Cloud computing will widen to make resources, applications, and data available at any time and anywhere.

FREMONT, CA: Cloud computing has become popular since the concept was introduced. As applications move to the cloud from conventional systems, it becomes paramount for enterprises and their management to secure their data from threats and attacks as they store and access data in the cloud. Cloud security and access management concepts cover a set of technologies, rules, and regulations that collectively help enterprises protect their data and customers’ private data.

Cloud computing has several advantages that serve enterprises and their users. It allows the set up of a virtual office that enables flexible connections to the businesses anytime and anywhere. Some of the advantages of cloud computing include flexibility of work activities, security, availability, and easy maintenance. Cloud computing systems are upgraded frequently, and this makes it compatible with the latest technology. The servers are also managed easily, and the probability of disruption is reduced. Enterprises are also placed at an advantage over competitors because they get updates on information and applications quickly. Users can easily access stored data using an internet-connected device like phones, tablets, laptops, or workstations, thus boosting productivity.

Cloud computing has attained popularity because firms need a massive amount of data storage space. Small and large enterprises can also benefit from advanced security and access management that cloud platform providers provide. A cloud environment may provide Private, Federated or Hybrid, and Public options. Cloud computing is divided into three cloud service models, which are a software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Cloud computing is a combination of many computing resources like servers, storage, applications, and services that provide on-demand access to cloud users and customers.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a method of building security and authentication gates into distributed resources. The wide distribution of resources cannot be avoided, and there is no single software to usually secure all the systems. Identity and Cloud Access Management SaaS is widening every day as firms are migrating to cloud applications.
