Integrating and maintaining each cloud application individually within the enterprise IAM solution is no real alternative. Obviously, building a pure Cloud IAM besides the existing on-site IAM is also not the most elegant way to solve the challenge. The target should be to use an approach that seamlessly connects the enterprise IAM solution with a multitude of cloud services in a standardized, centralized way.
Atos, the cloud service provider and vendor of the DirX IAM product suite, is launching a cloud service offering an identity federation hub that seamlessly connects enterprise identity management services through a single and reliable channel with services in public, hybrid and private clouds. This allows enterprises to extend identity management, access governance and SSO to services in the cloud in a cost-effective and efficient way.
In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will talk about architectural approaches for extending IAM to the Cloud. He will show variants for hybrid IAM and IAG architectures which allow managing all identities and access in a consistent way.
Following Martin, Gerrit Pot and Ulrich Häring from Atos unveil the new Atos Identity Federation Hub cloud service and illustrate how the service helps enterprises to scale the level of security, transparency and compliance into the cloud.

With less than 250 days left till the dreaded EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force, organizations around the world are feeling increasingly uneasy. Any company, both large and small, that wants to continue doing business in the European Union must comply with GDPR or face harsh penalties.
With so many different data sources, Customer Identity & Access Management (CIAM) needs to be secure, clear and user-friendly at the same time. That is why the combination of Identity & Access Management and Customer Relationship Management continues to be a core element for any digital business.
