At the intersection of web, mobile, cloud and the Internet of Things, ensuring that trusted employees, partners and customers can access the right data using the right applications on the right devices is the only way to provide complete enterprise security while enabling fluid, efficient interactions. Traditional identity and access management approaches fall just short of meeting the challenges we face today, such as new user types, distributed apps and a constantly changing threat environment.

The next generation of IAM, Identity Defined Security™ (IDS), puts identity at the center of the security architecture. Identity Defined Security provides real time, intelligence-based access to data and applications by integrating IAM infrastructure with enterprise cyber security technologies. An identity centric approach to enterprise security allows enterprises to optimize their cyber security investment while controlling risk as IT infrastructures converge.

It sounds like a daunting task, but the thought leaders in cyber security are coming together to make this vision a reality.
