Sila to Supercharge Your Identity at SailPoint’s Navigate ‘18

Arlington, VA May 14, 2018 – Maximizing identity governance with machine learning and analytics to better secure your organization is the topic of Sila’s conference session at SailPoint’s Navigate ’18, May 14–16, 2018, in Austin, TX. The hour-long session, entitled “Be a Superhero: Supercharge Your Identity”, will take place May 16th from 2pm-3pm in Room 201/202 at the J.W. Marriott.

Sila, a Navigate ’18 platinum sponsor, will share its experience, use cases, and lessons learned in helping commercial clients and federal agencies make identity the central pillar of their cybersecurity strategy. Attendees will learn how identity governance is the critical first step to quantifying the risk that identity poses to the organization at any given time, and how to drive toward least privilege while simultaneously minimizing trust.

“Your IGA infrastructure, with its repository of identities and approved access, is the foundational component of your security posture,” said Sila Identity Practice Lead Zubaid Kazmi. “Security is easier to manage if all activity can be traced back to a legitimate identity and an approved entitlement. Analytics and machine learning will compare activity with approved access and supercharge your identity infrastructure by letting you spot malicious activity.”

A review of recent data breaches shows that most happened because an employee’s credentials were stolen, and privileges were escalated until the hacker accessed the company’s most sensitive files. Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, for example, ranks privilege misuse only behind denial of service as the most prevalent cause of breaches and incidents.
