Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) Advances Security Industry with Zero Trust Master Classes

DENVER – (BUSINESS WIRE) – The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) today announced that it’s presenting a six-part Master Class at Identiverse, which takes place in Boston next week, on how identity defined security solves the Zero Trust conundrum. On June 27, IDSA members will present six use case demonstrations to achieve Zero Trust without sacrificing user experience or productivity.

Breaches are becoming more commonplace and attacks more sophisticated. To combat this, organizations must take a Zero Trust security posture. This assumes any device or person accessing company resources cannot be trusted, and should be required to verify their identity. The IDSA provides a set of deployment patterns to provide this Zero Trust solution, regardless of vendor, to guide companies in their quest to secure their intellectual property and other valuable assets.

In an attempt to bridge the gap between skill sets and enterprise identity and access management needs, IDSA has created a series of Zero Trust Identity Master Classes. At Identiverse, IDSA member companies such as CyberArk, Ping Identity, Gemalto, BeyondTrust, LogRhythm, Netskope, VMware, Okta and SailPoint will present best in class solutions to solve for such complex use cases as:

  • Access Management to Verify Enterprise Mobility Management Status of Mobile Device
  • Complete Security for AWS Deployments
  • Adaptive Access Management for Enterprises
  • Delegation of Access Management and Trust Elevation for Privileged Access
  • Access Management Checks for Cloud Access Security Broker
  • Identity Governance Attestation of Privileged Account Management

There is an ever-growing need for qualified security professionals to build out multifaceted security solutions necessary to protect corporate assets. In addition to these Master Class sessions at Identiverse, IDSA makes available on its website a robust library of identity defined security use cases and reference architectures. These assets not only provide best practice information pertaining to an identity centric approach to security, but also provide a solid foundation to understand the complex landscape for any practitioner or professional.

In addition to the Master Classes, the IDSA is holding a lunch and learn with Adobe’s enterprise security team, titled “The Case for Identity Centric Security: Adobe’s Path to ZEN.” Join us on Wednesday June 27 from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. ET at the Plaza Level Cafeteria.

“The IDSA allows enterprises to quickly build a solution based on a set of identity centric security use cases supporting Zero Trust knowing that multiple vendors support that pattern with a generally available product,” says Bryan Wiese, Optiv VP of Advisory Services and IDSA Executive Advisory Board Member. “We’re actively building out new use cases with the help of vendors and identity and security practitioners and adding new vendor members to solve them.”

The IDSA provides a framework for identity professionals to solve complex identity problems with commercially available patterns, regardless of the vendor chosen. These Master Classes showcase the available technologies that solve these problems.
