The Security & Identity Challenges of Modern IT: Agile IT & DevOps Done Right & Secure
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Security and identity must evolve in order to support today’s IT. While traditional IT appears being rather simple to secure, current security risks necessitate a greater degree of agility: shifting to DevOps paradigms, implementing a CI/CD chain, running services in hybrid cloud environments (or wherever else). This requires a security angle on DevOps, which you might name DevSecOps.
Such an approach includes security and identity as a service, which has been referred to in the past as Application Security Infrastructures. It requires adequate protection of both the DevOps tools chain and the applications that run in containers, which are constructed in microservices architectures and go hybrid. It is about the other SaaS (Security as a Service), the other IDaaS (Identity as a Service) differently from IAM provided as SaaS service, it is about enhancements to traditional PAM (Privileged Access Management). It is about concepts, organization, and tools.
In this KuppingerCole webinar we will look at:
- The security and identity impact of DevOps, containers, hybrid cloud, and microservices
- The return of Application Security Infrastructures
- Identity Fabrics – how do they align with and support changing requirements?
- What to protect in the new world – DevOps toolchain, new services, what else?
- PAM for DevOps – what is different to traditional PAM?
- How to simplify security and identity, when the infrastructure is becoming hybrid and increasingly complex
Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at the changes organizations are facing today, the basics of identity and security services, the role Identity Fabrics play, and what will change in PAM.
Andre Priebe, CTO of iC Consult, will dive into the details of securing DevOps environments and shifting to DevSecOps and talk about how to efficiently set up security and identity for the mixed IT infrastructures of today and how to protect DevOps, at all levels.

As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
