- 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.
A key challenge in every organization is making sure that the right tools are available, in the right place, at the right time, for the right people. The continual on and off boarding of large groups of employees, external workforces or partners creates increased pressure on administrative teams within an organization. An overall change towards diverse end-user devices, both corporate and privately owned, adds a new dimension of complexity, while compliance and security requirements challenge IT, CISOs and executive management.
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. The EIC has become a kind of family gathering, the place where the global identity and cloud community meets every year. So take the opportunity to meet IT professionals and colleagues who are involved in this community, get advice from people who are fervent about IAM and Cloud Security.
