The world of identity and access management has spent the last 30 years or more focusing almost exclusively on the enterprise workforce. Only in the last few years has the industry added structured customer access management as a solution. And yet, all identity solutions companies loudly pronounce, "We are Zero Trust."
Is identity itself really Zero Trust? Or does identity have a role to play in Zero Trust? And what about all the other identities? Doesn’t a workforce-only IAM approach suggest a world of "us and them"? And the "them" includes an entire universe of entities and identities that are critically important to your business success, such as partners, full-time contractors, students, volunteers, suppliers and technicians.
Listen in as our panel discusses what all of these other identities mean in relation to security, operational challenges and achieving Zero Trust.
