While the 2019 Micro Focus Cybersecurity Summit has come and gone, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have access to the latest presentations covering security trends and solutions coming out of Micro Focus. Since it’s my area of specialty I’m going to talk about the Identity and Access Management (IAM) sessions that show up as the middle section on the “Content on Demand” page.
Based on my experience with customers, rarely is there a roadmap discussion where customers don’t learn something new. Not just the future stuff coming down the pike, but also what’s in the product today. The IAM roadmap presentations might very well kick off a discussion with your Micro Focus partner or sales rep to better use what you’ve already purchased.
Another noteworthy session is called "Mitigate Your Biggest Security Risk: Privileged Identities." That session starts by covering the root causes of specific risks, then moves on to the key capabilities of NetIQ Privileged Account Manager. Paul Jones from Cerner then explains their strategy and approach for securing privileged users as well as the tangible results they've seen.
In the session that I participated in, Gireesh Kumar introduces the latest IAM offering - NetIQ Secure API Manager, which has become an essential component of access management. In this session, I cover market trends in API usage and vulnerabilities, then Gireesh goes into detail on how Secure API Manager can be used to extend the coverage of your access management environment. If you have IAM responsibilities within your organization, this is a must-see session.
