Focus Area: The Future of Identity & Access Management

What is The Future of Identity & Access Management

Who will have access to what? In a complex world where everyone and everything – people, things and services - will be connected everywhere and anytime through a global cloud, IAM is going to remain one of the strongest means to protect enterprise security. Especially when firewalls as security perimeters are not sufficient any more. To take over the leading protection task, however, the IAM technology has to change fundamentally.

Particularly with digital transformation of businesses, IAM moves into the center of operations. The mere defining of roles for individual access permissions is therefore no longer enough. IAM has to become more agile and fine grained. It has to allow for decisions about the access of customers/consumers, employees, partners and billions of things/devices dynamically and in real time. In addition, plenty of users will use different identities (or personas) and switch between them several times a day or even hour, often by deploying different authentication mechanisms.
