How did the phrase “Russian trolls” manage to take over the news? If anyone knew at the time that these were not actually American citizens, they would have had no power to influence. That’s what a lack of identity context will do to you.
Each one of us has a set of identities that accompany and become relevant in different parts of our lives at different stages. The same is true about the identities in your organization – without proper identity context, you are not able to effectively lower cost, get your employees access to what they need and reduce risk.
However, getting the right context is not a simple task. While there is some information on hand, once a user has authenticated, the less connected he or she is to the organization, the less you will know. But to make the right decisions about who is allowed access to what, about where fraudulent access is happening, or where to increase your controls, you need context – the right amount of information to focus your work and make better decisions. This is where identity context comes into play, and where AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) can help you become more efficient, provide a better user experience, and lower risk.
In this webinar, you will learn more about:
- Why we need AI and ML for Identity and Security
- What identity context is about – and how to gather the required information
- A brief history of identity context - Problem and Solution
- The Identity Utopian Trifecta - Cost, Access, Risk
- Identity context throughout your IT infrastructure
- How to improve access to data stored in files with Identity Context, AI, and ML
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the potential AI and ML deliver to Identity and Security, helping to better deal with information and focus the rare human resources on the critical items.
In the second part, Kelly Grizzle, Senior Architect, SailPoint IdentityAI, will provide a more detailed overview about Identity Context and the potential this provides for optimizing the way we work today in Identity and Access Governance.
SailPoint is the leader in identity security for the cloud enterprise. We’re committed to protecting businesses from the inherent risk that comes with providing technology access across today’s diverse and remote workforce. Our identity security solutions secure and enable thousands of companies worldwide, giving our customers unmatched visibility into the entirety of their digital workforce, ensuring that each worker has the right access to do their job – no more, no less. With SailPoint as foundational to the security of their business, our customers can provision access with confidence, protect business assets at scale and ensure compliance with certainty.
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.
