"Multi-cloud NaaS providers can improve the security of their multi-cloud solutions by incorporating IAM and multi-cloud security management offerings into their platforms."


Organisations that operate in multi-cloud environments can struggle to configure consistent security policies, maintain visibility across platforms and automate identity and access management (IAM) processes. Multi-cloud network-as-a-service (NaaS) providers have the opportunity to address these challenges by offering IAM solutions and using decentralised identity models to help enterprises to achieve zero-trust security, comply with data privacy/sovereignty regulations and support Web 3.0 use cases.
