IDC's Sally Hudson on Securing Mobile Access

After the launch of Identity Management 11g R2, Oracle Magazine writer David Baum sat down with Sally Hudson, research director of security products at International Data Corporation (IDC) to get her perspective on securing mobile access.  Below is an excerpt from the interview. The complete article can be found here.

"We’re seeing a much more diverse landscape of devices, computing habits, and access methods from outside of the corporate network. This trend necessitates a total security picture with different layers and end-point controls. It used to be just about keeping people out. Now, you have to let people in. Most organizations are looking toward multifaceted authentication—beyond the password—by using biometrics, soft tokens, and so forth to do this securely. Corporate IT strategies have evolved beyond just identity and access management to encompass a layered security approach that extends from the end point to the data center. It involves multiple technologies and touch points and coordination, with different layers of security from the internals of the database to the edge of the network." ( Sally Hudson, Oracle Mag Sept/Oct 2012)

ICAM Webcast Replay and slides

On October 10, 2012 Derrick Harcey and I co-presented on how Oracle IDM helps customers address the guidelines of Identity Credential Access Management, from a Federal (FICAM) and a State (SICAM) perspective.

If you missed the webcast, here is a link to the replay:  webcast replay link.

Derrick did a nice job reviewing the various ICAM components and architectures, and then invited me to provide additional detail on the Oracle technology stack.  He then closed by mapping the ICAM architectures to various components of the Oracle IDM platform.

The next webcast in the Secure Government Training Series, Safeguarding Government Cyberspace will be held Wednesday, November 28th.
