According to Gartner security and risk management (SRM) leaders responsible for identity and access management (IAM) and fraud detection should "Target a SaaS or cloud-based deployment first, dropping back to on-premises only if there are specific needs that cannot be overcome or addressed."
Key Findings of the report:
- "The identity governance and administration (IGA) market has matured with increasingly little to differentiate full IGA suite vendors when considering common use cases presented by typical large organizations."
- "The shift to cloud-based IGA is accelerating, with many smaller organizations insisting on SaaS-only solutions. Gartner sees this direction moving into the larger organizations that are typically assessing the feasibility of IGA offerings based in the cloud or looking at cloud-first if possible."
