Lighthouse Gateway Identity and Access Management for Cloud Environments

Lighthouse Computer Services : 09 April, 2010  (New Product)
Lighthouse is attending the International Cloud Computing Conference with presentations and demonstrations centring around the company's Gateway cloud-based Identity and Access Management system
Lighthouse Security Group is a Bronze Sponsor of the Fifth International Cloud Computing Conference and Expo, to be held April 19-21 at the Jacob Javits Convention Centre in New York City. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the award-winning Lighthouse Gateway cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution, which delivers all the benefits of IAM at a fraction of the cost of deploying a conventional on-premise infrastructure.

Technical Session Delivered by Lighthouse Security Group: "Identity and Access Management: Abandoning the Burden by Embracing the Cloud"

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a complex challenge faced by organizations worldwide, and the introduction of cloud applications threatens to further exacerbate the matter. IAM solutions have recently emerged that use the public cloud to achieve deep cost reductions without diluting performance. Join the Lighthouse Security Group for a discussion on the fundamentals of IAM in your on-premise and cloud-based hybrid application ecosystem.

In his presentation, "Identity and Access Management: Abandoning the Burden by Embracing the Cloud," Eric Maass, Enterprise Security Solutions Director of the Lighthouse Security Group, will discuss the core challenges that face every organization, such as SSO, Access Controls, Identity Provisioning, and Federation, and will take a deeper look into the components of a comprehensive IAM system. He will specifically address the extension of IAM to the cloud and identity integration with SaaS partners, and share critical information required to achieve powerful ROI while avoiding pitfalls that may compromise your organization's security.

Maass will deliver this presentation in the Demo Theatre at 5:40PM on April 20 as part of Track 4 - The Cloud from All Angles, Session 11.

Lunchtime Power Panel: "Who's Doing What (and Where) with Cloud Computing?"

Maass will also participate in the event's lunchtime power panel discussion at 1:10PM on April 21, as one of several cloud industry experts with perspective on the evolution of Cloud Computing and how the Cloud ecosystem is constantly evolving.

Exhibit Pavilion: See the Lighthouse Gateway Cloud-Based IAM Solution

In the exhibit pavilion at booth # 332, Lighthouse will demonstrate the benefits of moving the IAM infrastructure into the cloud. IAM has become a critical component of today's security infrastructure due to heightened risks, regulatory compliance and corporate responsibility. However, purchasing, deploying and maintaining a conventional on-premise IAM infrastructure can be costly and complex. Lighthouse Gateway is a compliant, industry-leading, open standards-based IAM solution that costs companies 30 percent to 60 percent less than a traditional IAM platform over the first three years of operation. Built on a security model that has been proven in operational use for the US Air Force, Lighthouse Gateway is a military-grade security solution made affordable.

"Traditional IAM platforms require significant upfront investments and increase operational costs for staff, maintenance and upgrades," said Maass. "The cloud-based approach of Lighthouse Gateway enables us to deliver a best-of-breed, turnkey IAM solution for a fraction of the conventional cost of ownership. Gateway is not only a prime example of the benefits of Cloud Computing but a proven solution organizations can leverage today."

At the heart of Lighthouse Gateway is a fully integrated and optimised blend of security software from IBM Tivoli.

Tivoli IAM software administers, secures and monitors identities, roles, and entitlements with efficient lifecycle management, access controls and compliance auditing. Every day, hundreds of millions of users leverage the power of Tivoli IAM to obtain secure access to thousands of applications and services, at thousands of organizations in different industries and business sectors around the world.

"By choosing Lighthouse Gateway, you are also choosing the innovation, interoperability and version control inherent within the Tivoli security software suite," said Maass. "Lighthouse Gateway is fully backward and forward compatible with existing Tivoli solutions, enabling you to cost-effectively migrate your on-premises Tivoli environment to the Lighthouse Gateway platform."
