Why Read This Report

We're moving fast into a world of loosely coupled, cloud-based data centers. Cloud infrastructure models complicate the identity and access management (IAM) landscape — and represent significant challenges for the enterprise. Single sign-on (SSO) is valuable for solving key IAM problems in achieving a cloud-ready Zero Trust posture, but many firms still find that SSO imposes too much cost and complexity. In response, models that focus integration efforts on a central identity hub or broker are gaining new currency. Read this report to learn the pros and cons of common identity federation patterns and the scenarios where identity brokers are emerging as an optimal choice.
