About this talk

The cloud is on its way to joining the list of truly revolutionary innovations by combining technology with new business approaches that can bring significant benefits to your organization. The benefits of cloud - agility, flexibility and cost savings – also extend to strong authentication. Thousands of organizations recognize this and are already making the big switch over to cloud based authentication. In fact, analysts predict that more than 50% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations within the next few years. However, as with many ground-breaking innovations, this trend has also brought about some common myths. During this live webinar you will hear Jason Hart, VP Cloud Solutions de-mystify the top 5 most common myths about migrating to cloud-based authentication: • SECURITY: Cloud-based authentication isn’t as secure as server-based authentication • CONTROL: It is complex to set up, and hard to implement • AUTOMATION: Difficult and time-consuming to re-provision existing users, and enrol new users • CHOICE: Only one token choice per user, and can’t use existing authentication tokens during the migration •TCO: hidden service & maintenance costs and high upfront infrastructure costs Join your fellow security professionals to understand the business and technology benefits of cloud-based authentication
