Is SAML a dead protocol or just a walking Zombie ready to consume all enterprise brains? Or is it yet alive and well both in legacy and the future? Attend this webinar to join the discussion KuppingerCole´s Distinguished Analyst Craig Burton about health and well being of the Federated sign-on protocol of choice -- SAML.
