Digital Identities in the Internet of Things - Securely Manage Devices at Scale
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, September 25, 2018 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
The Internet of Things is disrupting all industries and use cases; from customer IoT, to Industrial IoT. Companies are forced to become more innovative with their products whilst their services are being, or will be, digitized. Top drivers of this digitization are eroding margins and changing customer behaviour, whereas new market disruptors face security challenges. The question now becomes: where do companies decide to focus their money and efforts, in order to capitalize on this disruption? Either on business optimization, by doing things better and more efficiently, or focusing on a business transformation, to move from CAPEX to OPEX.
Many IoT programs start with a limited number of devices that need to be managed, but this will grow significantly over the coming years. The sheer number of connected devices anticipated leads to enormous challenges in terms of managing and securing them.
Nevertheless, this is only one part of the challenge; there are also internal ones when looking at IoT initiatives. Such challenges include: security, cost, integration with existing infrastructure, and integration with existing business processes. Digital Identity Management can help companies tackle and solve those challenges in order to become a digital enterprise across business functions.
Join this KuppingerCole Webinar to learn more about:
- How Digital Identity Management can help to solve these challenges
- How the concept of Identity Management for the Internet of Things can be viewed
- How to enhance the customer experience as well as security and privacy at scale
- How digital Identity management can support either Customer IoT or Industrial IoT
In this webinar, KuppingerCole´s Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger will introduce the concept of Identity Management for the Internet of Things.
Following Martin's opening talk, ForgeRock´s Gerhard Zehethofer will discuss how ForgeRock is now extending these capabilities into the areas of managed and unmanaged devices, enhancing the customer experience as well as security and privacy at scale for people, services, and things.

In the era when data has replaced oil as the most valuable commodity, APIs have become an important logistical foundation of modern digital business. As a result, APIs have also become a popular target for cyber attackers, and therefore effective API security is essential. However, focusing only on the operational aspects is no longer enough.
