Identity and Access Management Solutions
Identity as a Service
IDaaS provides support and services to help maintain identity and access management (IAM) and ensure it is highly available and functioning properly, whether users are trying to access data and applications in the cloud, hosted or on-premises.
Why Your Company Needs IDaaS
As cyberthreats have grown in prevalence and sophistication, security has become even more important within the IT landscape. Our IDaaS solution focuses on user experience and helps manage user logins and passwords across interconnected environments and devices to ensure secure access to applications and data.
Importance of Identity and Access Management
Managing user logins and passwords is an increasingly complex endeavor that poses major risks for businesses. Here are a few important factors to consider when deciding whether to implement IDaaS:
The average user today has up to 80 passwords, according to NordPass. Most of these passwords won’t be discrete and are likely used across multiple services, which weakens an organization’s security.
The amount of user identities that must be managed by the IT department directly correlates to the threat landscape. The more logins and passwords that users maintain the greater the risk—especially as employees come and go.
Nearly 80% of data breaches are caused by human error, and a significant portion of breaches involve user credentials, often affecting multiple platforms.
As users continue to rely more and more on mobile devices, identity management becomes increasingly complex.

Implementation of Identity and Access Management
Preventing these attacks comes down to more than password enforcement, which is why Identity as a Service is so crucial. The goal of IDaaS is three-fold:
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
One of the most common ways identity is managed is through MFA. This method secures sensitive information and fully safeguards devices via token-based protection. Typically, two or more methods of identification are required to be considered two-factor authentication. These methods involve:
Single Sign On (SSO)
SSO allows the user to use one username and password to access multiple applications. Benefits of this approach include:
SSO should always be used in conjunction with MFA to avoid security breaches.
Compatible Solutions for IDaaS
These services are directly tied to an individual and require authentication. For example, IDaaS can be used in conjunction with Microsoft 365 and Desktop as a Service.
Location or Platform-Based Services
These services are directly tied to resources, like servers, networks or storage. For example, this includes cloud solutions like SD-WAN, Backup as a Service or Disaster Recovery as a Service.
