Modern Identity Management Series – Identity Security for SaaS Apps



Published
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.
