Among the issues Micro Focus hears from our customers, and partners is how can they ensure a secure, and resilient identity and access management environment in a way that is scalable, adaptable, and geared for hybrid environments.

Learn About Building Resilient Identity and Access Management at Micro Focus Universe 2021.pngWe have good advice to share on this topic and how to get more from your Micro Focus investments via our virtual event, Micro Focus Universe 2021, happening March 23-25. 

One of the aspects we will cover in the Cyber Resilient track at Universe is how you can get more confident with your security posture by automating identity governance, access management and policy configuration. We help this through our security product offerings that will be discussed via customer use cases, demonstrations and roadmap overviews at Universe. Here’s the rundown of the IAM sessions you can expect to see: 

Identity and Access Management Keynote Highlights 

Transformation Requires Cyber Resiliency - John Delk, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Micro Focus Security Products

The Cyber Resilience track keynote features John Delk, Sr. Vice President and General Manager at Micro Focus. During this session John will address the role Cyber Resilience plays in enabling Enterprise Resiliency. Being Cyber Resilient plays a critical role as it builds “shock-absorbers” that sustain business operations, customer outreach, and non-stop business transformation during times of crisis. 

Identity Powers Security - Rob MacDonald, Director of Solutions Marketing

Identity and access management is a complicated mesh of technologies. During this session, we will discuss the key point to a strong security posture that is supported by a tightly integrated IAM ecosystem. We know that identity powers security, and we will show you why that is. 

Identity Powers Security Customer Session - Steve London, Information Security Manager, HonorHealth

IAM is a journey - a long road filled rife with challenges. HonorHealth will share their IAM journey, which is several years in the making. They’ll talk about how they leveraged the Identity Manager and Identity Governance and Administration platforms to overcome their challenges and achieve automated account provisioning and access certifications. Additionally, learn how they integrated NetIQ with ServiceNow and other systems to further enhance their identity and access capabilities, and benefit from the valuable lessons learned. 

IAM - Driving Resiliency in the Time of Digital Transformation - Rob MacDonald, Director of Solutions Marketing

As the world changes, security technology must change, too. The best systems not only provide you with state-of-the-art protection today, but are built with flexibility to drive a resilient security foundation. Identity is that foundation. Check out this session to learn how identity drives cyber reslience and, when done right, allows organizations to adapt to changes far easier than ever before. 

NetIQ IAM – The Vision, the Strategy, and You - Chris Barngrover, Senior Strategist, Identity and Access Management Products

Identity powers security, and during this session, you will get a picture of what the future holds for security. Our vision puts identity at the foundation of your security efforts. Regardless of whether your ecosystem is on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment, managing the identity lifecycle is critical to your success. We will look into our crystal ball and discuss where we believe cybersecurity is heading, and our vision and product strategy to get you there. 

Interset: Driving Analytical, AI, and ML Excellence Across the Portfolio - Mario Daigle, VP Products, Interset & Stephan Jou, CTO, Interset

When you can leverage brands like NetIQ, Voltage, ArcSight, and Fortify across your portfolio, the capabilities you can offer customers are incredible. But when you can also count on a highly skilled, analytics organization like Interset, and start building native integrations, the sky’s the limit. Come hear Stephan Jou and Mario Daigle show you what Interset has delivered in 2020, but more importantly, what’s in the labs for 2021 and beyond.
