When you expose your services or data to the outside world, you open yourself up to a lot of security and systems challenges. Users logging in at your existing user store, or from external sources like Facebook, Twitter or Google need to be securely identified and connected to your services or data. But what about APIs? They also need to be authorized. That’s why any good IAM solution will act like an identity federation hub. This means not just a secure solution, but one that can handle all these accesses flexibly, and out of the box natively. Learn about what an identity hub solution can do below.
Keeps your business lean and streamlined, and users free of identity fatigue. There’s no need to invent or administer a new identity when every user you serve already has a whole host through other providers like Google, Facebook or LinkedIn. With an Identity Access Management solution, you can choose which existing third-party identity stores you trust. That keeps your system safe, flexible and user-friendly.
