A Call for Integrated Mobile App Identity Security

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — July 5, 2013


San Francisco, CA — July 5, 2013 — Next week’s Cloud Identity Summit 2013 will gather the industry’s leading mobile experts to engage in an interactive three-part session. The “Mobile Applications: Going Native” presentations will share experiences from mobile architects on integrating native mobile apps into a consistent identity platform and best practices for balancing security with great user experience. 

“Professionals now expect to use the same application models at work as they do in their personal life,” said Paul Madsen, senior technical architect, Ping Identity. “Together at Cloud Identity Summit, top mobile security experts will tackle the issues in mobile identity—single sign-on, user experience, industry standards and cloud and data access— and spark conversations that will give new appreciation for today’s device experience.”

The three-part session will include the following presentations:

Deliver Secure Apps with Great Experiences
Sean Ginevan, Director of Business Development, MobileIron
With a wealth of immersive consumer and “prosumer” applications for both iOS and Android, user demands for enterprise applications are high. Organizations mobilizing business processes must do so on a device of the user’s choice, with an experience the user loves. However, this must be done in a way that conforms to the established security guidelines of the enterprise. With the right approaches, enterprises can strike a balance between the security of apps and great user experiences. We’ll discuss the current state-of-the-art for user authentication on mobile operating systems, along with emerging methods, to provide single sign-on (SSO) capabilities that not only meet security demands but also improve the user experience.

Mobile Identity: Divide and Conquer
Andy Zmolek, Director of Business Development, Enterproid
New techniques for separating enterprise apps and data on employee-owned (or corporate-owned) mobile devices give the enterprise confidence that native mobile apps can be both secure and accessible. This presentation will explore how MAM, virtualization and other emerging dual-persona solutions can improve the mobile SSO experience when native mobile apps leverage the container model to construct a shared identity context.

Mobile Single Sign-On: Extending SSO Out to the Client 
Scott Morrison, Chief Technology Officer, Layer7
Think SSO is just about reducing logins across servers? Think again. In the mobile world, the new twist is sharing sessions across mobile apps on a device. Learn how technologies like OAuth and OpenID Connect can be leveraged by native apps to achieve MSSO.

The “Mobile Applications: Going Native” presentations will take place Thursday, July 11th at the Cloud Identity Summit 2013 hosted by Ping Identity®, at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, California.
