The term ‘Cloud’ rattles the uncertainty bone to a maximum for plenty of the world’s population today. To add to agony, the moment the cloud is being discussed, there are a hundred different reasons behind what the cloud is, and why said cloud is beneficial. There is plenty of jargon related to cloud, and why you should go IaaS, SaaS, DaaS….. XaaS and now we want to talk to you about IDaaS.
We get to thinking about cloud as a UFO better known to the people from technical world. In layman’s language cloud is a ‘server on internet’. Through cloud computing, we can store our data on a remote server and process it through internet anywhere in the world as and when needed. It gives user a great relief and flexibility rather than being latched to a local server or personal desktops.
Identity is the gate pass required for someone to enter your IT system. To ensure that you have the right gatekeepers you may either host a facility on physical server through Identity Management or you may host it on cloud through a facility known as Identity as a Service (IDaaS).
While a physical server hosted in the premise of the organization, sound more secure, the myth to be debunked here is that the one on single tenant cloud is secure, value for money and provides operational efficiencies to organizations.
Why should an organization host Identity Management (IdM) on Cloud?
1. Gain access anywhere, everywhere: Keeping all the functions of an organization aloof is not feasible in a digitalized world. By hosting IdM on cloud, users can get assured access to their accounts from either work, home or on the road while travelling with email, storage, and private web-sites, document sharing, etc. on the cloud. Also IDaaS helps in directory management, provisioning etc. simplifying the user experience.
2. It is a value for money deal for those who want to go by pay per use model: The cost of setting up physical infrastructure is so high that many mid-sized and smaller organizations keep delaying implementation of an IdM infrastructure. It expensive, complex and requires an expertise that is where IDaaS come as a savior with its pay per use value for money model.
3. No pain of maintain servers, renewing licenses: IDaaS is Identity Management on cloud – where the task of administration in terms of creating credentials and assigning them to buckets of permission is hosted on cloud. There is no need of maintaining expensive and high on maintenance physical servers, making it an ideal option for small and mid-sized corporations.
With so much data on cloud comes a huge responsibility. Companies that are providing cloud computing like Amazon are working continuously against thefts and attack from hackers and have loaded layers of security and hired people to make cloud a safer place, which can’t be taken care of on our private computers. No system is fool-proof but the benefits of cloud over-shadow its risk. Hop on into the cloud world with Avancer, we will arm you with all necessary tool to make it a fool proof deal.
