Beyond Usernames and Passwords: 3 Steps to Modern Authentication
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, November 10, 2016 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
This webinar will explain how establishing modern authentication is not a rocket science. It is a matter of choosing the right approach and the right tools. It is about Adaptive Authentication.
Adaptive Authentication tailors to what the users want (convenience) and prefer to use (mobile) – all the while adapting appropriately to access risk (smart), by balancing authentication strength with risk information. Today, we find both stand-alone solutions for Adaptive Authentication and integrated solutions, e.g. as part of Web Access Management and Federation tools.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, you will learn about
- The three steps for moving to a modern, more secure authentication
- Adaptive Authentication explained
- The challenges and pitfalls of Adaptive Authentication
- How to do it in practice: Moving towards Adaptive Authentication
In the first part, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will dive into the details of Adaptive Authentication - What makes authentication adaptive? How can you enable it in your existing infrastructure, based on existing or new tools? He also will look at the broader consumer world and the role Adaptive Authentication plays therein.
In the second part, Brian Mulligan, IBM Offering Manager for Access Management and Directory, will share IBM’s point of view, latest offerings, and projections in the authentication space.

With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
