Emerging Trends and Benefits Of Cloud-Based Identity Management At Cloud Identity Summit 2013


SAN FRANCISCO ---- Next month’s Cloud Identity Summit 2013 will feature three sessions detailing identity management as a service (IDaaS), with Amazon, Identropy and Education Services Australia sharing expertise and experiences on developments and implementations.

The IDaaS world is experiencing seismic shifts in functionality,” said Mark Diodati, conference co-chairperson, Cloud Identity Summit. “We’re excited to bring together speakers with institutional, service provider and SaaS expertise to share first-hand insights on the evolution of identity in the cloud—and deliver guidance that attendees can take home to their environments.”

Moderated by Diodati, the three-part IDaaS session includes:

IDaaS. The Now Big Thing
Nishant Kaushik, Chief Architect, Identropy
There is a misconception that IDaaS is simply a cloud-based, less featured, less secure version of traditional Identity Management (IdM) products that get deployed on-premise. In this session, you will find out that IDaaS is actually bigger, better and stronger than IDaaI (Identity-as-an-Install) across multiple dimensions, whether it is in capabilities, ability to evolve or most significantly, security and performance. This session will detail how IDaaS is changing the IdM game, and how customers are winning.

AWS Identity and Access Management
Jim Scharf, Director, AWS Identity and Access Management, Amazon
Amazon Web Services customers include students, startups, mobile developers, enterprises and government agencies. This session will show how AWS Identity and Access Management provides access control for trillions of cloud resources.

Taking Education (and our Future) Securely to the Cloud
Madonna Derks, Project Manager Identity and Access Management, Education Services Australia (ESA)
In this session, Derks will explain how the Identity Exchange (IDEX) by ESA will be a key component in the delivery of national infrastructure to support the adoption of web services in education and the National Curriculum. The ‘CloudDesktop,’ which is a part of the IDEX solution, will have the potential to be used as an avenue to access Government/Educational applications, content and services, as well as brokered third parties. To date, the ESA-coordinated pilot has created and made available to teachers and students, a seamless single sign-on (SSO) pathway to national resources. The pilot demonstrated the capacity for a teacher or student to easily sign on to local systems within a school and then progress to ESA's CloudDesktop and associated resources without logging in again.

The three-part session series will take place Thursday, July 11th at the Cloud Identity Summit 2013 hosted by Ping Identity®, at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, California.
