IDaaS stands for ‘Identity-as-a-Service’. It is an authentication infrastructure that is built, hosted and managed by a third-party provider. As such, it allows organisations to manage identities for consumers, employees and business customers in a flexible and efficient way, on a cloud platform that is maintained and kept up to standards by an expertised supplier.

IDaaS provides organisations with advanced IAM capabilities without having to deal with complex underlying infrastructure, policies and practices necessary to maintain high standards for compliance and security.
