In the 2020 Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management, Gartner has unveiled a new must-have category: Machine Identity Management.
We believe Gartner’s Hype Cycle for IAM has served as the primary strategic blueprint for CISOs and their heads of identity and access management (IAM) since at least 2006. Identity is foundational to security, and IAM is the number one technology class that CISO’s, their VPs and their teams establish as they create their enterprise cybersecurity strategies.Download
Find out why machine identity management is not only critical, but one of the few technologies this latest Hype Cycle lists as both “High Priority” and only “2-5 years to mainstream adoption”. As the report explains, “Machine identity management aims to establish and manage trust in the identity of a machine (mobile devices and IoT devices and workloads such as applications and containers) interacting with other entities, such as devices, applications, cloud services or gateways.”
According to the Gartner Hype Cycle, an “enterprise wide machine identity management strategy is needed to support digital transformation in modern IT environments.”
The intersection of digital transformation and a global pandemic has caused every business to update its strategy. “Two-year plans” have become “Two-month plans” overnight. Infosec professionals need to establish and maintain trusted machine-to-machine connections at previously unheard-of scale, across millions and millions of automated interactions. And they must do it at lightning speed.
Learn why you need to view machine identity management as more than maintaining “certificate lifecycles”. To be effective, your IAM strategy needs to include a holistic view across digital certificates, SSH key management, code signing certificates, and cryptographic management.
Read the report to learn why you need an enterprise-wide strategy, rather than a siloed approach. This is especially true for organizations who are relying on their digital transformation strategies to survive and thrive in the current business environment.
