Define how the Identity & Access Management (IAM) components and services are distributed, managed, and accessed to provide secure identity management and access control. Evaluate the pros and cons of each model and align the chosen approach with the organization’s overall IT strategy and business goals.
Key Deployment Options
On-premise deployment involves setting up and managing the necessary infrastructure and tools to control user identities, permissions, and access to various resources within your organization’s own data center or private network.
Cloud Identity & Access Management (IAM) deployment involves setting up and managing access controls, authentication, and authorization for cloud-based resources and services. This deployment model is typically used when an organization adopts cloud computing platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or other cloud providers.
A Software-as-a-Services (SaaS) Identity & Access Management (IAM) solution is a cloud-based service that provides organizations with the tools and capabilities to manage user identities, access controls, and security policies for their applications and resources. Rather than setting up and maintaining an on-premises IAM infrastructure, organizations can leverage a SaaS IAM solution to offload the management and complexity to a third-party provider.
