has been dubbed as the conference where "
the world talks security"
and this year the world has been talking a lot about IBM. With new product announcements, several IBM led speaking sessions, client and business partner events, and the SC Magazine Awards, IBM's agenda
has been full and exiciting. While RSA is coming to a close, it's worth noting some of the key conference highlights.
For the past 14 years SC Magazine has honored the achievements of the people and organizations that have made significant contributions within the field of IT Security. With over 650 annual nominations across a variety of categories, these awards take a very comprehensive view of the security industry. This year, IBM Tivoli Identity and Access Asurance
was selected as the Best Identity Management Application. This is an great win for IBM because the dedication to providing innovative security solutions as they relate people and identity is one of the core elements of our overall strategy and of the IBM Security Framework.
The framework represents the way we help organizations approach security from a holistic, business driven perspective, and IBM Tivoli Identity and Access Assurance was recognized as a leader for its ability to help organizations achieve those results. It gives the right users, the right access and information, at the right time.
"It provides identity management from on-boarding users and assigning appropriate access rights, to changing user roles and modifying privileges, to terminating user access rights at the end of the user lifecycle. Access management provides secure authentication of users, including unified SSO (enterprise, web, federated), and enforces access policies once the user has been authenticated.."
