Putting the “Service” in “Identity as a Service”

You wouldn't think a simple word like “service” could have people scratching their heads. And yet there's one use in particular that seems to be creating some confusion: it's the meaning of “service” in the term “Identity as a Service” (IDaaS).

In this blog, Simeio Vice President of Product Management Abhimanyu Yadav explores the various meanings of “service” that are being used across the full spectrum of IDaaS providers. Some providers host Identity and Access Management services, but require that you operate and manage them. Others call themselves IDaaS providers, but offer only a limited set of capabilities.

Abhi then explains what sets Simeio apart as the leading provider of Managed Identity Services – the only true full-service provider – offering the industry's most complete set of security and identity capabilities as a managed service. He concludes by offering seven key questions to ask any IDaaS provider you may be considering to better understand what “service” means to them.

To help combat these threats, Rob describes four additional layers of protection that you should add.
