Casting a Wide Net in a Sea of Identities

Thursday, April 12 | 1:00PM–2:00PM ET | Maryland Ballroom D, Fifth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
As the sheer volume of enterprise cloud applications continues to rise at universities, you've got to reel in the creation and management of staff, faculty, and student identities to ensure authorized access and authentication, as well as validation. Due to repetitive use of university identities across external platforms, a single phishing attack launched anywhere can allow cybercriminals access to university data repositories. Identity management as a service (IDaaS) solutions can resolve this dilemma. Hear how our university implemented Okta IDaaS with built-in multifactor authentication to manage identities across our core university business and academic solutions.

Outcomes: Understand native cloud IdM solutions and the features they offer to improve management and protection of identities across every enterprise app * Define the steps you need to take in planning and implementing IDaaS across your user populations * Evaluate IDaaS for managing identities within your ERP/SIS, as well as other enterprise applications that may offer authentication and access challenges
