The identity management (IdM) market has matured significantly over the past ten years, from early user administration tools that emphasized cost control, to more recent provisioning and access management solutions that focus on improving service levels and operational efficiency. However, the market is once again at a critical turning point. With legislative mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and internal governance initiatives driven by fear of data loss and security breaches, organizations now face a new set of business challenges in the form of increasingly strenuous governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) requirements – issues that traditional IdM solutions were not designed to handle. A new generation of identity management solutions is now emerging to address the challenges associated with analyzing and understanding large volumes of identity and access data and mapping it to compliance requirements, enterprise roles and security policies. Mark McClain, CEO of SailPoint, will discuss and debate the emerging challenges of identity management and how these newer, analysis-driven solutions fill a unique void in the IdM marketplace.
