The pandemic has triggered a wave of identity and access management (IAM) challenges as businesses internally restructure, onboard specialized skillsets or face financial pressures to make redundancies. What questions do you need to ask to ensure security and privacy remain part of the IAM lifecycle? Learn how Cloud specialists can help you answer this.

Industries experiencing huge demand have an incentive to expedite onboarding processes for new joiners, while others are doing the same for specialist skillsets they desperately need.

Globally, customers have realized that identity and access management has become the new perimeter security to ensure consistent security across their on-premise, hybrid cloud, and public cloud deployments of database, applications, and other workloads. Similar to their workloads, customers expect to deploy and manage their Identity and access platform solutions anywhere. The scale and types (e.g. IOT and Bots) of our digital economy are increasing the entities accessing enterprise resources, which is driving the need for identity solutions where identity life cycle and governance work together with intelligent access management to provide comprehensive security. Oracle’s Identity suite can address nearly any deployment use case. How to leverage?

Oracle Identity and Cloud Service (IDCS)

IDCS refer to Oracle Identity Cloud Service and it’s considered as Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution, Oracle Identity Cloud Service provides identity management, single-sign-on (SSO) and identity governance for applications on-premise, in the cloud and mobile applications. Any user can access the application at anytime, anywhere on a device in a secure manner. Oracle IDCS integrates directly with existing directories and identity management system, making it easier for users to access applications. Providing a platform that is robust and secure, allows users to access, develop and deploy their applications.

Oracle Identity and Access Management (IAM) can be grouped by function:

  1. Identity Management
  2. Access Management
  3. Directory Services

Oracle IAM solutions secure access to enterprise applications for both cloud and on-premises deployments

Organizations can enable a Zero Trust strategy and establish user identity as a new security perimeter.

Why IT Convergence

While Oracle has taken utmost care to ensure security is built in the OCI environment, still the security on cloud is a shared responsibility with customers and here is where an expert plays a critical role. Analysis 3 of the eBook shares Gartner’s views on How to leverage certified Oracle Partners for cloud success

It is important to understand that moving traditional on-premises Oracle environments (ERP, HCM, PPM, etc.) to a public cloud does not eliminate the need for monitoring, security, operating system, database, application, infrastructure and management. The complexity of Cloud, Oracle workloads, and more specifically the contracting, architectural design, and implementation of these workloads, requires expertise that most companies may not have internally. All layers on top of the virtualization layer — the operating system, the database, the middleware and the application — will still require management.
