Web Access Management has fundamentally changed during the last years. Today it is about a consistent approach for protecting access and building a central layer of protection for many different services. Martin Kuppinger will talk about the potential of Web Access Management solutions to become such a layer and address different topics: Enabling federations, allowing versatility for users, opening up internal applications to external users in a controlled way, enabling centralized access policies and logging, and more.
Followed by Martin, Lee Howarth from Novell will illustrate how using a web access management solution can simplify user access while maintaining security. Citing best practices based on actual deployments, the presenter will illustrate not only how to deliver web single sign-on for internally hosted applications, but also how to expand this use case to include partner- and cloud-based applications.
