Arun Desouza, CISO at Nexteer Automotive, Sibrina Subedar, Director, Product Marketing at Okta
Over their 100-year history, Nexteer Automotive welcomed technology advancements and innovations. They continue this journey in the era of digital transformation to fuel productivity, efficiency and innovation.
While modernizing IT led to automation and productivity gains it also significantly increased their attack surface in a time when cyber threats are all too common. The complexity of legacy infrastructure, on-prem apps, and adoption of cloud apps, produced a multitude of end-user entry points. This complicated both security and user lifecycle management.
Join CISO Arun Desouza from Nexteer to learn how they used identity as the lynchpin to connect disparate systems and applications. He will discuss how they used identity management to:
- Reduce reliance on servers and complex architecture requirements of AD FS and MIM while deploying O365 with Azure AD.
- Improve user lifecycle management by provisioning employees into all on-prem and cloud apps using HR-as-a-Master.
- Integrate identity with network security infrastructure to reduce breaches and gain immediate visibility to when and where threats take place.
Don’t want to miss this opportunity to hear how Nexteer used identity architecture to connect everything and improve ease of use, scalability, automation and productivity.
