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.
With the Cambrian Explosion of Everything upon us, the number of devices, identities, assertions and connections is outstripping traditional technologies to manage SSO. The most used underlying protocol to manage SSO and Federated Naming has been the Security and Access Markup Language (SAML) protocol. The problem is, all of the management solutions built using SAML require SSO provisioning to be started, maintained and ended by a system administrator. SAML--in its current state--has no mechanism to allow for programmatic automation to be implemented. This leads to the question of whether SAML has already been relegated to a legacy that cannot be revived--or not. Join us for a discussion of the issues around this highly relevant and important topic.
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.
