2 - Securing this New World with Identity Defined Security
Enterprise-Grade Security Built on 6
Identity Defined Security is a new paradigm for security that makes identity the new perimeter. Instead of trying to keep the bad guys out of a safe zone that doesn’t exist today, the new focus is on enabling the right people access to the right things. To make this possible, the Identity Defined Security platform is founded on six design principles.
All users in all communities are secured under a unified control plane of authentication, federation and access. This includes employees, customers and partners, as well as all identities of devices, clients and resources.
Any connections between users, devices, applications and the identity platform use Internet-grade identity protocols to ensure security even outside of your network perimeter.
Built on Standards
Vendors and services must comply with identity standards, increasing security, interoperability and adoption while reducing the cost of application integration and maintenance.
Web, Mobile and API
Web and mobile applications and API resources are protected using the same protocols, which also accommodates the future wave of smart connected devices coming online with IoT initiatives.
Trusted connections have the capability to grow into the millions and beyond through standards-based protocol interactions and automated registration and maintenance where possible.
To accommodate new and legacy infrastructures, deployment should offer the flexibility and configurability of any combination of software installed on-premises or in a private or public cloud.
