Join the Webinar and Get IAM Predictions for 2022

Increased remote working, a dramatically increased digital customer interaction landscape, the hyperconnected industry 4.0 enterprise, an increasingly complex multi-cloud multi-hybrid infrastructure - much of what we based our past strategic assumptions on has developed faster and with a different emphasis.


Time now to take a moment and discuss about how to re-align and assess current trends in Identity Proofing, Decentralized Identity and Access with your organization's business needs. We have put together a list of topics where we see that they have potential to play a pivotal role in your 2022 task list, as they are addressing key business challenges.

Prediction #1 - Passwordless Authentication: Killing the Undead will become Mainstream in 2022

The increased importance of a frictionless user experience as a digital business success factor on the one side, and a big wave of ransomware and similar attacks with user credentials as a main entry point are forcing us to rethink authentication and finally get rid of the password. Interview guests of this session will be KC Analyst Martin Kuppinger, Paul Fisher and Jochen Koehler from HYPR.

Prediction #2 - The Convergence of IAM and how to Manage Complexity in a Multi Cloud, Multi Hybrid, Multi Identity World

It is the same set of drivers – first and foremost remote workforce requirements and seamless customer interaction, that make our infrastructure and service even more complex as they used to be, with multiple public and private clouds, on-site IT, all of them with identity silos. In this session, KuppingeCole's Analyst Martin Kuppinger and Paul Fisher, will talk with André Priebe from iC Consult on how to leave silos behind and take advantage of global identity proofing networks, Decentralized (DID/SSI) or chain-agnostic (GAIN etc.) and how CIEM/DREAM can help reducing complexity.

Prediction #3 - Identity Proofing & Fraud Reduction Everywhere

The pandemic has dramatically accelerated the shift to online transactions in most industries, with the financial industry as an example for a heavily regulated sector being in the forefront of a movement to establish a global standard that leverages the assurance level of online identity vetting (the onboarding process of a digital identity) with traditional face-to-face methods. In this session, KuppingerCole's Analyst Martin Kuppinger and Paul Fisher will discuss with Eve Maler from ForgeRock about the relevance of identity proofing for your enterprise and why it will be one of the key topics 2022.

Prediction #4 - Identity & Access: The Big Efficiency Push

Workflows, integration, automation, low & no code – whatever reduces complexity and manual workload will be an even hotter topic in 2022. KuppingerCole's Analyst Martin Kuppinger and Paul Fisher will discuss with Clear Skye's Jackson Shaw on the new era of platform services and how they will help automating Identity & Access Management.

Prediction #5 - Zero Trust: The Next Level

Zero Trust will continue to play a crucial role in cybersecurity and identity management. In this session, KuppingerCole's Analyst Martin Kuppinger and Paul Fisher will discuss with Sergej Epp from Palo Alto Networks on how to apply Zero Trust thinking to converge IAM, UEM, MDM, XDR, SIEM, SOAR to a seamless and holistic cybersecurity infrastructure.
