Privilege Management From the Cloud: Go or No-Go?
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, September 06, 2018 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
The digital transformation is changing the way we do business, and it is also changing the way we have to keep our increasingly complex IT infrastructure agile and flexible yet secure and compliant. Managing geographically dispersed cloud/hybrid environments and the privileged access to servers and other systems therein is a challenging task.
Even for large organizations, planning and operating a multi-site Privilege Management infrastructure can be a demanding and complex task. Can Privilege Management from the Cloud solve this challenge? Or is the cost to pay in terms of security and risk too high, compared to the benefits in operations? Or are cloud-based deployments, secured and operated by the vendor, not anyway the better choice in terms of security and risk, if done right?
In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at the benefits and challenges of running Privilege Management in the Cloud. He also will present the requirements for using such environments, including tenant versus provider responsibility and the functional and non-functional criteria to rate when selecting such a solution.
After Martin´s introduction, WALLIX Area Sales Director Stefan Rabben will present two different use cases from heavily regulated industries: aerospace and healthcare. Stefan will focus on the practical side of how to understand and decrease risks associated with privileged accounts and credentials.
During the presentations, attendees can type their questions into a dialog box. Martin and Markus will then answer them after the 2 presentations.

The majority of security breaches and attacks can be traced back to stolen and compromised passwords. Mobile devices are often particularly vulnerable because many users tend to avoid long passwords and special characters.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise. Blockchain Enterprise Days (#BeDays19) will take place on September 18-19, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
