There Is No Successful Digital Transformation Without Strong Identity Management

2020 will go down in history as the year in which many companies gave their stagnating digital transformation initiatives a big new push. Due to the pandemic, organizations were forced to rapidly scale up their remote working facilities, secure employee-owned devices (Bring Your Own Devices (BYODs) , and maintain a secure environment for enterprise and customer identities . However, when it comes to their identity architecture, the picture is typically fragmented. They may have a general Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform from one company, a Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution from another, and some other pieces of IAM deployed, but still face gaps.
Hence, there is an increasing need for a convergence of tools and services. What KuppingerCole describes in their Identity Fabrics paradigm at the conceptual level, is increasingly served by vendors offering platforms that provide a single unified view across the entire IAM environment. This enables customers to orchestrate identity events across various types of identities, beyond the employee, and across various identity services that cater for things like access requests, certifications, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and privileged access.
Join this webinar to learn
- Why the paradigm of an Identity Fabric should be your starting point for modernizing your IAM
- Why identity architectures that have developed organically over time can be obstructive in today's digital world
- Why IAM is essential to a successful digital transformation
- Capabilities central IAM platforms can deliver, and how to integrate and orchestrate this with additional services and beyond IAM
- How a single solution can map all your identity events with easy-to-use dashboards and user interfaces
John Tolbert, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will explain why IAM is crucial for modern companies that want to adapt to the digital business world and succeed in digitalizing their services. He will explain the Identity Fabrics model and discuss why and how central platforms could foster modernization of IAM in this context.
He will be joined by Asif Savvas, Senior Vice President at Simeio, who will show how a single platform can save time, money and resources by unifying, simplifying and automating IAM processes.

In the face of increasing cyber-attacks by cybercriminals and nation-states, most organizations are investing in filling in the gaps in their cyber defenses, but as the landmark SolarWinds supply chain breach showed, securing Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is vital, but often overlooked.
