Are you in control of your information assets? Is your current identity environment difficult to manage and cobbled together over years of changes and updates? In today’s interconnected and SaaS-centric world, managing passwords to hundreds of applications across multi-cloud and on-premises environments is a major problem for users and IT administrators. Having the expertise to govern users access for employees, partners, and customers across these multiple channels drain users’ productivity and burn up valuable administrator time.
Fortunately, new standards and cloud architectures like Microsoft Azure have emerged that allow organizations to take passwords out of the equation, improve user experience, and deliver the right security to any user, in any location, for any app, from any device, at any time. Leveraging the expertise to develop a “cloud-ready” identity strategy, along with a fully-featured Identity managed service that utilizes Microsoft Azure Active Directory solution, ensures your identity is future proof. In this new market reality, organizations of all sizes need to enable Microsoft cloud authentication today around a strategy that will carry them into the future.
Join our featured speaker from Rackspace, Benjamin Villanueva, Microsoft Certified Master in Directory Services, as we explore how a solid Identity and Access Management (IAM) strategy (coupled with a fully managed service) allows customers to provide their end users with a simple, yet powerful solution – a single username and password across cloud, on-premises IT, and 3rd party apps like Office 365 or Salesforce.
