Identity Management Buyer’s Guide for the SME

Thursday, April 13
8 a.m. Pacific | 11 a.m. Eastern

Accelerating requirements for achieving security assurance while boosting workforce productivity is driving many organizations to adopt more effective identity management technologies. Unfortunately, this has challenged many small and medium enterprises (SMEs), which typically have limited IT management resources and budgets, to offer comparable support to their larger competitors. It certainly does not help that most of the popularly adopted identity management platforms are architected and priced specifically to support large enterprises.

Join EMA Research Director, Steve Brasen, for an informative one-hour webinar identifying the most effective and efficient identity management solutions that will specifically address the needs of SMEs. Included in the presentation will be results from EMA’s recent independent side-by-side product comparison of two of the leading platforms available today: Okta Workforce Identity and the Open Directory Platform provider, JumpCloud.

Other topics of discussion include:

  • Identifying the current and emerging requirements for identity management with SMEs
  • Understanding the unique challenges SMEs face when deploying and managing an identity management platform
  • What elements to look for in an identity management platform architecture that will affect manageability
  • The importance of having an integrated identity and device management solution from a security and access management perspective
  • How to ensure adopted solutions are extensible so they can grow with business requirements
  • Identifying the key functionality for onboarding, offboarding, and managing user access
  • How to right-size a platform to ensure you are not over-paying for features that will never be used
  • Determining the total cost of ownership (TCO) of an identity management platform and how to avoid unexpected expenses
