Identity security has become a top concern in our digitally connected world. The identity landscape is characterized by evolving challenges driven by technological advancements and cyber threat. 

IDaaS, or Identity-as-a-Service, is a modern identity management and authentication approach. It is a cloud-based service that centralises identity and access management processes. IDaaS providers offer a range of features to enhance security and simplify identity management.

Zero trust through IDaaS

In an era where traditional perimeter-based security is no longer sufficient, according to cloud security specialists Nexus, the Zero Trust security model has emerged as a paradigm shift. Zero Trust operates on the principle of "never trust, always verify," requiring continuous authentication and authorisation for every user and device, whether inside or outside the network.

IDaaS seamlessly integrates with the Zero Trust framework by providing the necessary tools for continuous verification, regardless of a user's location or access point. IDaaS, with its advanced authentication methods and assurance capabilities for trusted identities, becomes a cornerstone in building a secure digital ecosystem based on Zero Trust principles.
