Identity Defined Security: More Productivity and Better Security
Traditional packaged software applications are becoming a thing of the past, and it's not hard to understand why. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications that live in the cloud let you avoid the purchase of hardware and greatly reduce the cost of software licenses and maintenance. Businesses of all sizes are migrating to cloud-based office productivity suites from Google and Microsoft, among other applications, including Salesforce.

No one wants to login multiple times.

Traditional perimeter-based firewall security falls apart in the face of the cloud and mobility. A new paradigm called Identity Defined Security is the pathway to protecting your corporate assets while not impacting employee productivity.
Identity Defined Security puts identity at the center of your security architecture enabling more dynamic access control through three core capabilities that work together:
When you put authentication, SSO, and access controls together, that is federated access management.
