Idaas Buyers' Guide

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. “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 Security 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.
