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
Efficiently Mitigating Security Risks in Today’s IT With DevOps, Containers, Microservices, and Cloud Deployments
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.

We provide technology consulting, product selection assistance, profitability examination, design and integration of partial and complete solutions, as well as project management and project planning.
Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions monitor endpoint and network events and record the information in a central database. There, the information is subjected to further analysis, detection, investigation, reporting, and alerting. While EDR solutions may be a good start to protect endpoints, they are by no means sufficient. Instead, Endpoint Privilege Management (EPM) solutions must be integrated to protect the systems from within.
Come to the place where the Digital Transformation is happening. The European Identity & Cloud Conference, held from May 12-15, 2020, offers a mixture of best practice discussions, visionary presentations, and networking opportunities with a future-oriented community. More than 800 thought leaders, leading vendors, analysts, executives, and end-users get together in Munich to be inspired by a list of world-class speakers.
