"Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a complex challenge faced by organizations world-wide," writes Eric Z. Maass. "The introduction of cloud applications threatens to further exasperate the matter. IAM solutions have recently emerged that use the public cloud to achieve deep cost reductions without diluting performance. This session will discuss the fundamentals of Identity and Access Management in your on-premise and cloud-based hybrid application ecosystem."
Eric will be presenting a session entitled "Identity and Access Management: Abandoning the Burden by Embracing the Cloud" at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York on Monday, April 19 at 5:30pm.
"Discussing the core challenges that face every organization, such as SSO, Access Controls, Identity Provisioning, and Federation, we’ll take a deeper look into the components of a comprehensive IAM system," he writes. "Specifically addressing the extension of IAM to the Cloud and identity integration with SaaS partners, this session will share critical information required to achieve powerful ROI while avoiding pitfalls and hype that may compromise your organization’s security."
