According to The Economist, “Data is the most valuable resource, leaving behind the oil”. The motivation for most of the data-breach incidents can be well understood by this fact. While many factors are responsible for data breach incidents, lack of efficient identity management solutions, have proved to be one of the foremost causes of data-breach incidents. According to Verizon’s report, 58% of the total data breach in health-care is due to insider threats. Looking at these scenarios, it’s time to rethink your Identity Management techniques to prevent data-breach incidents.
Taking into account, large workforce and huge customer base, SSO (Single sign-on) and MFA solutions alone are not sufficient for large enterprises. Large enterprises are under continuous threat of data-breaches. Having said this, they require security solutions and some of the most complex IAM solutions that can continuously monitor and detect suspicious activity and provide a necessary alert to staff and can even block those accounts.

On-prem solutions increase the overhead of maintenance on IT departments but give more flexibility to managers and admins. However, cloud-based solutions are more reliable and resilient compared to on-prem ones. Any organization, planning to implement IAM solutions for the first time, must go with some of the best cloud-based IAM solutions.
