Wisegate to Release Identity Management Report at the 2014 RSA Security Conference

Austin-based start-up Wisegate, a new kind of advisory service based on the collective expertise of IT professionals, will be releasing new survey results during 2014 RSA Security Conference’s Peer2Peer Sessions. To gain a benchmark of Identity and Access Management (IAM) maturity, Wisegate members commissioned a survey—run by Wisegate—of senior-level IT security professionals.

The results of the survey provide useful guidance to IT executives interested in how their peers across organizations regard their current IAM status, including:

  • Access Management Maturity Level for Unique Person Identifier, Rich Identity Profile, Web SSO, Enterprise SSO, Federation, Externalized Authorization, and Role-Based Access
  • Administration and Architecture Maturity Level in several factors, including Role Management, Identity Bridge, Self-Service Portal, Identity APIs, Role-Based Provisioning, Attestation/Certification, and Request-Based Provisioning
  • External Provisioning and Cloud Systems for credentialing
  • Identity Management Drivers at respondents’ organizations

The full report, titled “2014 Identity Access and Management Maturity” is available to Wisegate members.

As a special bonus, the full report will also be distributed to participants of the RSA Conference Peer2Peer session, “Identity & Access Management (IAM) Maturity: A Comparison Across Companies.”

Session details:
