Dan Coffing is the CEO of Syntegrity, an intelligent data security services company. During the recent Gartner IAM Summit, Dan took a few moments out of the show to speak with UnboundID about the state of the Identity and Access Management industry, where it's headed in the future and how IAM professionals can succeed in this time of rapid change.
UnboundID: What are some of the biggest changes you are currently seeing in Identity Management?
Coffing: The most significant development for those of us managing identity data is the evolution of digital business. Companies are recognizing that not only must they continue to manage identities internally with increasing security sensitivities, but they must also serve the identity demands of providing digitally based marketing and services to external customer audiences. This radically changes the scale requirements for their infrastructures. Meeting the identity demands of multichannel digital customer engagement requires an exponentially larger scale than managing internal employee identities.
