Authentication as a Service (AaaS)
The following is the intro to our newest eBook on Authentication as a Service (AaaS):
"SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, CaaS…Powered by advancements in cloud technology, the “X as a Service” model has become equally popular among vendors looking for new sources of recurring revenue and businesses attracted by the convenience of services they don’t have to host at their own locations.
Here’s another acronym: AaaS. It stands for authentication as a service. By that, we mean delivering authentication services like two-factor authentication, single sign-on and password management remotely from the cloud. Authentication as a service allows businesses to track their password usage, enforce strict password requirements, and provide their employees with an efficient and secure way to login to their many applications and web services. Because AuthAnvil is accessed as a cloud application, businesses are not hit with the upfront cost of setting up a server and software onsite. They also don’t have to deal with the continual hassle of maintaining it.
This guide is for managed services IT providers (MSPs) that use or are considering using the AuthAnvil password management system. It explains why and how to use AuthAnvil’s multi-tenancy capabilities to not only manage your business’s own passwords, but to provide similar services to your IT clients—all without installing separate instances of AuthAnvil or setting up additional servers."
