Free Webinar: Simplifying Access Management with F5 & Oracle Aug. 26. 10:00am

Security is hard!  However, the tools that you use to protect your identities should not be. 

Security is hard because of a number of specific environmental, economic and business driven reasons.  One, the threat vectors are growing at exponential rates.  This is driven by the fact that the financial rewards for exploiting data and information are increasing globally.  Whether the data is stolen identities, pricing information for the new release of a product. fraud on internal or external purchases or any of the other 1000 different nefarious threat vectors, businesses and consumers need to be protected.

Two, the number of identities, devices and service providers is also increasing.  The internet is the way we do business globally.  It is the path to which our customers purchase, partners exchange data, and business provide services within their network.  And, at the heart of every exchange of data is an identity.  This identity has critical attributes about an individual that drive the appropriate access to information and services. 

Three, organizations are under increasing regulatory pressure.  Whether it is SOX, FERPA, HIPPA, JSOX, etc. there are access management controls that must be in place to ensure the CFO, CTO and CEO can sign the compliance documents necessary to manage risk in their business. 

This is a complex environment.  Why do the tools that we use to manage access and security within our organization have to be equally complex.  This is why F5 and Oracle have been working together to bring a solution which simplifies access management.  The Big IP Solution is a great way for organizations to simplify access management.  Whether they are integrating multiple Single-Sign-On products with Oracle Access Manager or using this appliance to simplify their IT infrastructure.  The result is faster time to market, faster time to deployment and faster time to security. 

On Thursday, August 26.  We are hosting a webcast that will take you through the solution and talk about why we believe this will simplify Access Management.  Please join us as F5 and Oracle product experts explain this simple solution.
