IBM Security Verify Access Foundations (TW108G)

Overview

IBM Security Verify Access helps you simplify your users' access while more securely adopting web, mobile, IoT, and cloud technologies. It can be deployed on premises, in a virtual or hardware appliance, or containerized with Docker. Verify Access also directly connects with Verify SaaS for a modernized, hybrid IAM approach to enable your organization's migration to identity as a service (IDaaS) at a comfortable pace. Using the skills taught in this course, you learn how to run Verify Access via Docker, configure authentication and authorization mechanisms, implement policy access control, and set up reverse proxy junctions to process web requests. Hands-on exercises reinforce the skills learned.
