Managing Authentication and Access for Different Identities in Hybrid Environments
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, June 21, 2018 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
The Digital Transformation is driving enterprises in all geographies and throughout most verticals to become open and connected. These enterprises need to digitally engage with their customers, to technologically empower and mobilize their employees, to optimize their current business processes and to ultimately transform their products. At the same time, large-scale cyberattacks and wrongful exploitation of personal data has reached an all-time high and the associated risks are further increasing.
Individual lines of business are developing their own apps and services to meet their customers’ and partners’ expectations, to attract new customers, to test new business models or to differentiate from competitors and to further strengthen their relations with 3rd parties.
All these trends meet when these enterprises need to find a suitable and cost-effective architecture for securing these digital interfaces and when they need to store, manage, and use identities for all involved parties.
Current challenges for customers are assuring security and access for new digital interfaces, like customer portals, mobile apps and web services that can be consumed by 3rd parties; as well as storing, managing, and using identities of 3rd parties for diverse digital interfaces.
Trying to implement controlled and secure access to cloud-based services for employees or 3rd parties, enterprises often find themselves with a complex patchwork of IT solutions that is susceptible to misconfigurations, full of technical limitations and compromises and, in addition, expensive to maintain and operate.
Achieving a service-oriented interoperable architecture and solution that is capable to support the evolving hybrid multi-cloud environment while meeting the agility-expectations of the business and the convenience-expectations of the users.
