Identity management in the era of cloud and mobility
Sponsored by SearchWindowsServer.com
Managing identity and access in the cloud represents a difficult challenge for IT administrators. Proper identity management contributes to a secure IT operation and is an element for a number of compliance regulations. For those and other reasons, an organization’s ability to control who accesses particular areas of an IT environment is important. Many IT organizations, however, aren’t succeeding; one Gartner report suggests almost half of businesses take the wrong approach to identity management. The cloud and the prevalence of mobile devices only adds layers of complexity to the problem. This handbook looks at tools and best practices that can help ensure an organization is properly handling identity management in the cloud. It will include discussion of tools and methods to manage authentication, how to work with cloud providers, and how Active Directory can and cannot help.
