In cloud or hybrid environments, identity is the key security factor that needs to be protected and managed efficiently. At the same time, there is a need for centralized identity and access management that supports both digital workplace environments, such as Office 365, and all SaaS applications used in the enterprise. In addition, simple access to on-premise (legacy) applications should also be possible.
The focus is on a comprehensive zero-trust approach that is intended to protect the company as well as its employees and customers from cyber attacks.
The often-used analogy of a moat to protect company networks no longer applies. Because it must actually become more porous to work properly. Particularly flexible work and Cloud technologies require a new security approach.
