Echo in the Silo: The Pitfalls of Managing IAM for Enterprise, Cloud and Mobile
- TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 16, 2013 TIME: 14:00-15:00 LOCATION: AMMERSEE 1
Cloud, mobile and bring-your-own-app are new realities for today´s enterprises. Faced with growing business unit and end-user autonomy, IT organizations must re-evaluate how to address the security and compliance requirements of mission-critical applications and data that span enterprise datacenter, cloud and mobile environments. Without the right strategies and tools for managing the new "hybrid", organizations leave themselves exposed to greater risk. Fortunately, next generation-IAM strategies can holistically address this reality in a way that empowers business units while ensuring enterprise-wide visibility and control over all applications, regardless of where they reside or how they´re accessed. In this session, we will take a look at how adoption of cloud applications for mission-critical data can impact today´s enterprises and will focus on how IT managers can enforce the appropriate levels of security policy and controls through taking a holistic approach to what is rapidly becoming a hybrid infrastructure.
This session will summarize the current reality of native application authentication to native SaaS applications & present its implications on employee productivity. We will introduce the concept of a device ‘authorization agent’ installed on mobile devices and examine how this concept resolves SaaS application access challenges - enabling a SSO experience for native applications as is now possible for web applications. We will present an emerging industry-defined OpenID Connect-based model for the interactions between the enterprise, SaaS providers, authorization agent, and native apps on the employee device.
