CALGARY, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - With identity and access management (IAM) solutions deployed to over 10 million users at over 800 organizations worldwide, Hitachi ID Systems has deep IAM deployment expertise. Hitachi ID Systems customers range from medium to large and typically have heterogeneous IT environments including both on-premises and cloud-hosted applications.

On January 27, Hitachi ID Systems CTO Idan Shoham, joined by guest Andras Cser, principal analyst and risk at Forrester Research, Inc., will host a webinar with a lively discussion about what IAM in the cloud really means, including a variety of deployment scenarios and the pros and cons of each. They will cover the architectural view, what organizations are doing in the real world and how they think the intersection of IAM in the cloud will evolve in the future. The presentation will be followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

"Identity management in the cloud" is an over-used term, which seems to mean different things to different people," said Idan Shoham. "In this session, and in the white paper we have published, we aim to clarify what all the possible configurations are, including pros and cons of each."
