Mountain View, CA, USA, May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Increasingly, enterprises are adopting open source technology for their identity and access management (IAM) to facilitate innovation; avoid vendor lock-in; and improve cost-effectiveness, flexibility and adaptability. At the KuppingerCole European Identity & Cloud Conference 2019 (EIC 2019), WSO2 CTO and Co-Founder Paul Fremantle will deliver a keynote on the key considerations in choosing an IAM solution and weighing the benefits of an open source approach.

WSO2 is a Platinum sponsor of EIC 2019, which will run May 14-17, 2019 at the Infinity BallhausForum in Munich, Germany. In addition to the keynote, WSO2 IAM and Open Banking experts will present sessions on best practices. WSO2 identity experts also will be available at its booth to demonstrate how WSO2 Identity Server provides enterprises with a comprehensive IAM open source solution.

Keynote on Open Source IAM: Strengths and Opportunities
WSO2 CTO and Co-founder Paul Fremantle will examine the importance of adopting a holistic IAM solution to govern and secure the interactions between the increasing number of endpoints in enterprises—from mobile, web and cloud apps to millions of connected devices. He then will explore the factors that need to be considered when choosing an IAM solution. Finally, Paul will review how adopting open source IAM technology can enable greater agility in managing user identities internally and across an enterprise’s ecosystem. The keynote will be held from 5:00 p.m. – 5:20 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, in the Auditorium.

Privacy by Design in System Design Strategy
WSO2 Director of IAM, Sagara Gunathunga will explore why enterprises should invest in taking a Privacy by Design (PbD) approach rather than simply applying individual privacy standards. He then will assess the impact of each PbD principle and examine how to implement PbD in a system’s design based on proven industry best practices. This session will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at Ammersee 1.

Consumer Consent - The Make or Break of Your PSD2 Compliance Implementation

She then will discuss the lifecycle of consumer consent and the critical factors that affect the success of implementing centralized consent management. Additionally, she will explore the key technical capabilities required for a comprehensive consent management solution. This session will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at Ammersee 1.

WSO2 Demos Open Source IAM Solution Featured in New KuppingerCole Report
The WSO2 booth at EIC 2019 will have identity experts available to demonstrate how WSO2 Identity Server provides a comprehensive, open source IAM solution for managing customer, partner, and employee identities. The software is optimized for identity federation and single source sign-on (SSO) with comprehensive support for adaptive and strong authentication. It helps identity administrators to federate identities, secure access to web and mobile applications and endpoints, and bridge versatile identity protocols across on-premises and cloud environments.

WSO2’s IAM solution is highlighted in the recently published KuppingerCole Executive View report on WSO2 Identity Server, which observes that “Identity Management solutions need to address the growing number of identities associated with applications and endpoints, as well as the ability to integrate with the diversity of application and service APIs.”

In evaluating WSO2 Identity Server, the KuppingerCole report states that, “Using an open source model allows organizations to innovate by extending the open source code base and help avoid vendor lock-in, although it does require an annual subscription to get the full support an enterprise will need.” The report further notes that WSO2 Identity Server “takes some innovative approaches to solve identity challenges in the market today making it a product worth being evaluated.” The full report can be downloaded here: About KuppingerCole Analysts AG

Standard & Poor’s has affirmed Arion Bank’s long term credit rating BBB+ but revised the outlook from stable to negative. The Bank’s short term credit rating remains A-2.
