One IT, One Identity: Mastering the Security Challenge in the Age of Digital Transformation
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, October 22, 2015 TIME: 5:00pm CEST, 11:00am EST, 8:00am PST
A few years ago, KuppingerCole's Analysts came up with the term "identity explosion", meaning the exponential growth of identities organizations have to deal with caused by Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Computing, Big Data, the Internet of Things and more. The digital transformation of business is now raising the impact of this explosion - which means that we have to transform our understanding of identities and access.
Managing access to information requires new thinking about identities and access. Only that will enable us to manage and restrict access to information as needed. Simply said, Identity and Access Management is becoming bigger than ever before and it is one of the essential foundations to make the IoT and the digital transformation of businesses work.
The target is One IT, not a separation of Cloud IT and On-Premise IT. However, there are still many offerings which are cloud-only, even while it is obvious that the reality for most organizations will remain hybrid.
In this webinar you will learn about:
- Why access management is becoming more and more complex
- How to handle new AM requirements
- Why One AM solution independent from the environment is worthwhile
- How you can take back control of your access management
In the second part Brandon Whichard from IBM will talk about the IBM Security Access Manager which enables businesses to more securely adopt web, mobile, and cloud technologies by reducing access management complexities and simplifies user access management for employees, contractors, partners as well as consumers.
Traditional security defenses are no match for today’s well-funded attackers, while disruptive technologies, like Cloud and IoT, introduce new vulnerabilities to exploit. IBM Security, with 8,000 professionals in 133 countries, delivers an immune system of security technology to detect and prevent threats and respond quickly and completely to breaches. During the past decade, IBM has invested more than $2 billion on security research and development, resulting in 3,700+ security-related patents, and acquired 20 security companies to build out its portfolio. Today, IBM Security addresses the evolving security landscape and 17,000 clients’ most critical needs with AI innovation in the cloud and intelligent orchestration.

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.
