Modern Identity Management Series – Identity Security for SaaS Apps

Is your organization currently using SaaS or going through a digital transformation? The answer to this question is most likely “Yes.” According to Gartner, 2021 will see an increase in SaaS spending by 23%, increasing the total spend to $332 billion. As organizations become more remote and flexible, many are switching to the cloud to manage their ever-changing workspace; and identity management is no different.

However, this newfound flexibility has given rise to a new array of challenges facing IT and security teams:

  • Unsanctioned Apps – Employees integrating sensitive data into SaaS apps with unrestricted assets
  • Shadow IT – How does IT gain visibility into and control over these unsanctioned IT apps?
  • Increased Password (Re)Usage – As employees gain access to more SaaS apps, over 60% reuse passwords for most of their accounts
  • Wasteful Spending – Overprovisioning may lead to wasteful spending on underused or entirely unused licenses

With cloud-based platforms such as SailPoint IdentityNow and Microsoft Azure, it’s never been easier to tackle these new challenges. Organizations are taking advantage of IdentityNow and Azure for a modern approach to Identity and Access Management (IAM). Without tighter IAM controls it’s easy to lose track of who has access to what.

Watch for a look into how companies are handling the digital transformation to the cloud and a demo showing how SailPoint IdentityNow and Microsoft Azure tackle the challenges.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Securely enable access to cloud and on-prem applications and ensure that access is compliant with regulatory requirements
  • Easily report on and certify who has access to what
  • Improve compliance by identifying unsanctioned applications and put governance controls in place
  • Reduce the risk of having sensitive data stored in unsecured applications
  • Manage all identities, not just identities in core enterprise applications
  • Control authentication with best-in-class Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
