A cloud identity platform is a fundamental tool that every organization needs to keep its cloud or hybrid networks safe from cyberattacks.
Organizations need to keep their sensitive data secure with identity management. Cloud networks are exceptionally prone to online attacks because they have multiple endpoints with no defined perimeter and a shared responsibility model.
But at the same time, cloud identity management platforms also help speed up safe access to data and other business resources. This can improve productivity by always giving employees, contractors, auditors, etc. access to the resources they need. In addition, administrators can grant temporary access to contractors and guests rapidly without second-guessing if it is secure.
Identity management is also vital for scaling operations. It can make it easy for administrators to onboard, for example, a new employee and quickly give them access to the data they’re authorized to use.
Identity management platforms automate almost every aspect of identity and access control. This can free up your IT personnel and IAM leaders for more valuable tasks that have a bigger impact on your organization.
The bottom line is that cloud identity management can help secure an enterprise’s network — without sacrificing productivity and efficiency.
