ALISO VIEJO, CALIF -- April 3, 2018 – One Identity, a proven leader in helping organizations get identity and access management (IAM) right, will demonstrate the vital importance of managing identity governance, privileged access management, access management and IDaaS in today’s enterprises through a range of activities at the RSA Conference 2018, which will be held April 16-20 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Chief among the planned events is a speaking session by One Identity Senior Director Jackson Shaw, who will deliver a presentation, titled “Passwords & Fingerprints & Faces-Oh My! Comparing Old & New Authentication,” on Tuesday, April 17.
One cannot overstate the importance of identity and access management, including privileged access management, as key components of a company’s security posture. According to a recent report from Balabit, a One Identity Business, 69 percent of senior IT professionals agree that an insider data breach is the biggest network security risk and 44 percent of security breaches involve users with privileged access. Best practices regarding this aspect of IAM is especially important as an increasing number of organizations undergo digital transformation, adopting new applications and devices that provide dramatic organizational efficiencies but also expose companies to new attack vectors through a mounting number of privileged logins.
This year’s RSA Conference is the first since One Identity’s January acquisition of Balabit, a leading provider of privileged access management (PAM), privileged account analytics and log management solutions. During the conference, in both One Identity’s booth (#3326) and Balabit’s booth (#4603), company thought leaders will demonstrate IAM solutions and discuss how hundreds of organizations in a variety of industries rely on these solutions to bolster their own enterprise defenses. Read this press release which provides updates on Balabit’s plans for RSA engagement as well as updates on two notable industry awards.

He’ll explore how a “stack” or layering of these processes may be the key to achieving the most secure authentication in our lifetime.
