The topic of Identity & Access Management is becoming increasingly important. While companies are increasingly using cloud services that are directly accessible from the Internet, web applications and APIs are used to forward and execute more and more queries from the Internet directly to the databases in the company’s back end. The perimeter of a company is thereby softened and conventional zone concepts are bypassed. As a result, the company’s internal resources become vulnerable.
To ensure security nevertheless, strong Identity & Access Management and new approaches like Zero Trust are central.
