Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX company, has launched an identity and access management as a service (IAMaaS) offering, enabling partners to offer a managed service to their customers without having to invest up-front or waiting until they have developed their own capabilities.
The Tech Data IAMaaS service offering is designed to be easy to sell, deploy and manage. Making use of Active Directory and Azure Active Directory as its foundation, it provides a set of practice frameworks and technologies for the establishment of secure access and to ensure privileged access and administrator activities are always secure, audited, and fully under control.
Alison Nixon, Director, Security, Advanced Solutions, UK and Ireland, Tech Data said, “identity and access management is right on the front line of enterprise digital defences and should be a critical element of every organisation’s security posture. But many customers don’t have a policy or a solution in place – and many partners do not have the in-house skills and capabilities to manage IAM for their customers and deliver the right outcomes. Our service breaks that impasse, providing our partners with a managed IAM service that they and their customers can trust.”
IAMaaS is the latest addition to Tech Data’s RECON Security Suite services portfolio. This comprises managed and subscription-based services that partners can offer to their customers, with all aspects of technical delivery and ongoing support provided by Tech Data’s security practice. All the RECON Security Suite services have been developed around the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework. As well as identity and access management, services available include security consulting, SOCaaS, and backup and recovery.
