- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, March 31, 2011 TIME: 15:00 CET, 9am EST
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.
PSD2 and the Open Banking Standard are regulatory mandates being applied to the banking industry by the European Banking Authority (EBA) and Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) across Europe and in the UK respectively. The regulations require that banks operating across the region expose open APIs to allow other banks and third parties to access the data they hold on customers, when the customer has given their explicit consent. Designed to improve choice for customers, create more competition and stimulate innovation in the finance sector, the introduction of 'open banking' in the UK and across the EU will transform banking as we know it.
European Identity & Cloud Conference 2017 is the place where identity management, cloud, and information security thought leaders and experts get together to discuss and shape the future of secure, privacy-aware agile, business- and innovation-driven IT.
