CSC introduces new cloud-based IAM offering ‘CloudIAM’

Addresses the security and technical challenges faced by enterprises who are transitioning applications to the cloud

By CBR Staff Writer

CSC, a provider of technology-enabled offerings and services, has introduced CloudIAM, a comprehensive cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) offering.

The new offering is built with cloud security company, Symplified, which addresses the security and technical challenges faced by government and commercial enterprises who are transitioning applications to the cloud.

The offering leverages clients’ existing credential stores and extends to them IAM features such as Single Sign-On (SSO), Role-Based Access (RBAC) and centralised audit logging for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.

The CloudIAM helps to overcome a primary inhibitor to cloud adoption- the management of access and control, when cloud-based SaaS applications are delivered by different service providers.

CSC said that the operational advantages of CloudIAM include: providing an SSO experience to employees that maintains control over user credentials; controlling access to applications based on individual employee functions; and providing automated on-boarding and off-boarding to improve efficiency and eliminate security holes when employees are hired and depart the company.

CSC cloud computing and software services vice-president Siki Giunta said CloudIAM is suited for companies that have a mixture of in-house and SaaS applications, and are experiencing difficulties managing identity and access.
