It is about time that organizations started treating each identity as a perimeter. Fragmented identities controlled in decentralized IAM (Identity Access Management) settings increase the attack vector and reduce administrative efficiencies.
For today’s organizations, it has become imperative to break down barriers created by siloed IAM approach and move towards a converged identity approach that ensures a holistic IAM architecture with centralized policy enforcement and controls. In this whitepaper, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole Analysts AG, very succinctly explains how converged approaches that integrate several or all IAM capabilities can help in reducing complexity in implementing and operating IAM. The Analyst has also converged ARCON’s approach to Converged Identity.
