Cloud computing and its explosion of SaaS applications are here to stay. As an IT professional, you must take steps to be sure your users are accessing these cloud services securely. And you must take them quickly, because your users are already going around you. This free webcast will show you how.

Thanks to the rise of identity management as a service (IDaaS), IT pros now also have the option to put their identity service in the cloud while still using their on-premises AD as their identity source. How do you securely extend your corporate identity beyond your company firewall so your users can seamlessly log on to cloud services - and control who has access to them? You use what's known as an identity bridge between your AD and these cloud services.

This web seminar, conducted by Windows IT Pro Technical Director Sean Deuby and Ping Identity's Senior Technical Architect Pamela Dingle, will

  • Explore the identity bridge concept and why every company will need one
  • Explain the dramatic rise of identity management as a service (IDaaS) and why you should be looking at this solution
  • Show how you can extend ADFS and Azure AD to non-Microsoft applications 

You'll come away from this jam-packed hour knowing how to make intelligent decisions on securely connecting your company to the smorgasbord of cloud applications available today.
