BYOIDaaS: Automating IAM Infrastructure & Operations
IAM automation continues to progress as more and more organizations and vendors focus on making their security services consumable through self-service, APIs, and other low-cost/low-friction service delivery methods. But what is to be done about IAM infrastructure, deployments, and general operations tasks? Without paying for someone else to handle it via IDaaS? In this session Jon Lehtinen details how Thomson Reuters used containers, cloud services, & devops to build & launch a brand new, fully global, auto-scaling, & self-healing enterprise SSO service that is defined, deployed, and iterated entirely through code. This automation of SSO infrastructure & operations greatly reduced the time to deliver the new service, improves the organization’s security posture, & provides a superior authentication experience for users and application teams- all at a fraction of the run rate of comparable turnkey IDaaS solutions. Come and hear their experiences, and see how you too could automate away late-night outage calls.
