Understanding and Selecting IAM for Cloud Services
With stints at Ingres, Oracle, and Unisys, he has extensive experience in the vendor community, but also brings a pragmatic perspective to selecting and deploying technologies having worked on “the other side” as CIO in the finance vertical. Prior to joining Securosis, Adrian served as the CTO/VP at companies such as IPLocks, Touchpoint, CPMi and Transactor/Brodia. He has been invited to present at dozens of security and identity management conferences and has contributed articles to many major publications.
Adrian is a Computer Science graduate of the University of California at Berkeley with post-graduate work in operating systems at Stanford University.
Prior to joining Ping in 2002, Darren was Securant’s first vice president of engineering in 1996. There he managed the first three releases of ClearTrust through 2000, and grew the engineering team to 40 people under tight bootstrap budgets in the hyper-competitive dot-com hiring boom. Darren co-authored AuthXML and represented Securant on the standards bodies. With the sale of Securant, Darren managed the transition of ClearTrust into RSA’s product portfolio and continued to represent RSA on the standards bodies.
Of all the IT security areas, Identity and Access Management (IAM) can be the most complex. It is also an area that is in the midst of a Galilean-scale paradigm shift from centralized identity management of internal users and systems to unified management of internal and external users, across both traditional IT and third-party cloud services.
Register for this three-part webinar series and learn how to:
- Define cloud identity solutions and key issues with identity services.
- Gather a simple but effective reference for IAM architecture and design.
- Reference your organization’s requirements against most common IAM use cases and itemize your needs within a buyer’s guide.
On September 17th, Join Adrian Lane, Analyst and CTO, Securosis and Darren Platt CTO of Symplified Software for the first part of this series, Explanations: Solutions Space, Architecture and Design, to get conceptual awareness of IAM terms and concepts, bring them into sharp focus.
