Using CIAM to Disrupt the Economics of Attackers
Deception for crime or warfare is an established tactic used by attackers, probably as old as humanity. Even in today’s online world, fake and stolen identity are primary routes for attackers to gain unauthorized access to an organization's digital assets, networks, or systems.

Reliably establishing and authenticating the identities of those we choose to trust online enables us to keep attackers out, or minimize their access and impact if they are already in the network.
