Evolving Enterprise Identity: From the Data Center to Cloud and Mobile

User-driven computing models are generating a need for identity services that sit at the intersection of data center, mobile and SaaS resources. How can you give users the single login they want and IT the single identity infrastructure they need?
Learn how — Join Centrify for a discussion of the architectural, security and operational considerations for adopting a single, unified approach to managing mission-critical servers, SaaS resources and mobile devices.

Overcome enterprise identity challenges:

  • Discover the benefits of centralized authentication, authorization, policy, and auditing for IT resources across the data center, cloud and mobile
  • Learn about approaches for managing privileged user access to Windows, UNIX and Linux servers – both on-premise and in the cloud – as well as apps.
  • Find out how to address password sprawl with secure, controlled access to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps and other cloud services across PCs, iOS and Android devices.

Protecting The Privileged Pathway – Defeating the Insider and Advanced External Threat

Not a day goes by when we don’t read about another serious breach … and in almost every single instance, privileged accounts are exploited by an attacker.  The SANS Top 20, Verizon Data Breach Summary, and Microsoft’s recommendations to protect against “pass the  hash” attacks … they all state that privileged accounts need to be protected and monitored.

Four critical steps to stopping advanced threats:

  • Discover all privileged accounts
  • Protect and manage privileged account credentials
  • Control, isolate, and monitor privileged access and activity on servers and databases
  • Use real-time privileged account analytics to detect and respond to in-progress attacks

Managing Access Policies for Mobile Users

Secure network access has never been more challenging.  First, the number of devices per person today makes it impossible to know who connects and with what device. Is it an employee or a guest? IT-managed device or BYOD?  The next challenge is to securely onboard and differentiate access by user role and/or device type.  This session outlines how dynamic role-based policy management for mobility and BYOD provides greater visibility, network security and IT workflow control.

Network Visibility and Telemetry - the problem too big to ignore!

This presentation will focus on the need within the data center to provide real-time visibility with solutions that are both cost effective and scale at an unprecedented rate.  We will discuss the current threat profile of the network and evaluate how different visibility mechanisms provide the necessary network telemetry data.  We will discuss a solution set that can address these threat profiles in a simple and non-intrusive way by not just focusing on the tap/aggregation elements, but also combining a rich set of solutions from the best technology solutions partners in the industry.

A practical approach to advanced threat detection and prevention

Securing the network has never been more challenging with the continued proliferation of advanced threats that are increasingly targeted, fast-moving and evasive.  Join us for a presentation that covers a holistic approach to preventing security breaches.  We will cover how organizations can limit their risk of exposure to threats by safely enabling applications, can leverage cloud infrastructure to prevent advanced threats, and can integrate their network security with mobile device and endpoint security to properly secure every endpoint in the enterprise.

The Changing Cybersecurity Landscape

As the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, CISO’s need to determine what challenges may exist and what considerations  to make in order to address these evolving security threats.  With the consumerization of IT for example, the organizational parameter can no longer be defined and current security methods are proving ineffective. In order to address these concerns, we need to examine  a different approach to protecting mission critical resources.

Please join us in discussing:

  • Changes and challenges within the cybersecurity landscape
  • Discovering an alternative approach to existing security solutions

Privileged Identity – The Core of the Kill Chain

In the past 12 months, 110 million Americans have been impacted and 432 million accounts compromised in data breaches. We see the same thing in breach after breach – the compromise and exploit of privileged user credentials. It's not surprising, then, that gaining access to those credentials is a critical element of successful attacks. 

In this session, you'll learn:

  • The central role privileged identity and credentials play in the intrusion kill chain.
  • How privileged identity was compromised in several well known breaches, and the results that followed.
  • How to protect privileged identities with technology and best practices.
