise IAM services. Via the cloud, organizations gain simplified IT architecture, faster deployments, lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and enhanced capabilities enabling digital transformation
