Application Security: Externalizing Identity and Access

Presented by

Derek E. Brink, VP & Research Fellow for IT Security, Aberdeen Group

About this talk

For most organizations, both the number and the variety of applications are exploding ... and the business depends on the right users having the right access at the right time. One way to improve the overall security of applications -- and to reduce the overall cost of management -- is to abstract common elements of identiy and access to be managed externally from the applications themselves.
