Mobile Identity Software Overview
What is Mobile Identity Software?
Mobile identity software is, as its name suggests, a mobile-centric form of identity management proper, providing identity and access features for mobile platforms. The emergence of cloud and BYOD has brought a lot of confusion with large numbers of employees who wish to access web-based and mobile apps from Gmail to Workday on their mobile devices. Mobile identity software is designed to extend identity management to mobile apps that reside outside a company’s firewall. These products are often not designed to replace well-known directory protocols like LDAP and Active Directory, but rather take advantage of these existing identities and extend them to cloud and mobile apps.
