In the past, authentication was a discreet decision with the purpose of securing a single access point. Today, the ability to utilize many different types of authentication—from passwordless authentication to certificate-based authentication to adaptive and multi-factor authentication—is the foundation of a robust access management framework.

Now, the entire world is working remotely. How has identity and access management (IAM) changed with this shift? Our panelists will discuss how policy-based access combined with broad authentication methods are becoming critical security mechanisms in a Zero Trust world, and present best practices for implementing an access management framework that can secure multiple access points in a distributed computing environment.
