Everyone is mobile today. People in your organization are accessing their information from anywhere and everywhere thanks to some fundamental shifts in work behavior. Consequently, IT isn't in control of every single software decision any more. The sales director, the Chief Marketing Officer, Joe in accounts—they all make decisions without a single thought about company standard operating environment. As a result, you need user names and passwords for 10, 20, 30, 1,000 different systems. And then Jane in the dev team builds a new expense management platform. Where does she get the ID's from?

You open a new branch office and the VPN keeps cutting out. People can't sign on, so they spend more and more time on social sites.

You've probably faced problems like these. In this session, you'll learn how the cloud can help with Identity and Access Management, with new controls built for just these challenges.

You will learn:

  • The secret to Azure AD integration
  • How to enable access to identity from anywhere
  • How to make on-premises applications more securely accessible
