We’re getting ready to head off to las Vegas, where, we’ll be joining our partners and customers at Gartner’s annual Identity and Access Management Summit. This event has grown substantially over the last several years, and we’re looking forward to talking with an expanding field of IAM experts and some old friends, too.

We’re excited to start our week as a sponsor for the Saviynt Converge customer event, a not-to-miss conference that will help enterprises understand the value of Identity Governance and Administration. Axiomatics and Saviynt announced a powerful integration this year at Identiverse, and we’ll be talking more about the benefits and ease this provides for organizations that work with the intersection of dynamic authorization and IGA.

We’ve got a great team heading to the show floor, including some of our top technical experts – I hope you will stop by and say hello – and bring your toughest authorization challenges. (We like to try and stump our resident expert, David Brossard!)

Cloud is certainly top of mind going into next week, and we’ll be sharing more detail on our leading cloud native authorization engine, and the power it’s providing for simple, complex or emerging authorization use cases. It’s the most flexible architecture available today and is enabling access control for cloud migrations, ease of working with containers,  as well as orchestration tools (like Kubernetes).

The time with Gartner analysts is unsurpassed – and we’re hoping to catch as many sessions as possible. In addition to analyst presentations, on my hit list are several great sessions:

If you’d like to chat more about how ABAC can help you get more from your company’s data while improving the security of it, come over and introduce yourself to us, and if you’d like, catch a demo of our dynamic authorization suite. We’ve got some “fun” planned as well, so be sure to pop by and say hello.
