The cloud is here to stay, and Microsoft SharePoint users are finally making the move. Since 2013, the number of SharePoint users with intentions of moving their SharePoint sites to the cloud has doubled, according to a 2015 AIIM survey.1 Many users are making the change to reduce IT costs, improve access for external partners and increase mobility.
Casey, IT manager at a mid-size healthcare organization, is one of those users planning to move his organization to a cloud-based SharePoint infrastructure. But because Casey works in healthcare, he’s especially concerned about the security of the cloud. And he’s not alone with that concern — AIIM reports that 62 percent of SharePoint users cite security as their biggest concern when considering a cloud or hybrid solution for SharePoint.
More specifically, many SharePoint users are concerned about the following three areas of security in the cloud:
• Identity and access
• Data protection and privacy
• Compliance and governance
Identity and access management governance helps determine who has authorized access to what resources, for what purpose and for how long. IAM governance from IBM provides value beyond risk control, with accountability and transparency for user entitlements throughout the user lifecycle.
IBM Cloud Identity Service is helping businesses simplify Identity and Access Management (IAM) through a cloud-delivered service (IDaaS). IBM Cloud Identity Service combines the full spectrum of IAM, including federation, web access management, and identity governance with the speed, agility, and lower cost of the cloud. This video demonstrates how to rapidly integrate SaaS and other third-party applications using the "Quick Connect" feature within the IBM Cloud Identity Service and securely connect people and applications to the cloud.
IT professionals and executives who use identity management and access governance systems typically have different objectives and technology backgrounds. Converging the systems makes sense, but it must be robust to meet IT’s demands and simple for non-IT professionals to manage.
