What is Identity-as-a-Service?

The term Identity as-a-service (IDaaS) refers to cloud-based identity and access management solutions that help control user access to resources from a hosted environment. The key benefit of IDaaS is speed. When you can provide simpler, faster management tools for deploying IT resources to users, your business can adopt new technology more quickly.

Whether you are looking for a secure bridge to the cloud or a transformative makeover of your identity and access management (IAM) environment, IBM Cloud™-based offerings can deliver a business-friendly IAM.

How IBM’s fraud detection and cloud IAM uniquely converge

Beyond simple context, the hybrid multicloud landscape requires deep user, device, environment, activity and behavior understanding to continuously and intelligently inform dynamic access decisions. IBM Security was the only identity vendor to rank in the recent Forrester Wave for Risk-Based Authentication (RBA), primarily for its adaptive access capabilities and resulting protection of users, assets and data.
