Symplified to Discuss Identity & Access Management in Today’s Hybrid World at IDM 2013

WHO:         Darren Platt, Founder and CTO of Symplified, leader in Identity as a Service for the hybrid cloud. Platt co-authored SAML and led engineering at Ping Identity as one of the company’s first three employees before joining Symplified. Prior to Ping, Platt was a founder and led engineering for web access management company Securant, which was acquired by RSA in 2001.

WHAT:       SaaS, BYOD, and an ever-growing mix of employees, contractors, customers and partners who access your corporate applications have introduced new complexities to identity and access management (IAM). Recent research shows the average company manages up to 50 on-premises applications, and up to 25 cloud-based apps – and nearly all are enabling employees, customers and partners to access them via an IAM solution. Access to SaaS apps via mobile devices has made doing business much easier and more cost-effective. However, when people use their own mobile devices to access them, IT is often left in the dark about where their company’s data are moving. Providing IAM that is convenient and efficient for employees while providing IT with visibility into application usage is the great challenge of the SaaS era. In this session, Platt will discuss tactics to help you regain control including:

- How to increase corporate security, meet regulatory requirements and improve policy enforcement through increased visibility into user behavior

- How to make your IAM infrastructure immune to the dangers of orphaned accounts

- How to anticipate your long-term security needs in order to implement an IAM solution that can scale with you

WHERE:     Identity Management 2013 — Hotel Russell, London, England

WHEN:       Seminar session takes place at 12:15 PM GMT, 19 June 2013
