Identropy Introduces "IDaaS For Dummies®" Book

IDaaS Pioneer Develops the Ultimate Reference Guide for Understanding Cloud-Based Identity Management

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - Identropy, a leading provider of Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solutions, today announced the publication of IDaaS For Dummies®.  Authored by Identropy Vice President of Marketing Ranjeet Vidwans and published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., IDaaS For Dummies is the first and most comprehensive guide to understanding Identity-as-a-Service -- what it is, how it works, and why it is such a transformative model for delivering Identity and Access Management (IAM).

"Many companies find identity management to be expensive, complex, time consuming, and frustrating -- and that's putting it mildly," said Ranjeet Vidwans, vice president of marketing, Identropy. "The rise of SaaS and Cloud computing created fertile ground for IAM innovation. The result is IDaaS -- IAM from the Cloud, for both Cloud and 'on premise' enterprise environments. IDaaS For Dummies is a useful reference guide for understanding and navigating the next generation of enterprise IAM, and provides all stakeholders -- from the CFO to the Security team -- with the facts they need to make smarter IAM decisions."

IDaaS For Dummies was designed to provide readers with an accessible and easy-to-read guide for overcoming the cost, complexity, and operational challenges that have been plaguing IAM since its inception. The book consists of seven chapters that provide readers with an overview of the IAM landscape and a blueprint for defining and executing an IDaaS strategy that can dramatically improve the performance of existing IAM systems. 

Key topics discussed in the book include:

  • The full scope of technologies and processes that comprise IAM
  • The business and technology drivers impacting IAM decision making
  • What IDaaS is, and how it is different than traditional IAM
  • The strategic benefits of IDaaS
  • How to define and present the business case for IDaaS -- in other words, IDaaS for CFOs
