Aveksa’s Global Customers Discuss Key IAM Strategies at 2012 Insights Conferences

Aveksa, Inc., the leading provider of Business-Driven Identity and Access Management solutions, today announced key findings from its recent global customer user conferences in Boston and Amsterdam. The conferences, held in late October, featured numerous Aveksa customer and partner representatives who participated in multi-day sessions and workshops focused on sharing their enterprises’ Identity and Access Management vision, roadmap and requirements, while exchanging ideas and industry best practices.

This year’s Aveksa Insights conferences were held at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston and the ING Business Center in Amsterdam. The conferences took place over two days at each location and consisted of keynote presentations from leading IT research analysts firms such as Forrester and Kuppinger Cole, customer case studies from multiple Aveksa customers and interactive technical workshops led by Aveksa. Topics included customer success with Business-Driven IAM, Actionable Identity Intelligence, Access Request and Access Fulfillment, among many others. During the conferences, attendees were also given detailed insight into Aveksa’s product vision and roadmap with the opportunity to provide direct feedback to the Aveksa team.

As part of the conferences, attendees of Aveksa Insights were asked to review and prioritize their organizations’ key IAM initiatives for 2013. One clear outcome from the surveys and discussions was that organizations are looking for an automated, centralized, next-generation IAM platform to serve as the foundation for meeting their security, compliance and business goals for the next several years. Key requirements that customers indicated were necessary for this platform include:

  • Best-in-class Identity Management capabilities that support business user-facing activities such as Access Certification, Policy Management, Role Management and Access Request and Approval
  • Integrated support for application and data resources in a unified fashion
  • Ability to achieve closed-loop access changes through a cost-effective access change fulfillment solution
  • An integrated governance, compliance and fulfillment (provisioning) solution
  • Unified support for the hybrid enterprise with an IAM solution that seamlessly handles on-premise, SaaS and mobile applications
  • Integration with the broader security landscape, including pre-built integration with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions, as well as with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions to operationalize IAM as part of key business processes

In addition to these priorities, customers also expressed a strong interest in increasing the scale of their IAM deployments. This reflects a clear trend toward collecting and analyzing extremely large amounts of identity-related data, as well as the need for increasingly sophisticated security intelligence and analytics solutions.

“The 2012 Insights Conferences in Boston and Amsterdam were great forums for our global customers to come together and exchange IAM best practices based on their implementations of Aveksa’s solutions,” said Vick Viren Vaishnavi, President and CEO of Aveksa. “The polling we did at both conferences provided us with valuable insight into the prioritized initiatives for these enterprises for 2013 and beyond. Given how much we value feedback from our customers, it was very rewarding to see how closely those initiatives mapped to the key product priorities we have targeted for the next 12 months.”

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
