Atlanta, GA – February 13, 2012 – IntiGrow, a global security services company, is again sponsoring IBM’s Pulse, to be held March 4 through March 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The event will feature a presentation by Sid Roy, Managing Director at intiGrow, and the Manager of Information Security for an intiGrow client who is a leader in the payment industry. The presentation addresses the challenges and value of identity federation deployment, and its value to business.
Identity federation is a business-enabling service that allows different organizations to provide seamless and transparent services to each other’s clients, staff, and trading partners. Federation allows businesses to establish a trusted corridor through which user credentials pass and allow access to only the correct services.
To enable both business integrity and innovation in today’s environment, security must be built-in and not an afterthought. Evolving business models are driving higher levels of collaboration to support growth, and security attacks proliferate as attackers exploit openings created by this collaboration. intiGrow’s primary value to its federation clients is in enabling them to achieve top-line results. intiGrow’s approach ensures focus on optimizing security investments for business results, achieving a desired security posture, and addressing business and regulatory requirements. intiGrow’s management sees Pulse as an important vehicle for educating clients about these critical business services and processes.
As part of that education, intiGrow will also be conducting identity and access management (IAM) maturity assessments on the show floor. After a 15 minute interview, participants will be able to determine their organization’s readiness for the next level of IAM and increased business capabilities.
Last year, IBM’s Pulse provided attendees with 300 client service management presentations. This year, Pulse, in Las Vegas, NV, will feature still more client-driven sessions. These sessions will serve attendees as proof points of IBM’s service management platform. The sessions will be user, business, and industry oriented.
At Pulse, on Tuesday, March 6, from 3:00 p.m. to 3:25 p.m. intiGrow and their client will present session 2199 entitled “Deploying Identity Federation and Delivering Business Value.” This will be held in the Expo Theater.
