Enterprise Entitlement Management – Simplifying Management of Complex Authorization Policies
Entitlement is one of many new buzzwords in the identity field, promising to offer the next layer of protection for applications in an Internet environment with much more fine-grained security through enterprise entitlement management, or EEM. KCP believes that the industry is heading toward implementing centralized services that are able to process complex and lengthy decisions so a business application doesn’t have to incorporate all this internally. EEM can automate such tasks as policy administration, decision and enforcement, and vendors are following widely different approaches ranging from federation-based models to the use of open standards. IT security worries and the business needs for next-generation provisioning systems are among the key drivers to be discussed in this panel, along with compliance requirements and process definitions.
