CA Technologies, providers of IT management solutions, has released their identity and access management forecast, highlighting what they believe will be the trends this year for security professionals, which includes the forecast that application, data, network and infrastructure are likely to be software-based via the utilisation of application programming interfaces.
Mike Denning, senior vice president and general manager of security business at CA Technologies, commented that business demands and the growth of enabling technologies will affect security and IAM for many organisations. Key trends include:
1. New security technologies will be developed by mobile device providers, enabling the isolation of data and applications for personal use as more and more people move over to smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
2. As organisations continue to struggle to control network access and the use of online services increases, identity proofing services will be in higher demand.
3. Organisations will call for new identity management, social media and social login initiatives in order to gain insights into their customers’ behaviour patterns.
CA Technologies also predict that risk-based authentication will go beyond the financial services sector as more robust security solutions enter the marketplace.
