Adding Depth to Your IAM: Automating Microsoft Active Directory and Azure AD Administration
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, April 30, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
IAM and therein IGA (Identity Governance & Administration) focuses on managing identities and their access across a variety of systems.
That is essential, particularly for heterogeneous environments. However, there are two aspects that aren’t well-addressed by many of today’s IGA products:
- In-depth management of Active Directory, Azure AD, Office 365 and other core infrastructure elements, from creating mailboxes to in-depth access control in AD and on file servers
- Lightweight implementations for SMBs that don’t need the full breadth in capabilities
Where these requirements aren’t served well by existing IGA implementations or where these are just too complex for the customer’s IT infrastructure, targeted tools that work around Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and, nowadays, Azure AD, come into play – with the depth, adding to the breadth of IGA, or as standalone solutions for customers that don’t have and need a full IGA solution.
In this webinar, we will look at how a complete IAM infrastructure looks like and which capabilities are best provided by which tools, for different scenarios:
- Common IT infrastructure patterns, on premises, hybrid, and cloud, that need to be served by IAM
- IAM capabilities required for managing breadth and depth of such environments
- The role AD-centric tools can serve and where they complement common IGA tools
- Innovative capabilities to look at
In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about various patterns of IT infrastructures, the critical IAM capabilities for these environments, and the specific role and need for AD-centric tools.
In the second part, Jay Reddy of ManageEngine, will go into more detail and look at advanced capabilities such as Adaptive Policy-based Access Management, User Behavior Analytics, Adaptive Authentication and others that enhance the value of such tools.
ManageEngine is bringing IT together for IT teams that need to deliver real-time services and support. Worldwide, established and emerging enterprises -including more than 60 percent of the Fortune 500 - rely on our real-time IT management tools to ensure tight business-IT alignment and optimal performance of their IT infrastructure, including networks, servers, applications, desktops and more.
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.
Come to the place where the Digital Transformation is happening. The European Identity & Cloud Conference, held from September 13 - 16, 2021, offers a mixture of best practice discussions, visionary presentations, and networking opportunities with a future-oriented community. More than 1000 thought leaders, leading vendors, analysts, executives, and end-users get together in Munich to be inspired by a list of world-class speakers.
