AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 21, 2016 — Edgile, the leading security and risk consulting firm and provider of industry-specific regulatory content libraries, today announced that it will exhibit, stand 113, and present the story behind the security success of a global bank at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, November 29 through December 1, 2016. Edgile also announced that Gartner has included Edgile in this year’s Gartner Guide for IAM Professional Services for North America intended to provide more understanding of the market and its offerings.

“We are very much looking forward to meeting with the industry’s leaders at the Gartner Summit to explore, and share our insights on, the future of IAM, GRC and cybersecurity moving forward,” said Don Elledge, CEO of Edgile. “Our senior professional teams are now seeing the role of security rapidly moving from restricting access within the enterprise to one of enabling businesses to both appropriately share and secure information in order to conduct commerce anywhere, anytime.”

“In the age of digital, every IAM and security professional will need to develop business-driven models to manage their identity and access management, ultimately facilitating the secure and compliant flow of everyday and business-critical information.”

Case Study: Integrating IAM & GRC Concepts to Stay Ahead of the Cybersecurity Curve

During Edgile’s case study presentation, a world-renowned global bank Chief Security Officer and Edgile IAM partner will share lessons learned in converging IAM and GRC capabilities to help them stay ahead of the cybersecurity curve.

The session’s experts will show how building a service-oriented security organization enables enterprises to better address advanced threats and attacks, as well as provides management with more meaningful metrics and analytics for decision making – all enabled through an integrated risk and compliance solution.

“Our goal is to help IAM and security leaders learn how to better and more efficiently build a service-oriented security organization that breaks down unnecessary barriers between physical and cybersecurity,” said Lawrence Wolf, Edgile Partner responsible for the firm’s National Technology Partner Programs. “Establishing the right forward-looking security strategy designed to address the future security needs of your company is the first step.”
