Moving beyond authentication and administration to protect your data and applications

Access to applications have been managed effectively for the most part, through authentication and identity management. This has driven the combination of ease of use and security behind explosive growth of consumer and enterprise applications. However, with the proliferation of connected devices and smart phones brings a new set of challenges beyond these traditional controls requiring the use of authorization as a fundamental component for a complete access and security strategy.

With SAP, centralized authorization provides a new mechanism for business users to dynamically control access based on the attributes and information that are available. Centralized authorization policies are extremely flexible and can consider factors such as location, device, status, calculated values, and classification that are not available for the application to consider.

With SAP moving to the cloud, a complete security strategy including Cloud Identity (SSO, Provisioning), Mobile Device Management, and Dynamic Authorization are necessary. 

Attend this KuppingerCole Webinar to learn about: 

  • Current state of the market for handling access from a business perspective 

  • Convergence to adaptive policy-based access 

  • SAP’s security portfolio 

  • Real-world use cases for centralized authorization 

  • NextLab’s vision for access and data protection 

In the first part of this webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will describe different ways of handling the access of users from a business point of view and how they are optimally converging into an adaptive, policy-based access management (APAM), including authorization services.
