- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, May 17, 2016 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
The unstoppable march of cloud, mobile and social computing in the recent years has made a profound impact on our society. Exponential growth of corporate digital assets combined with the overwhelming proliferation of mobile devices put enormous pressure on modern businesses to become increasingly connected. To stay competitive, they must be able to adapt their business models to constantly changing customer demands, technology innovations and ever-increasing number of communications channels with their current and future customers, business partners, suppliers and, of course, their own employees.
With widespread adoption of mobile devices, users are expecting to be able to access critical enterprise data anywhere at any time, from different devices and platforms. Although multifactor authentication is gaining widespread acceptance, it’s already clear that it alone is not enough to ensure secure access to sensitive data without impeding productivity. Authentication must be flexible and adaptive, constantly adjusting access control policies according to various sources of context data.
Strong authentication is no longer enough; intelligent authentication is the future.
This KuppingerCole Webinar covers the following topics:
- Security risks modern digital businesses are facing when exposing sensitive data to their mobile workforce;
- Challenges of securing hybrid environments, as well as mixing managed and unmanaged devices;
- Advantages and shortcomings of various multi-factor authentication solutions;
- Crucial role of user behavior analytics as a part of an adaptive policy-based access management architecture;
- Mobile security made easy: how ease of deployment and ease of use actually improve security.
In the first part of this webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will present an overview of the risks and challenges modern enterprise communications infrastructures are facing and explain how strong authentication fits into the big picture.
In the second part, Niklas Brask, Co-Founder and President at PointSharp, will explain how these challenges can be addressed within a unified hybrid platform combining strong security with advanced user behavior analytics.

As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
