Nowadays, gaining access to almost every type of service requires a cumbersome login and authentication procedures.
On the other side of the 'fence', enterprises are having a hard time managing these processes. The enterprise environment poses additional layers of complications when having to deal with various parties like employees, consumers, and the multitude of devices, which all need to be identified and authenticated. Dealing with these challenges requires a precise and well scalable identity and access management platform. Various new technologies, like blockchain, look promising but the reality is still different. This track will be dedicated to the strategies and implementation ways of identity management for the digital business.
In the last decade, the number of devices connected to the internet has increased sharply. More than 50 billion interconnected devices will be used by 2022. With the rising interconnectivity, the IoT and Industrial IoT devices require their own identity which can prove challenging for current IAM solutions implemented in enterprises. Not only connections between a user and the device but also among the devices themselves will have to be securely managed. Building frameworks where user-device, device-user, and device-device interactions will be treated in a similar manner, will be necessary. Could Blockchain be a solution?
Integrating Robotic Process Automation can significantly reduce costs of IAM and improve its efficiency and could be an answer to managing a huge number of identities of ever increasing 'things' on the internet. Data Privacy, security, scalability and effectiveness remain a concern.
The way how agile digital businesses are designing and delivering value through apps and services to their customers is more and more shifting to a microservices architecture pattern perfectly suited to public and private clouds. Creating new applications as a collection of small granular services instead of a monolithic software block means that they can be developed quickly and that they reflect a decentralized approach which anyway has become a trend in many security and transaction related domains.
Microservices enable organizations to quickly respond to disruptive attacks from lean competitors on the business side, and to new risks on the cybersecurity side.
