Oracle Identity and Cloud Service

October 22, 2020

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. 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 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
