Conducting an Orchestra – The New Role of IAM
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, March 22, 2012 TIME: 16:00 CET, 8:00am PT, 11:00pm ET
With the loss of control over many resources through current trends like BYOD (bring your own devices) and usage of cloud services, enterprise IT is going through a radical change. In this webinar, you will learn about the new role of Identity & Access Management as an information security cornerstone.
The enterprise IT is in transformation. The use of social media and own devices (BOYD – bring your own device) in enterprises show that there is no longer a clear separation between privately used IT and enterprise IT. On the other hand the sharp contours of the enterprise IT are increasingly blurred by the use of cloud services and outsourcing of business processes.
These trends need to be addressed. Enterprises are no longer in direct control of all resources and service providers. They have to stipulate service quality and security through contracts, KPIs and SLAs. In this scenario IAM is a cornerstone for securing business critical information, privacy and compliance in business and administration processes in a multitude of diverse applications and service providers.
As an IAM vendor, system integrator, outsourcer and service provider Atos is active in all in these areas. Atos supports enterprises and organizations in their transformation process and provides tailored IAM solutions – on-premise, as managed service or from the cloud.
In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will talk about the new challenges enterprises are faced with and discuss strategic options. He will reflect the changing situation and address the requirements for this area. In doing so, he aligns this situation in the context of the KuppingerCole IT Model and shows, which prominent role IAM plays for the IT of the future.
Following Martin, Ralf Knöringer and Rudolf Wildgruber from Atos IT Solutions will discuss practically, how enterprises ensure to keep the governance over their identities in the transformation process and present the elements and service options of a future-proof IAM solution.

First of January 2015, Atos started the service line “Big Data & Cyber Security”. The combination of the Atos DirX and the Evidian IAM portfolio strengthens the strategic product choices Atos offers in terms of cyber security.
Cloud computing and mobile workforces have resulted in an expanding attack surface and a complex web of identify information. This means that traditional perimeter-based security models are no longer effective. A Zero Trust model of strict access control for every user and device enables businesses to be connected and secure, but an effective identity-focused approach is essential.
