Network controls can't scale with cloud and mobile, so CISOs are using IAM as the new lever for security control around corporate access. As the collective strain of BYOD and ad-hoc, cloud-delivered IT dissolves the last vestiges the network-based zone defense mentality in infosec, CIOs and CISOs are still on the hunt for a new security lever.

And so security leaders are turning to identity and access management (IAM) to define a new perimeter around corporate access.
