Cloud Computing platform should not only give facility and manageability of identities but also the security of different systems and Cloud Computing based applications. Identity and access management consists of several components.
The pillars of this system is the authentication system within the Cloud. The visibility, scalability and manageability, data and permissions in such an Cloud Computing environment requires a comprehensive, flexible and secure Identity and Access Management System.
Due to different existing technologies and methods within the Cloud Computing platform a new scope has been grown as well.
Cloud Computing and IDA system
An efficient cloud requires an IDA system. An IDA-system in Cloud must have complete control over each and every identifiable system. This includes the administration of identities of individuals, service accounts, physical or virtual machine and are servers and service.
A conventional IDA system can often fulfill the requirements only partially. This is why service level agreements (SLA) is conceptualized.
This IDA System offers a cohesive solution for the manageability of the entire lifecycle of an identity and related information, requirements and privileges in the Cloud Computing platform.
Keypoints of Cloud Computing Identity and Access Management
- Deletions of identities within the Cloud should be done immediately and directly as any delay may involve a security risk.
- The possibility that an individual may possess multiple identities within the Cloud Computing demands the need of a better allocation of these identities.
Safety in Cloud Computing
Safety fundamentally differs in cloud computing when compared to traditional system. The Requirements, guidelines, compliance and governance however are same in Cloud Computing and non Cloud Computing area.
Understanding the benefits of Cloud Computing
It is important to calculate the cost and ROI for deploying Cloud Computing in any enterprise. It is easy to integrate Cloud Computing but difficult to return back to traditional platform which was the base before. This is why, many enterprises today looking towards Hybrid Cloud Computing model.
