Identity is Security: Avoiding the Pitfalls of an Authentication-Centric Security Architecture
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, June 26, 2018 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
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.

When it comes to identity management many companies depend heavily on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). This high degree of dependency on one service can become a problem when this service faces an outage. Also, respective of the requirements companies have, all services have certain limitations which are sometimes necessary to overcome. Many cyberattacks are perpetrated via staff endpoint devices (computers, smartphones or even printers). This necessitates a fine-mesh risk management approach with a centralized solution, called Identity Fabric at KuppingerCole.
