As companies continue to increase their usage of cloud-based applications, and
as the extended workforce expands, the importance of controlling who has access
to what systems and how access is granted is imperative.
It has become increasingly more important to have one single source of security
for all information, applications and systems required by the organizationís
extended workforce and supply chain.
One source of security helps each organization in its effort to provision and
de-provision users from various internal and external applications in an
expedient manner to minimize risk.
Companies in various industries have said that this is particularly beneficial
for their high investment joint ventures.
At the same time, organizations need to consider internal policies and external
government or regulatory compliance issues and how they impact access to
information and systems.
