Identity is Security: Avoiding the Pitfalls of an Authentication-Centric Security Architecture
The security landscape has changed in the recent decade, and the methods we used to protect our enterprise networks are no longer working. The network perimeter has dissipated, the adversary has become increasingly skilled at alternative methods to gain entry, and enterprise applications and data are spread across multiple environments, on-premises and in the cloud. With more sensitive information getting out of our control every day, a data breach is just waiting to occur, and the consequences, if successful, can be disastrous for your business.

With the explosion of cloud delivered applications and an increasing need to address the user sign-on challenges it involves, there has been a focus on establishing user authentication as the new perimeter. For years, security experts have been talking about the five A’s of Security: Authentication, Authorization, Administration, Analytics and Audit. With the increased focus on the first A – Authentication, it is essential that this is supported by the other four disciplines with the appropriate level of separation between them.

In this KuppingerCole webinar, we will address:

  • The challenges of keeping IT security current with the latest technology advancements
  • The five A’s of user-centric security
  • Understanding why even the strongest authentication alone does not solve identity security
  • The importance of focusing on identity governance to address the full lifecycle of identity and access manageme

In the first part of this webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will explain how identity can become the center of your security strategy and will give an overview of the complex authorization challenges.

In the second part, Darran Rolls, CTO and CISO at SailPoint, will present his perspective on the potential pitfalls of adopting an authentication-centric architecture, without the appropriate support of identity governance.

Digital Identities in the Internet of Things - Securely Manage Devices at Scale

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.
