The Risks and Rewards of Security, Identity, and Access Integration
Play The Risks and Rewards of Security, Identity, and Access Integration
IT professionals face serious challenges in reducing costs and increasing productivity of their infrastructure solutions while addressing the needs of a mobile workforce, changing regulatory requirements, and evolving threats. As a result, customer demands are driving the industry to a new stage of development--the convergence and integration of IT security, identity, and access management. Convergence offers significant benefits, but also raises potential risks. In this session, we explore the trends driving convergence, outline a vision for identity-centric protection and access, discuss the trade-offs involved, and demonstrate how Microsoft products can be used to implement parts of the vision.
