Reduce Dependency on Active Directory With Cloud Identity
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, October 27, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 11:00am EDT, 8:00am PDT
When it comes to identity management many companies depend heavily on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). This high degree of dependency on one service can become a problem when this service faces an outage. Also, respective of the requirements companies have, all services have certain limitations which are sometimes necessary to overcome. Many cyberattacks are perpetrated via staff endpoint devices (computers, smartphones or even printers). This necessitates a fine-mesh risk management approach with a centralized solution, called Identity Fabric at KuppingerCole.
Among the many solutions out there, Okta’s Identity Cloud offers crucial capabilities in the areas of SSO, Adaptive MFA, Lifecycle Management as well as necessary workflows. In this webinar, Axel Bock, Area Manager IT Architecture at Paracelsus Kliniken, will explain the implementation process of Okta’s Identity Cloud at one of Germany’s largest privately-owned hospital networks with roughly 40 facilities at 25 locations.
Together with KuppingerCole Lead Analyst Christopher Schuetze and Thomas Heinz, Senior Sales Engineer at Okta, he will discuss
- Challenges, limitations and boundaries with AD and the question of Lifecycle Management
- Recommendations for companies heavily dependent in AD
- How he found the right solution for Paracelsus’ requirements
- What pain points Paracelsus had before implementing Okta’s Identity Cloud
Okta is the leading independent identity provider. The Okta Identity Cloud enables organizations to securely connect the right people to the right technologies at the right time. With more than 7,000 pre-built integrations to applications and infrastructure providers, Okta provides simple and secure access to people and organizations everywhere, giving them the confidence to reach their full potential. More than 10,000 organizations, including JetBlue, Nordstrom, Siemens, Slack, T-Mobile, Takeda, Teach for America, and Twilio, trust Okta to help protect the identities of their workforces and customers.
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.
