The Future of Federation
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, May 19, 2015 TIME: 6:30am CET, 8:30am GST, 12:30pm SGT, 2:30pm AEST
Federated authentication is the bedrock of secure Cloud access control. It enables organisations to extend their business operations beyond their network boundaries and join identity repositories from multiple sources and access multiple service providers using the same authentication environment.
This webinar will investigate how federation is being used within the academic sector in Australia. It will investigate the drivers of federation – diverse populations of staff, students and researchers, and the multiple SaaS applications that academics need to access.
Mark Goodall from Unify Solutions will discuss the issues that faced the Education Queensland, the department of education in the state of Queensland in Australia, in integration of multiple identity stores and multiple service providers and how they were solved.
André Durand from Ping Identity will present the future considerations that the department will face and how federation will need to migrate in the new era of access control with mobile devices, social networks and internet devices all playing a part in the provision of robust and secure authentication environment.
Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will moderate this webinar and lead through the discussion.

Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
