Identity Management at Oracle OpenWorld - Monday WrapUp

Oracle OpenWorld has officially kicked off in high gear. There were three highlights from today’s Identity Management activities: 

  • Identity Management Demos: If you haven’t already checked out the Identity Management demogrounds in Moscone South, don’t miss it. This year, the Oracle IDM product team has pulled out all stops to bring together one of the most exciting set of demos we have seen. The 9 Identity Management demos are all designed to prove why Oracle Identity Management is the most complete and most integrated solution in the world. Each demo validates several real world use case scenarios that need an end to end solution. And this year, there is an added bonus. If you check out all the 9 IDM demos, you can enter to win an Apple TV. 
  • Identity Management Keynote: In his general session address, Amit Jasuja - VP of Oracle Identity Management and Security Products, discussed several key identity management trends and how innovation is the key driver behind Oracle’s Identity Management momentum. One of the key industry trends over the last couple of years has been the consumerization of IT and how it has fueled some secular trends like cloud, social and mobile computing. Identity Management and security are now important than ever as workforces everywhere need anywhere anytime access. Amit’s session showcased 3 cool demos –cloud-social-mobile integration, self serve access, and privileged user access control.
  • Customer Successes: One of the best barometers of a product’s success is its customer adoption. This year Oracle is showcasing several case studies that underscore why Oracle Identity Management leads the industry. In Amit Jasuja’s keynote, the CISO of Toyota discussed how Toyota is using Oracle Identity Management to bring social networking straight to your automobile. Earlier in the day, we had ING and Kaiser discuss how they are winning with Oracle Identity Analytics. Later in the day, we had Sasktel talk about how they are leveraging Oracle Identity Management to deliver identity services in the cloud. During the next three days, you will get an opportunity to hear from several other customers who have realized the benefits of Oracle Identity Management.

Layering Enterprise Security with Access Management

As a security professional, one of the surveys I look forward to every year is the Data Breach Investigations Report published by Verizon. In the 2011 edition of the report, there were several glaring statistics. Verizon reports that 76% of all breaches compromised back end servers, 92% of attacks were not highly difficult and an alarming 96% of all security breaches were preventable through simple or intermediate controls. At Oracle, we could not agree more.

Across the enterprise security landscape there are several factors which are increasing risk for organizations. Traditional security has relied on defending the perimeter. But the proliferation of sophisticated attacks internally and externally demands sophisticated defense mechanisms that factor risk into the security equation. Secondly, the modern workforce is increasingly dynamic and mobile. When employees, partners, contractors, customers, suppliers etc all need access to critical applications, access to sensitive information should be restricted to authorized users. Finally, recent IT trends like cloud computing, and mobility have resulted in a proliferation of applications that employees need access to. Applications come in many different flavors (packaged, homegrown, SaaS, mobile apps etc) and when each app has its own notion of the user, how they connect and what they are authorized to do, this increases costs and complexity of integrating security for applications.

At Oracle, our Access Management solutions offer holistic security to help organizations safeguard against security threats, reduce risk, ensure compliance and security for applications, web services and data. In our upcoming webcast on Aug 23 sponsored by IOUG, Eric Leach from Oracle will discuss the latest innovations in Oracle Access Management solutions and how they can help you address your enterprise security and compliance goals.

Register here for the Aug 23 Webcast.
