“Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 14 ottobre 2019

“Organizations today look nothing like they did even just a couple of years ago. Users now encompass both human and non-human users; applications, data and infrastructure are no longer purely on-premise but largely live in the cloud today. These changes have been driven by the massive digital transformation underway, ” said Paul Trulove, Chief Product Officer, SailPoint. “For much the same reason, identity governance today does not look like it once did. To be the identity system of record that our customers require, we live on the edge of innovation, anticipating where the market will go and continually pushing the boundaries of identity governance.” “Our customers come to us – and stick with us – because we stay in lock step with their needs, working hard to develop unique solutions that solve real business problems,” Trulove continued. “For example, we heard our customers asking for better ways to govern access to sensitive data held in files and folders and delivered File Access Manager to help them do that in the context of their identity program. When the need for a more intelligent and autonomous identity program emerged to tackle the growing complexity of hybrid IT environments, we delivered a new approach to identity with SailPoint Predictive Identity. It is because of our continuous innovation and our focus on delivering success alongside our partners that customers select our identity governance solutions. Ultimately, their success breeds our success.”
SailPoint’s Identity Platform is the intelligent cloud identity platform of the future. It enables organizations of all sizes to drive a comprehensive approach to identity, one that governs all users, applications and data; governs deep across both cloud and on-premises infrastructures and governs smart, creating an AI-driven approach to identity governance. SailPoint was built with innovation as a founding principle and with customer success at the core of the business, consistently maintaining a 95%+ maintenance renewal rate. We believe this most recent Gartner Magic Quadrant placement continues SailPoint’s track record. The company has been positioned as a Leader in every Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration that has been published.

Record Numbers of Online Shoppers Point to Vulnerabilities of Internet Shopping: How to Avoid Identity Theft & Fraud

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 19 novembre 2016

internetFor the first time in history, online shopping has outweighed shopping in stores this year: consumers are now making 51% of their shopping online, compared to 48% in 2015. When people start shopping for their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, kicking off the Christmas shopping season, online hackers start their busy season, too.Nearly half (48%) of consumers who shopped online in the past year have experienced payment fraud – which is nearly 80 million people. Many online shops and their clients are still not aware of simple safety protocols as we are entering deeper into all-digital age.Online stores are huge sites of targeted attacks by hackers who try to steal users¹ financial details and then use it for money laundering or other schemes. There have been too many cases where an innocent user was tricked into believing that they were entering the credit card details on a secure online store while in reality the user was providing their details to a hacker who can then use them to empty someone¹s entire life savings.There are many ways online shopping can become hazardous to any user. For example, a shopping website may be a spoofed fraudulent website set up by hackers to steal data. Or the online store where one shops may not be using a secure encryption protocol to ensure that their customers¹ details are safe during the payment process. Or a customer¹s account on the shopping site may get compromised, giving the hacker access to the account.
In order to stay safe when shopping online, there are simple tips everyone should know about. NordVPN, a VPN service provider that helps secure online experience, advises to follow these simple steps:
1. https The first thing you should always see while making an online payment is whether the payment gateway has an https URL. The Œs¹ in the URL means that it is a secure protocol and your data is encrypted properly.
2. Be wary Being vigilant can help you a lot in the task of shopping online securely. Whenever a website requests for more information than is usually required, like your Social Service number or any other kind of personal information, it usually spells fraud. You should always be cautious before giving your personal or financial details anywhere on the internet.
3. Stay away from public terminals. It cannot be stressed enough how dangerous it is to share your personal or financial information with any website or any person over the internet while using a public internet connection. Public Wi-Fi networks are common hunting grounds for attackers and data snoopers who try to access your personal information and use it for their benefit on your expense. Since public networks have negligible security, you should try and avoid using them while making online payments. If you must do online transactions while using a public network, then you have to use a VPN to stay safe.
4. Use a VPN VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) encrypt all the data you share across the Internet on any website. They are the best security mechanism you can employ to make sure the data you share over the internet is safe from prying eyes and remains confidential. NordVPN is one of the most advanced VPNs on the market that uses the latest encryption protocols. From the moment a user turns on NordVPN, their Internet data becomes encrypted. It becomes invisible to third party snoopers or hackers and even NordVPN. Being based in Panama, which is Internet-friendly country and does not require data storage or reporting, NordVPN keeps no user logs.
5. Stronger Passwords Perhaps the most basic requirement for any online account set-up is using strong passwords. Weak passwords make it simple for hackers to break into your account and cause severe damage. It¹s always advised to change passwords in order to stay safe online, and that means having to use a unique password for each site or account. A new app is 1Password for Families that allows a family to share passwords, credit cards, and other sensitive information. The app remembers everything, keeps the information safe and signs one into their favorite sites with one click.
The popularity of online shopping should not make consumers less cautious. The methods listed above can help anyone shop online securely. If something looks out of the ordinary and the deal looks too good to be true, it¹s important to be very careful before clicking on suggested links. Every year, big online shopping periods, like Black Friday, Cyber Monday or Christmas, make online fraudsters more innovative, but education about fraud prevention and simple precaution can keep all shoppers safe.

Melexis Unveils New Brand Identity Encapsulating Company’s Vision for the Future

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 giugno 2016

MelexisTessenderlo, Belgium. Melexis presents its new brand identity and website. The new brand underlines the company’s ambitions and draws inspiration from the incredible capacity of species to adapt to challenging habitats. “We recalibrated our brand to reflect not only the company we are today, but also our expectations for tomorrow. Our new identity is a clear declaration of our belief in engineering that enables the best imaginable future,” says Melexis, CEO Françoise Chombar.With the unveiling of the new Melexis brand identity and website, the blue and yellow color palette of the former brand makes room for use of contemporary and classic colors such as royal blue and – not coincidentally – electric green. With the new logo also comes a new tagline: ‘Inspired Engineering’. “A brand is a promise about what we are and what we aspire to be. We found that the promise of Melexis could be summed up in those two simple words: Inspired Engineering,” Françoise Chombar further comments. “It is the foundation of our success and our continued growth, but it is also our ongoing mission statement. With our technology we want to help customers to create ground-breaking, highly-differentiated end products that are safe, clean and comfortable. Our aim – to provide innovative technology and add real value to customers worldwide – is still very much the driver behind everything we do.” The new Melexis brand materials take inspiration from nature, specifically the evolutionary abilities of species to thrive in harsh and uncompromising environments. Divided into three classes – ‘Sense’, ‘Drive’ and ‘Communicate’ – the Melexis product portfolio is represented metaphorically by animals that possess attributes that are almost supernatural.As Elcke Vercruysse, Marketing Communications Manager at Melexis, explains “We focused on species with amazing capabilities that have clear parallels to the world of technology, but that are not widely known.” Some examples include:
• The hammerhead shark, which utilizes electro-location to detect prey, is a stimulus for engineers developing advanced sensing solutions – this characterizes Melexis’ industry-leading ‘Sense’ products
• The hummingbird, with its ability to flap its wings around 50 times per second, reflects the motor/control drivers and actuators in the Melexis portfolio – which is covered by the company’s ‘Drive’ element.
• Finally, the way ants employ scented chemical secretions (pheromones) falls clearly in the ‘Communicate’ category, representing solutions from Melexis in the area of wireless and wired devices.
The new brand identity was co-created with team members from all the various disciplines across Melexis’ global operation. “It was important for us to involve team members from across our business to make sure the new brand is widely supported throughout the organization,” states Elcke Vercruysse. “Our new identity shows our ambitions for the future, but at the same time it is firmly rooted in our past and present. That is why it resonated strongly with all our colleagues when we first presented it, and why we are confident it will resonate with all our other stakeholders and customers.” (photo: Melexis)

Report reveals firms may not be taking ‘business process resilience’ seriously enough

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 ottobre 2014

london-centralLondon, 22 October 2014: According to a new report from FT Remark and Wipro (NYSE:WIT), business process resilience is mission-critical, but businesses may be missing opportunities to fortify themselves. In a global survey of 330 C-suite executives, nearly all respondents (98%) agreed that technology risk management is important or very important to the overall running of their firms, and 84% felt their firms’ technology risk management programmes add value. But 35% described their firms’ spending on technology risk management as ‘focused on the next year’, with a further 17% working on a ‘project-by-project basis’. Less than half (41%) described their spending as ‘focused on the long-term’. In addition, only 15% of those surveyed said decisions on technology risk management were made at board level, even though system failures have implications that reverberate throughout businesses’ ecosystems.This report seeks to identify how businesses are rising to the challenges that technology presents, and how they are making their businesses more resilient in the process through strategies, investments and partnerships.“In developing resilience plans, businesses should consider the full range of their operations, from customers to third party suppliers,” Nick Cheek, Managing Editor at Remark, part of the Mergermarket Group, explains. “Businesses should also concentrate on making themselves agile and modular, so that they can minimize the impact of negative events,” he concludes.Technology has also brought fantastic opportunities to businesses of all sizes. Data is power: the more businesses can understand about their customers, partners and products, the more agile and effective they can be.“Firms should think of business process resilience broadly,” says Alexis Samuel, Global Managing Partner, Wipro Consulting Services, Wipro Ltd. “Rather than being considered fodder for CIOs or CTOs, corporates should view these issues as board-level ones that have far reaching implications for disparate business arms.”Balasubramanian Ganesh, Chief Executive – Products & Solutions business, Wipro adds: “Over the years, the level of investment has not kept pace with the level required to address inherent and emerging risks in provision of services to customers. The aggregate impacts of this under-investment, accompanied by increase in customer expectations, have created risks to service which are no longer acceptable. Such risks will typically need to be addressed by a significant and sustained programme of investment.”

Unmasking

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 settembre 2009

Jeff ThomasParis until 29/1/2010 5, rue de Constantine Canadian Cultural Centre Curators : Martha Langford and Sherry Farrell Racette  The Canadian Cultural Centre presents Unmasking : Arthur Renwick, Adrian Stimson, Jeff Thomas, an exhibition organized for “Photoquai” , the New World Visual Arts biennale of the Quai Branly museum in Paris. The photographic works of Arthur Renwick, Adrian Stimson, and Jeff Thomas are diverse, and to varying degrees, confrontational expressions of First Nations identity. Unmasking explores their individual strategies, which can be gentle, campy, or whimsical, while creating conversations between contemporary art, mass culture, and representations of the past.  All three artists use staging, or posing, of the human subject, referring directly or obliquely to photographic documents, such as Edward S. Curtis’s monumental and flawed The North American Indian, as well as stereotypical three-dimensional objects, ranging from sculptures to toys. All three also look to the built environment and the landscape for vestiges of First Nations representation and still active systems of belief. Every work in Unmasking carries signs of rupture in the historical account – signs that draw out specific histories and contemporary realities. Their mises-en-sce’ne and performances are based on sound research and deep understanding of cultural traditions, while firmly implanted in the present. Their images powerfully state: we are here now; recognize us; acknowledge us; deal with us.  The exhibition has been organized by independent curators Martha Langford and Sherry Farrell Racette for the Canadian Cultural Centre, within the context of Photoquai – Renwick, Stimson, and Thomas are featured in the 2009 edition.  Arthur Renwick was born in Kitimat, British Columbia, and grew up in the Haisla Territory.  Born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Adrian Stimson is a member of the Siksika (Blackfoot) Nation in southern Alberta. Jeff Thomas was born in Buffalo, New York, and currently lives in Ottawa.  Martha Langford is an associate professor and Concordia University Research Chair in Art History at Concordia University in Montreal.  Sherry Farrell Racette (Timiskaming First Nation) is an interdisciplinary scholar, an illustrator of children’s books, a painter and multi-media artist whose work combines traditional and contemporary media.

Expo: Dave Green

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 8 aprile 2009

dave-green1London from 8/4/09 to 17/5/09 Another Roadside Attraction Gallery Bayford Street. Dave Green¹s practice can perhaps be seen as an attempt to combine humour with the loftier discourses of art history and critical theory. His work engages the viewer by firstly disarming them through comic intervention but on closer inspection reveals more fundamental issues on the nature of art, representation and subjectivity. For his exhibition Doppelganger at Another Roadside Attraction Gallery he playfully examines the themes of duplicity, replication, identity and dislocation. Central to the exhibition is an aquarium containing two Ecuadorian hermit crabs. The hermit crab, a species with no shell of their own, are known to adopt abandoned shells of other creatures or discarded objects as protective outer amour. Emphasizing the artifice of its environment Green has made a synthetic shell that is a facsimile of the crab, prompting the grotesque notion that the creatures will adopt this crude model as its home. Both absurd and unsettling it addresses questions about the psychology of narcissism and the artifice of modern living. Green¹s photographic diptych ŒFetch¹ depicts a dog chasing after a stick in an anonymous urban park. The horizontal line of the horizon is mirrored in the form of the stick the dog is chasing. A play is made on the archaic meaning of the word fetch as a ghostly double of a living person believed to be a warning of impending death. In ŒWall Film¹ Green sets up a camera in front of a wall and waits for someone to approach him to ask why he is filming a wall. His response is usually minimal, allowing the passer by to project his own interpretation onto the situation. Emanating from the blank surface of the wall these projections of meaning become the content of the film. Dave Green is a recent graduate from Sheffield Hallam University and has exhibited in group shows at the End Gallery Sheffield, V22: The Wharf Road Project and had a recent solo exhibition at Supplement, London (photo dave)

The legitimacy of top management teams

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 27 marzo 2009

In this new position paper entitled “Taking Care of Executive Legitimacy: A Neglected Issue of Corporate Governance,” Isabelle Mari, professor of strategy at EDHEC, and Valérie Petit, Director of the EDHEC Leadership and Corporate Governance Research Centre, examine the reasons for the growing precariousness of executive positions and suggest putting the legitimacy of management back at the core of corporate governance.   The regular increase in turnover in top management teams underscores the growing fragility of the executive position and is symptomatic of a crisis of legitimacy in executive management. Without this legitimacy, the stability and success of the firm are threatened. Particularly in an economic downturn, companies cannot afford to be without solid and competent strategic leadership in order to give themselves the most effective conditions for manoeuvring. This is why it is necessary to take care of managerial legitimacy.  With its study of legitimacy, EDHEC invites academics as well as the corporate governance stakeholders to put this fundamental yet currently neglected issue on their agenda. This position paper is the first of a series whose aim is to offer managerial solutions to the problem of rebuilding top management teams legitimacy.   This position paper proposes a new leadership framework on managerial legitimacy. This model allows us first of all to envisage a measure for managerial legitimacy that would challenge stakeholders and companies about the conditions required to engender top executive legitimacy. Secondly, it is an invitation to identify positive legitimacy practices and for top management teams to reflect on their willingness and capacity to put these practices into operation.

Besides the award-winning label Black Coffee a special recommendation was given to Craig Native for paying tribute to all ‘natives’. “Staying true to his vision for a locally produced, innovative, sportswear label, he had created a range that mirrors the identity of urban South African culture today.
