COLUMBUS, Ohio – EmpowerID, a pioneer in identity and access management solutions, proudly announces its role as a Platinum Sponsor at the upcoming European Collaboration Summit 2024 in Wiesbaden. Alongside its sponsorship, EmpowerID is set to lead a pivotal session titled "Securing the Cloud Frontier: Zero Trust Application Management in Azure," featuring CEO and Co-Founder Patrick Parker.


As organizations navigate the complexities of cloud migration, the imperative for a Zero Trust security framework has never been greater. EmpowerID's session will spotlight the strategic journey towards a fortified cloud infrastructure, with an emphasis on secure application onboarding, intricate access controls, and forward-thinking risk management within Azure's dynamic environment.


The keynote will unfold with a deep dive into the best practices for application onboarding, revealing how to integrate robust security measures from the outset. It will further examine the equilibrium between user independence and adherence to regulatory mandates through cutting-edge governance models, enabling both delegated administration and self-service access requests.


EmpowerID's presentation will highlight the innovative strides taken in recertification and risk management across Azure applications, featuring the automation of recertification processes and the critical role of centralized monitoring systems. These advancements underscore EmpowerID's commitment to enhancing cloud security and operational efficiency.


A core focus of the session will be on the recent expansion of EmpowerID's connector library to include the EntraID B2C SCIM Connector. This pivotal update facilitates the seamless integration of EmpowerID with EntraID B2C, streamlining user management by automating provisioning and deprovisioning processes, thereby minimizing manual efforts and enhancing security.


Through the lens of practical examples and case studies, attendees will explore how the advanced Policy-Based Access Control (PBAC) can refine access decisions by leveraging user context, behavior, and risk assessments, demonstrating EmpowerID's capability to offer a more nuanced and adaptable security posture.


Targeted at cloud architects, security professionals, and IT administrators, this session not only promises insightful theoretical knowledge but also practical strategies to secure Azure deployments within a Zero Trust framework.


With over two decades of expertise in Identity and Access Management, Patrick Parker is geared to impart valuable insights, equipping attendees with the tools to secure and optimize their Azure applications for a robust, secure, and compliant cloud infrastructure.
