IBM Identity Solution Review - Identity Review | Global Tech Think Tank - Identity Review | Global Tech Think Tank

IBM is a recognized cybersecurity solution provider and corporation. Well-known for its security analytics, the tech giant entered the IDaaS market in 2014 with the purchase of Lighthouse Security Group. IBM has since established itself in the market with its Cloud Identity Service offering, a rebranding of Lighthouse’s IDaaS product.

IBM Cloud Identity helps organizations optimize their IAM solutions for the cloud without sacrificing previous on-premises investments. It incorporates context and intelligence into decisions about who should have access to what, empowering organizations to give the right people the right access at the right time. Balancing between security and user experience, IBM infuses AI and risk analytics throughout the platform, providing smart identity for a hybrid multi-cloud world. This includes capabilities such as:

  • Single Sign-On (SSO) from any device, providing a unified application launchpad and SSO from any device to any application.
  • 2FA to any target system, helping to protect web, cloud, mobile, VPNs and operation systems with flexible MFA.
  • User lifecycle management and compliance to request, approve, provision and recertify user access to applications.
  • Adaptive access to assess the full context of a user’s attributes and enforce MFA when risk is high.
  • Identity analytics to provide a 360-degree view of access risks and the ability to act based on those risk insights.
