A new ordering option for Cloud Identity Connect now includes Eligible Participant that provides businesses a Cloud Service application with a single sign-on (SSO) for users who are not employed by the business. This can help businesses and their users to move more quickly to the cloud, regardless of their employment affiliation with the business.

Cloud Identity Connect delivers capabilities for multiple client scenarios:

  • Existing IBM® Security Access Management (ISAM) clients

    Cloud Identity Connect is tightly integrated within ISAM to provide an easy solution for existing ISAM clients to support their line-of-business demands for access management to cloud applications. In addition, with this new bundled offering, Cloud Identity Connect provides access management capabilities that are coupled as a complete solution. It includes both ISAM and Cloud Identity Connect.

  • Existing or new IBM Cloud and mobility clients

    Clients who use one of the many IBM Cloud solutions, such as IBM MaaS360®, IBM Box, IBM Watson® Workspace, or IBM Connections™ Cloud, already made the decision to move to the cloud. Cloud Identity Connect extends those cloud investments by providing clients SSO to the other public cloud applications they currently use. Coupled with MaaS360, additional levels of security controls, such as conditional access, are also delivered.

For more information on the previously announced capabilities and ordering options for Cloud Identity Connect, see Software Announcement JP17-0159, dated June 13, 2017.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
