Identity Governance - the Value of Leveraging IGA Functions from the Cloud

Even though companies need to implement Identity Governance & Administration (IGA) solutions in order to stay compliant and support their security, the deployment of IGA solutions still poses a challenge to many of them. Delivering a frictionless experience for users and employees while efficiently managing identities and access entitlements are key to a successful deployment.

Transformation always brings risk and therefore companies need to take a deep look at their approach to governance. How do we manage access in a better and reliable manner in parallel with protecting larger volumes of sensitive data? If most of the data, user identities, and access are coming from the cloud how can we leverage cloud-based IGA?

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What are the main difficulties of IGA implementation & the ways to overcome them?
  • How do we manage digital transformation while avoiding security breaches?
  • How do our identity security policies align with the compliance requirements?

In the first part, Martin Kuppinger, Co-Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at the challenges organizations are facing in today’s IGA deployments, their reasons, and ways to avoid such challenges. He also will put that in the broader context of the overarching IGA trends and look at how IGA, Access Governance, and Identity Provisioning are about to change in modern IAM infrastructures.

In the second part of the webinar, Joseph Dadzie from Microsoft will guide you through Microsoft´s IGA solution - Azure Active Directory as it pertains to key workloads of Entitlements Management, Access Recertifications, Privileged Identity & Access Management and Identity Lifecycle Management as organizations go through digital transformations and consume more cloud resources.

For most IGA solution deployments, it is essential to consider the budgetary and timing constraints together with the seamless functionality. What benefits does cloud-based IGA solutions offer? What is the value of leveraging IGA functions from the cloud? You will learn how Azure AD is poised to set you up for quick wins avoiding the pitfalls of expensive, long-drawn on-premises based IGA deployments.
