With the exploding adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, enterprise IT is fundamentally changing. While on-demand services provide tremendous ROI, they also introduce new challenges that must be overcome to truly capitalize on their potential. Identity management problems such as controlling who is granted access to which applications and data and how to control access to these applications leveraging on premise directories such as Active Directory, have become increasingly important. Single Sign-On and user management solutions that are optimized for the cloud are necessary to help address these challenges. This whitepaper presents the eight biggest identity and access management (IAM) challenges associated with adopting and deploying cloud and SaaS applications, and discusses best practices for addressing each of them.
Selecting the right single sign-on solution (SSO) for your organization can be a daunting task. Competing solutions offer varying levels of application support, management overhead, and potentially confusing (and counter- productive) cost structures. But the upside in terms of improved security, manageability and user productivity enhancements provided by the right SSO solution can be dramatic.
The questions contained within are intended to help you collect and organize the critical information you need to make a well-informed decision for your organization. Please use them as a guide during your due diligence and vendor selection process. Please download the white paper to learn more.
A major shift has occurred with Identity and Access Management (IAM) in the past few years. Organizations have realized that the traditional approach to IAM doesn't work. It doesn't work because IT doesn't have the context to make the decisions around access. It's the lines of business that have the intelligence and business context to make decisions about Identity and Access Management.
For most companies, Active Directory (AD) or LDAP and play the central role in coordinating identity and access management policies.
Read this whitepaper to learn how to eliminate the pitfalls that come with trying to build and manage multiple on-premises Active Directory integrations yourself.

Discover the hidden dangers posed by privileged users and the damages they have caused. This webcast features two senior analysts from Burton Group Identity and Privacy Strategies, as well as IBM identity and access management solutions address this security and compliance challenge.
Although roles-based access control (RBAC) has been the subject of much interest in the past, experience with it has been mostly disappointing. The challenge of discovering established roles, defining new roles according to business need, connecting roles properly to the IT infrastructure, ensuring that they meet all compliance requirements, and managing roles through their natural lifecycles has, until now, proved to be too complicated and cumbersome to be practical.
Every large enterprise has employees who need some level of access to its critical information resources, and many also provide a wide variety of types and levels of access to contractors, partners, vendors, and customers. Each of these points of access represents a source of potential business and compliance risk.
Listen in as Andras Cser, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, speaks about trends he is seeing in the Identity & Access Management (IAM) market, and specifically about the challenges and benefits of user provisioning.

"Watch the On-Demand webinar to hear Centrify's Chief Product Officer, Bill Mann and Forrester Principal Analyst, Chase Cunningham in a lively discussion how Zero Trust concepts can be applied to Identity and Access Management.
Web Services are emerging as the preeminent method for program-to-program communication across corporate networks as well as the Internet. Securing web Services has been a challenge until recently, as typical Web authentication and authorization techniques employed browser-to-server architectures (not program-to-program). This resulted in user identity ending at the Web Application Server, forcing the Web Services Provider to trust blindly that the Web Services Requester had established identity and trust with the end user.
With the success of single sign-on (SSO) inside the enterprise, users are calling for interoperability outside of the enterprise’s security domain to outsourced services, including business process outsourcing (BPO) and software as a service (SaaS) providers, and trading partners, as well as within the enterprise to affiliates and subsidiaries.

"It’s important to understand the role that an Identity platform plays in modern enterprise IT. In the past, Identity and Access Management systems were an afterthought. They were put into place after making many of your other architectural decisions. With the move to web, cloud and mobile, IAM has become a key variable in hardware and software deployment, as well as in operational strategy.
This webinar will reveal why leveraging an IAM platform, built as a single cloud-based platform for security across on-prem and cloud, can solve these issues."
"The enterprise cloud revolution is here. IT organizations everywhere, from small and mid-sized to Fortune 500 companies, are moving from on-premises software to on-demand, cloud-based services.
