The Atlassian Guide to Cloud Identity and Access Governance

The Atlassian Guide to Cloud Identity and Access Governance

Understand and implement a centralized cloud IAM solution

Executive Summary

Unlike times past when on-premises software was behind a firewall and organizations worked in just a handful of centrally managed applications, today individual teams now adopt cloud tools that solve for specific business problems. Often, they’re integrating multiple applications via APIs, and spreading valuable—and sometimes sensitive—data across multiple software vendors.

This brings about the biggest challenge of modern IT: Keeping your company data secure across a growing number of applications and endpoints.

Moving your organization’s sensitive assets to the cloud requires different—and greater—control over which employees can access those cloud apps and services. This aspect of IT governance—cloud identity and access management (IAM)—is the key to overcoming the biggest challenge in digital transformation.
