Cloud Identity Essentials: How Companies Benefit from Identity and Access Management

Today’s enterprise companies are rapidly transitioning to a hybrid, on-demand, on-premises infrastructure. The ability to control who has access to applications in your enterprise has become increasingly important—and complex.

The trends that are emerging from IT modernization are similar in countries throughout the world, but for European and Middle Eastern / African (EMEA) companies, there are some unique challenges that come along with this evolution.

Having a robust, secure, and well-defined identity and access management (IAM) program can protect your organization from intrusion or unlawful access, ensure your users aren’t accidentally accessing data they shouldn’t be, and better secure your data and assets. With the right IAM provider, organizations can realize tremendous time-saving, efficiency-building, and security-boosting benefits—no matter where you operate.
