OTTAWA, Ontario, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Avaleris, the leading provider of identity-based security, hybrid identity, and enterprise mobility services to Microsoft clients, today announces the panel discussion entitled "Your Most Pressing Questions in Identity-Based Security," now available to the public on demand.
Centered around questions from the audience, this panel featured three expert speakers from Microsoft: Patrick Arnold, Principal Program Manager in Cloud + Enterprise Security, Alex Weinert, Group Program Manager in Identity, Security and Protection, and Patrick Huff, Principal Program Manager in Cloud + Enterprise Identity, as well as Hugh Lindley, VP of IT Security and Emerging Technologies at Avaleris.
"There is a great amount of consideration evident in the way organizations are approaching cyber security today," said Hugh Lindley, VP, IT Security & Emerging Technologies at Avaleris. "As was evident in the questions posed to the panel, security has come to the forefront of all organizational IT decisions. IT professionals are looking not only to understand the technology options available, but also to assess the provider's investment in security and how the tools will fare in the uncertain future of evolving security threats. There is a new level of sophistication clearly seen in security-driven decision making."
In the increasingly cloud-based world, IT professionals are faced with the elusive challenge of protecting the organization's identities as the new perimeter, the new control plane. The topics addressed in this panel discussion included:
Why should I trust Microsoft with my security?
How much MFA (multi-factor authentication) is too much?
How do we know if an account has been hijacked?
If Microsoft is attacked, what happens to my security products?
How do we protect from the threat of disgruntled employees?
When evaluating identity-driven security solutions, what are the key features to look for?
How do we know which cloud apps pose a threat?
Does Microsoft use these same externally-facing security services?
What roadmap would you suggest in terms of identity management and security, taking a multi-phased approach?
