Benefits of Migrating from Web Access Management (WAM)
The proliferation of applications like Salesforce, Zoom, and Slack has enabled organizations to better serve their employees and customers while accelerating their cloud adoption. However, many companies adopting the cloud will still keep some of their mission-critical applications hosted on-premises, creating hybrid IT environments that require consistent security, identity, and access control. Many organizations rely on legacy Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions hosted on-premises – also known as Web Access Management (WAM), that are not built for cloud scale and to deliver unified access the Hybrid IT. Enterprises can instead rely on the Okta Identity Cloud platform and Okta Access Gateway to support their Hybrid IT access.
