Our partner Omada, a market-leading provider of solutions for advanced identity management and access governance, has today announced an exciting new strategic alliance with Microsoft.
Here are few words of introduction from our CTO, Tomasz Onyszko:
One of the biggest fears when it comes to cloud deployments, but also for on-premises applications, is security.
Fear comes from the unknown. And with fear comes uncertainty.
There is only one thing that can fight fear and uncertainty. Get to know it and manage it – how it translates to IT systems and cloud computing.
A growing number of applications and systems in a cloud raises concerns and fear related to application security and information leakage. Permissions once granted to Azure resources might not be revoked. Roles assigned will stay forever. Bring guest accounts into the mix and – you get the picture.
It gets really difficult.
How to manage it?
With proper process for identity and access governance you can capture state of permissions, put them into attestation process and bring into a managed state.
You are thus entering the Compliant Cloud realm. There, you need to manage the fear about security through processes and tools.
With that we are glad to see Microsoft and Omada joining forces together to bring tools for Compliant Cloud to Azure AD and Azure platform.
Using Omada tools you can get into control of your application access and Azure resources permissions.
How do we know it? Because we are working as partner with Microsoft and Omada. And there is one thing you should know about Predica. If we do something, we first use it ourselves.
If you want to bring identity and access governance process to your organization and bring your cloud to the compliant state, then Azure and Omada is the perfect match!
