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.

Okta’s extensive experience in the IAM market, and our history in the EMEA market specifically, gives us a unique insight into these problems. And to help share our knowledge, we’ve written Cloud Identity Essentials – How Companies Benefit from Identity and Access Management (IAM). This e-book is an IAM resource that answers the common questions that dominate conversations within IT departments and leadership teams.

The e-book’s five chapters walk through the common challenges and risks of legacy IAM services, offering real-life examples of how modern IT departments can benefit from the support of a powerful IAM solution. It also provides actionable advice on what features to look for when choosing a solution that’s right for your organization. Our aim is to leave  you with an understanding of how IAM can support building a secure and scalable, modern IT environment.

Download and read the full e-guide, Cloud Identity Essentials–How Companies Benefit from Identity and Access Management (IAM) to learn which practices make for a genuinely best-in-class IAM program in a modern enterprise environment.
