Secure Login for Highly-Regulated Hybrid Environments: Avoid Being Forced Into the Cloud
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, April 25, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Unfortunately, for the majority of businesses - especially those operating in highly regulated industries - the cloud future does not look that simple: various business, security and compliance challenges prevent a straightforward IdaaS deployment and force them to design a complicated hybrid architecture to work around compliance regulations, legacy systems, and other issues. But does it really have to be that way?
What if companies could build their own strong authentication platform that offers the newest features, flexibility, and ease of deployment of cloud-based solutions but can be operated completely on-premises? Of course, it should still be able to authenticate and secure access to cloud services along with on-prem apps. In this KuppingerCole webinar, we’ll be looking into “the other hybrid” approach!
These are the key takeaways:
- Key business, security, and compliance challenges of regulated industries
- A better understanding of authentication in hybrid IT environments
- Building a modern workplace with on-premises requirements
- Ensuring the best user experience with secure login across on-prem and cloud applications
In the first part of the webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the latest trends in the field of strong authentication and will outline the challenges that companies with on-premises requirements are facing while trying to adopt them.

With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
