Why Authentication and Access Management Is the Foundation of Security in a Zero Trust World
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 — 10 am PT / 12 pm CT / 1 pm ET
In a recent survey, two thirds of CISOs cited the increase in cloud service adoption, combined with a lack of strong security solutions, as the main reasons cloud services are the prime targets of attack. As organizations undergo digital and cloud transformation, CISOs and security officers are operating in a high stress environment caused by security, compliance, and manageability challenges.
In the past, authentication was a discreet decision with the purpose of securing a single access point. Today, the ability to utilize many different types of authentication—from passwordless authentication, to certificate based authentication, to adaptive and multi-factor authentication—is the foundation of a robust access management framework.
There are also many specific regulations that organizations need to follow in order to stay compliant, especially in the healthcare world, including HIPAA and ECPS, as well as others like GDPR. The need to be able to have true oversight and visibility into who is accessing which app, when, and how is key to compliance.
Our experts will be discussing how policy-based access combined with broad authentication methods are becoming critical security mechanisms in a Zero Trust world. They will present best practices for implementing an access management framework that can secure multiple access points in a distributed computing environment.
