By 2023, 40 percent of identity and access management application convergence will be powered mainly by MSSPs concentrating on providing best-of-breed applications through an automated approach, transferring power from product vendors to service partners.

FREMONT, CA: The old security paradigm 'inside means trusted' and 'outside means untrusted' has been broken for a long time. All computing properties and tools are outside the enterprise, as are most identities. By 2025, cybersecurity mesh can support more than half of all IAM demands, making for a more explicit, mobile, and streamlined adaptive access management platform. The cybersecurity mesh model offers a more streamlined, adaptive, modular, and secure approach to digital asset access control than conventional security perimeter controls.

Security and risk management executives are witnessing widespread fragmentation of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions for various reasons, most notably due to the accelerated push towards customer-facing connections on digital platforms and the unexpected and rapid proliferation of remote staff due to the pandemic. The following two strategic planning assumptions concentrate on emerging developments in access management, decentralized identity, IAM professional services, and identity proofing.

Delivery of IAM Services Will Rise via Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs)

Organizations lack the trained expertise and capabilities to prepare, improve, develop and execute robust IAM solutions. As a result, specialist service providers are hired to provide the required assistance, particularly when several roles need to be handled simultaneously. Organizations will increasingly focus on MSSP companies for counsel, feedback, and integration suggestions. By 2023, 40 percent of IAM application convergence will be powered mainly by MSSPs concentrating on providing best-of-breed applications through an automated approach, transferring power from product vendors to service partners.

The Emergence of a Global, Portable, Decentralized Identity Standard

Centralized methods to handling identity data—common in today's market—are failing to offer benefits in three main areas: privacy, confidentiality, and pseudonymity. A transparent solution uses blockchain technologies to maintain anonymity, allowing individuals to verify requests for information by supplying the requester with just the absolute minimum amount of information needed. By 2024, a genuinely global, portable, decentralized identification norm will appear on the market to solve cases of business, personal, social and societal, and identity-invisible use.
