The Importance of Identity
in a Hybrid IT World
If your organization is like many, you’re
moving more and more applications
to the cloud or introducing numerous
APIs into your environment as a part
your digital transformation. Wherever
you are in the various stages of your
cloud journey, even if you have a
cloud-first mandate, you will find
yourself experiencing both the
benefits and challenges of a hybrid IT
Along the way, existing infrastructure, whether it is
software or hardware, has been spread throughout
your IT environment, resulting in a hybrid and
complex infrastructure to manage. Additionally,
many existing, perhaps legacy or homegrown,
applications that are critical to business success
and day-to-day operations lack SaaS equivalents.
On top of this, the rising number of security,
compliance, and regulation requirements are
necessitating the need to maintain critical
applications on-premises or in-country, which is
making identity security equally as important as
data security.
To ease your digital transformation and meet
security requirements, identity is now the critical
component. As organizations like yours migrate
data and applications to the cloud, you should
keep identity at the forefront and look for solutions
that answer three key questions:
1. Are you who you say you are?
2. Are you doing what you’re supposed to be
3. Do you have access to what you are
supposed to?
In order to answer these questions, identity
solutions are needed to help customers streamline
their identity security in this new hybrid IT norm.
Customers are demanding (and deserving of)
solutions that enable access to applications and
APIs in the public cloud, private cloud and/or onpremises. They need secure solutions that assure
the correct users are getting the right access to
the applications and data they require. Fortunately,
leaders in the identity space recognize these
requirements and are working together on openstandards built solutions that provide a flexible,
secure and scalable identity ecosystem. With
customization, configuration, and out-of-thebox integration capabilities, identity and access
management leaders are simplifying customers’
management and deployment of new applications
and APIs within their existing infrastructures. All
these capabilities enable organizations to easily
balance control and security of their hybrid
To close, leading identity solutions exist to help
customers fortify their security posture without
costly and time-sensitive integrations. The result
is increased visibility, greater governance and
control, and seamless and secure access for all
