Configuring Verify (Cloud Identity) and ADFS for zero-touch authentication in MaaS360

In this lab, you explore integrating IBM MaaS360, IBM security Verify (Cloud Identity), and Active Directory Federation Service (ADFS). In this scenario, Cloud Identity acts as an alternate IaaS (Identity as a Service) provider to ADFS so when ADFS detects a mobile device user, it redirects the authentication request to Cloud Identity. Cloud Identity works with MaaS360 to manage device compliance and enrollment requirements. This lab walks you through integrating all 3 tools in a cohesive, zero-touch, architecture that does not impact your business operations.
