With the growing deployments of mobile devices driven by the “bring your own device” trend and the increasing usage of multi-tenanted SaaS platforms, the end result is that more IT resources are not only physically moving outside the firewall but they are also outside the visibility, management and even ownership of the IT organization. Regardless of where the devices and applications reside, and who owns them, IT organizations still require controls over these resources that are accessing and/or storing corporate data consistent with security and compliance best practices.
One key aspect of these controls is that an IT organization must manage users’ digital identities and the corresponding roles and rights those identities have across mobile devices, servers and applications — that is, IT must still manage who can access what business systems, even though it no longer owns the endpoints or backend resources. Related to this is the increasing burden on end users to keep up with all the URLs and passwords they need to remember to do their jobs.
