As a small
business owner, I adore using the Cloud. I’m constantly searching for the
latest online widgets and SaaS apps that will help me manage and grow my
business.”SaaS” or Software as a Service includes
any application that is delivered as a service via a Web browser, from a public
or a private cloud.
about time you get introduced to CloudIdentity and Access Management (IAM)
or IDaaS(Identity as a Service) if you haven’t done so already. Cloud IAM
allows you to have a centralized structure to all Cloud/Web identities you and
your employees have. It’s a wonderful addition to your business that does more
than just sit around with a cute dashboard.
The day has come when hackers are

social media sites, and jump from updating your Facebook status, to tweeting a
flurry of Twitter insights, to joining countless circles on Google+, to sharing
the riveting stories being read on Goodreads, then signing in and out of all of
these places online can be taxing.
