Putting The “I” in Identity: How Identity Technology Fuels the Un-Carrier Revolution

Top 10 Identity and Access Management Solution Companies - 2020

The identity and access management (IAM) space is constantly evolving, and the pace of transformation is only accelerating as new security threats arise, expectations increase for streamlined and transparent experiences, and IT environments grow more complex to support business initiatives like cloud adoption.

IAM is the cornerstone to any successful security program, and this is especially true when building in the cloud. After all, with identity being the “new perimeter,” it is critical to have a solid understanding of an organization’s cloud’s IAM capabilities—that’s often the only way to provide access to services and resources. It is also vital that companies make extensive use of those capabilities to secure access as much as possible.

While it is common for companies to leverage single sign-on (SSO) solutions to provision access into public cloud platforms and resources, the focus has traditionally been on administrative users. An example use-case would include granting Active Directory users access to the AWS console through Ping or Okta. Increasingly, companies are also providing cloud access to non-people identities such as applications, services, and other compute resources.

The cloud IAM models and capabilities are always changing – as such, building least privilege permissions is an ongoing task. Continuously reviewing your existing IAM policies and permissions, and recertifying the data access that you’re granting to your identities is not just a good idea, it is becoming critical. In addition, leveraging the insights provided by your IAM analytics and AI/ML solutions to discover unused privileges, over-permissioned identities, and other potential policy violations can provide a step change in your ability to identify and reduce IAM risks. With the rapid pace of change and increasing scope of identity, it’s hard to stay on the cutting edge of trends in the IAM space. IT and cybersecurity professionals should consider how these developing and evolving IAM trends could reduce risks and provide better data protection.
