The shift to SaaS and other cloud solutions has made Identity & Access Management more important (IAM). User identification is one of the only defences against illegal access to important company data, after all. The identity fabric of IAM is comprised of the tools used to define it. Identity pressure from threat actors can be resisted by stronger fabrics. These demands, nevertheless, are only becoming stronger. Many IAM tools are being pushed to their breaking point by decentralised IT, emerging threats, and zero-trust tools. Instead than only using isolated IAM technologies, IAM is now working as a flexible, linked identity fabric. IAM is being forced by the requirements of the current IT operating environment to enable decentralised IT environments while yet giving its customers centralised administration and governance.
