It is easy to observe that the cloud accelerates everything. The challenge is to leverage the cloud as fast as possible to gain organizational speed and yet execute with security and agility to protect digital assets that are part of this transformation.

This session specifically meets this challenge by matching speed of need with capabilities of web-scale cloud identity-based access and governance to deliver a rapid set of capabilities for virtual desktop infrastructure that is secure, fast AND agile. The key to meeting this challenge with cloud identity (specifically Identity-as-a-Service or IDaaS) is leveraging its ability to accelerate at the speed of cloud and at the same time align user authorization with the cloud identity so that virtual desktop access is more seamless than non-virtual and at same time more secure.

More than ever, there is opportunity to leverage combined assets of cloud identity and user authorization/governance to deliver a rapid virtual desktop to for both end user access and secure server access. Cloud identity provides unique opportunity to accelerate cloud consumption by the organization to get to access to cloud applications and at same time provide the identity security layer needed to authorize access to virtual desktop applications.

This session will provide both an operational model to operate identity-as-a-service to secure and accelerate access to cloud applications along with user authorization/governance. This session will also demonstrate how to integrate that operational model to support access using demonstration of user authorization flow and application access along with protection with other controls such as FIPS Validated MFA to the virtual desktops. Supporting this operational model, attendees will learn the technical components needed to deliver these capabilities including cloud identity-as-a-service, user authorization/governance tools and cloud based virtual desktop access.

Attendees of this session will exit with valuable information including:

  • Understanding on how to align the organization business value of cloud identity and user authorization/governance to deliver virtual desktop infrastructure.
  • Learn the operational use cases of a technical model for identity-as-a-service to support virtual desktop infrastructure for secure, rapid and seamless access.
  • Learn the components to deploy the virtual desktop in secure and seamless operational model using cloud identity and user authorization/governance tools.
