IDaaS Buyer's Guide

September 21, 2020

The rapid rise in SaaS adoption and an increasingly mobile workforce has made old security models based on a strong perimeter defense obsolete. By extension, on-premises Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions have followed suit and are increasingly giving way to Identity and Access as a Service (IDaaS).

“Trust but verify,” a security model that relied on well-defined network boundaries, has sunsetted—replaced by an “always verify” approach for everything — users, endpoints, networks, servers and applications. Modern organizations have adopted a Zero Trust model to protect their SaaS, mobile and on-premises applications from cyberattacks. This approach eliminates trust in users who reside in a protected network. Instead, the identity of every user is always verified before access is granted to an application, regardless if the user originates within or outside of a network.

The right Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution can reap enormous benefits, such as risk reduction, cost savings and productivity gains. Researching and choosing the best solution requires careful consideration. This buyer's guide is designed to help you critically evaluate and choose the optimal IDaaS solution for your organization. It’s organized by the key capabilities you should consider when evaluating an IDaaS solution with important questions to ask your IT partner or vendor to determine if their offering will meet your needs. We’ve also added a time-saving chart to help you create a shortlist of suitable vendors. Finally, we have included an overview of additional resources to shed some more light on your selection process.
