Overview

Identity Access Manager is available in two deployment models:

On-premise

On-premise installations are those whose Identity Access Manager gateways are physically located at your organization or at a 3rd party hosting service (IaaS) other than Symantec.

Symantec Hosted

Symantec Hosted installations mean your Identity Access Manager gateway instance(s) are located at our secure network operations center, where we manage the single tenant infrastructure for you.  You only need to setup sufficient ID bridge(s) to your corporate user store (IdP), such as your active directory servers, to get started.

Which deployment model you and your executive leadership have elected, will determine which installation path you will need to follow.  Beyond that, all additional training will be common to the deployments models.  It is wise to remain cognizant of your deployment model in order to know who has physical access and who can manage what systems, so the fastest response times can be achieved, should you require technical support.

Installation (For On-premises Deployments)

* Step 6: Can be used for all deployments, as needed, to cross firewalls to IdPs. Can be skipped if you are using only the bulit-in, local user database, or your user store resides on the same network as your gateway.

Installation (For Symantec Hosted Service)

* Required for Hosted Service. It is necesary to connect to your corporate user store (IdP).  Can be used for all deployments, as needed, to cross firewalls to IdPs. Can be skipped if you are using only the bulit-in, local user database.
