Authorization without Policy Agent

So I received an email from a customer today - "Are there any where to provide authentication and authorization without having to install Policy Agent?".

There is now a trend to deploy applications on the cloud. In such deployment, customer does not want to install Policy Agent there. As such, the question was raised.

My response:

Without Policy Agent, if the applications are customizable, they can utilize the OpenAM REST APIs. This is quite common these days. I have another customer that has zero Policy Agent installed in their environment.
