Capgemini launches identity-as-a-service cybersecurity offering

Capgemini said it has launched a new identity as a service (Capgemini´s IDaaS) offering, part of its Cybersecurity Global Service Line.

The offering is a flexible and comprehensive set of solutions to help meet the digital identity challenges of today and tomorrow. It is designed to enable organizations to control how employees, partners and consumers access services and information.

Alongside the deep experience in cloud-based applications and cybersecurity from Capgemini and Sogeti, its local professional services subsidiary, the offering integrates commercial and open source components, including RSA® Via Lifecycle and Governance from RSA, the Security Division of EMC.

Cybercriminals targeting businesses and the exposure of millions of personal identities worldwide in recent years has made digital Identity, and its secure management, a significant area of concern for organizations around the world. Identity is increasingly becoming the critical point of control that organizations retain in the new digital environment. But Identity is now also rightly recognized as a business differentiator, allowing consumers and employees to securely and easily reach their data from any device via many different networks, applications, and multiple channels.

Capgemini´s new offering addresses these business and security demands by providing a highly scalable ´as a service´ solution that brings together the critical areas of Identity Governance, Identity Administration, risk-based Authentication and context-aware Authorization to provide a truly unified identity and access management (IAM) solution.
