Sun Gets a New Chief Identity Strategist

Sachin Nayyar, former CEO of Vaau, is now the new chief identity strategist for Sun Microsystems. In this new role, Sachin will be responsible for the strategy and vision of Sun's identity portfolio -- from identity, role and access management to federation and directory server. Sachin has more than 12 years of experience in enterprise security, risk management, identity management and regulatory compliance and joined Sun as part of the Vaau acquisition.

Many of you may have already met Sachin, as he is a frequent speaker at industry events on identity management, identity compliance and role-based access control. Prior to joining Vaau, Sachin worked for Ernst and Young where he managed and led several role definition, identity management, security assessment and design and compliance projects.

Since Sachin joined the team, Sun has already announced Sun Role Manager in March and today, announced the availability of Sun Identity Manager 8.0. With numerous product enhancements and new functionality, such as data export and attestation capabilities, Sun Identity Manager 8.0 is the first user provisioning software to truly provide role-based user provisioning, enabling customers to use business roles for both identity lifecycle management and identity auditing across enterprise and extranet environments.

Sachin has also been traveling all over the world to meet with customers - for example, this week he's in London at the Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit and then will be in San Diego at the Burton Catalyst Conference.

Stay tuned b/c you'll definitely be hearing more from Sachin and Sun's identity group.
