Identity and access management: Never more important than now

As organisations turn to cloud services and mobile apps to boost productivity and cut costs, managing identity and access to IT resources has never been so important or challenging. In this emerging IT environment, a key challenge is managing access to applications and data by employees and partners from multiple devices and locations without compromising security. IT security professionals will share their insights on meeting that challenge, expanding access management to third parties and avoiding the potential pitfalls.
