The role of web access management has changed and nowadays serves as a central layer of protection for many different services, enabling federations and allowing versatility for users. Join us in this webinar to learn, how to transform your traditional web access management into such a central multi-purpose layer.
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.
As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
