Identity Fabric: A Modern Architecture Built Around Capabilities

An Identity Fabric architecture enables an organization to manage identity-related tasks like authentication, access control, and integration, through no-code workflows that ingest information from all platforms, process it, and route it to the services and apps necessary to fulfill the user’s request.

Its power is in its flexibility. An Identity Fabric based system can handle requests from any source, including external identities, federated identities, APIs, directory services, databases, etc., and route them to an equally diverse array of identity consumers. An identity only has to be authenticated once and from there can be used without any limits other than those imposed by identity policies.

The work of managing identities across silos is abstracted away from platform or vendor-specific solutions. Businesses don’t have to re-tool their existing infrastructure and tech stacks, and they don’t have to rewrite their apps or undergo painful migrations.

Since there is no need to rewrite apps or move platforms, the costs of identity-related projects is greatly reduced, as is time-to-market. Once in place, APIs do the heavy lifting, so admins are free to focus on their core jobs and the business has more resources available to devote to growth.

An Identity Fabric architecture provides visibility into the identity system and provides authentication regardless of the infrastructures involved – on-premise, private clouds, public clouds, and multi-clouds are all accommodated, and identity information is continually updated and always consistent.

An Identity Fabric solution supports stronger cybersecurity by enabling the consistent enforcement of policies across infrastructures, and across distributed apps as well, while also making advanced identity controls such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and passwordless authentication easier to implement.
