Cloudwork® Identity Access Manager

Cloudwork Today IT departments are moving away from traditional internal solutions to the cloud. But cloud access requires multiple credentials, which create management issues and ambiguous audit paths. Integrating identity credentials provides major benefits.

The Cloudwork Identity Manager provides a single indentity solution which integrates identity credentials for users, IT departments and schools, providing security, efficiency, auditable logging and lower costs.

What Does Cloudwork Identity Manager Provide?

Cloudwork IAM
Problem Solution
Single Sign-On
Users are frustrated by multiple usernames and passwords for cloud services, which impacts on efficiency and productivity. Single Sign-On gives users easy, straightforward access to the cloud, improving user experience and productivity.
Single Credential Control
Gartner estimates 20-30% of expensive help desk effort could be saved with easier, automated user credential management. Single Credential Control offers IT departments less costly systems by reducing complexity with automated credentials.
Single Identity Management
Schools have legal obligations to provide auditable logging in cases of misuse, which is difficult with multiple credentials. Single Identity Management helps schools meet legal obligations through automated auditable identity processes.
