Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the userís identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software.

Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps.
Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-
