Keynote: Making Security a Competitive Advantage

As every business becomes a modern software factory, every user experience will depend on a user interacting with an application. Transforming the business means bridging the gap between security and DevOps and making the user experience frictionless to make security a competitive advantage. Mo Rosen and Sam King will share the CA formula for securing the modern software factory and innovations that build trust between users and applications.

CA Identity Suite Launch and Roadmap

Success in the application economy demands new levels of user engagement, increased protection against breaches and increased insight into effective operation of identity management services. CA Identity Suite has introduced major new capabilities to meet these challenges while simplifying management of user identities. This session will review the CA Identity Suite roadmap and strategy and discuss how these solutions can provide an outstanding user experience, governance of privileged users and dramatically simpler deployment of identity services.
