The adoption and use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and other cloud computing services, from Platform-as-a-Service to Infrastructure-as-a-Service, continues to accelerate within organizations. Despite the inherent security risks, password-based authentication remains the most prevalent authentication method for users to authenticate to cloud computing services. As organizations increasingly adopt cloud services, intellectual property and sensitive information about customers, employees, and financial transactions become more accessible. There is a critical need for strong authentication that is designed to meet the needs of SaaS and Cloud computing customers.
In assessing strong authentication solutions for cloud computing services, an organization should consider the following:
- What type of users and devices will need access to the cloud-based service?
- How to cost-effectively implement strong authentication without adversely affecting user experience and tying up IT resources?
- What level of IT effort, total cost, and deployment scale is required?
