Below is a short writeup as a pre-cursor for Centrify's presentation:
Today's heterogeneous and distributed enterprise presents serious identity management challenges for organizations of all sizes. Providing just the right levels of systems access, while effectively controlling privileges, can be very difficult in an IT environment comprised of data center, cloud and mobile systems. Aside from the proliferation of accounts and passwords that must be managed, ensuring these systems are secure and that users can be easily provisioned and de-provisioned becomes more challenging in an increasingly mobile and decentralized work force. Furthermore, proving compliance to auditors can be very difficult when managing numerous identity stores.
Many organizations address these challenges using a “silo” approach. That is, a new identity store is created for each new system. However, this approach makes it more difficult to administer and secure such complex IT environments. Managing user credentials across multiple identity stores often requires additional infrastructure and personnel to ensure all users have only the access they require. Security can be compromised if these systems are not properly managed. Compliance reporting is also more cumbersome when dealing with multiple identity stores.
Address these issues by delivering a seamless, simple and elegant identity management solution using an asset that is very likely already in use in your organization – Active Directory. Discover the benefits of providing one single login for users and one unified identity infrastructure for IT.
