The average employee today logs into tens of applications to get their work done and managing access is becoming a critical issue IT departments are facing. Traditionally, these apps were all on-prem and IT had easy control over and visibility into who had access to what. Now, however, more employees are adopting cloud apps, often outside the purview of IT. One department is adopting Box, while another is adopting Google Drive, and yet another is adopting Dropbox. And nobody is telling IT. How can IT continue to offer the tools their employees demand to stay productive, while still protecting the organization?
In this editorial webcast, experts from Redmond magazine walk through the best practices organizations are using to corral all those accounts, and make sure they're being used in a way that doesn't compromise the rest of the organization.
We'll cover questions such as:
- How are organizations unifying their identity and authentication processes through Single Sign-On, especially in organizations with an Active Directory environment?
- How do organizations gain visibility into the SaaS apps that are being used by their employees?
- How can organizations enforce secure password policies for their users on SaaS apps that are hosted by third parties?
- What kind of education is most effective in preventing users from reusing passwords or otherwise skirting company policies?
Come away from this session with actionable tactics for minimizing the gaps in your company's identity and authentication security posture.
