Enterprises should build on emerging security standards for protecting their employees’ identities in order to become Identity Providers (IdP). By becoming an IdP, companies can better control, enforce and extend security standards to all on-premise and cloud-based applications in their organizations, as well as to mobile devices. This white paper from SecureAuth will discuss the reasons enterprises should become IdPs, what becoming an IdP involves, and why you should automate as much of this process as possible.
