RSAC17 Wrap Up - What you missed

February 27th, 2017   /     /   company news

This year’s RSA Conference (RSAC) was huge: 43,000 attendees, 15 keynote presentations, 700 speakers, 500 sessions, and 550 exhibitors. Here are some of our highlights from the conference.

Identity is key

While RSAC covers all things security, identity management was a hot topic. According to Dark Reading, identity has “become a top concern for CSO’s.” And TechCrunch stated, “identity management companies generated well over $6 billion in acquisitions last year from both strategic and private equity buyers.”

We at OneLogin did our part to add to the buzz, releasing the latest updates to OneLogin Desktop on Tuesday, 2/14, which lets IT teams manage access policies for all company PCs or Macs.

Access Analytics

Another big trend was applying big data to identity: which users are accessing which apps, from where, and how IT can limit that access. For example, if a user appears to be using an app from both New York and London, that account should be assumed to be compromised.

OneLogin announced a partnership with cloud-based log management service, Sumo Logic, making it possible to stream over 200 application-related events from OneLogin to Sumo Logic. This integration makes it easy for companies to see trends regarding where and when app logins are taking place. Organizations can easily spot any abnormalities in app access, making it super simple to pinpoint potential breach attempts.

More Cool Stuff

Our vote for best shirt of RSAC goes to Cisco Umbrella, formerly OpenDNS, who had this throwback t-shirt that made at least one Gen Xer recall one of his favorite hip hop bands, Run DMC:

And our vote for best booth activity of RSAC goes to Hytrust, who came up with an interesting take on the card game, Cards against Humanity:

We received good feedback on our RSA party page, which compiled nearly 70 parties into one handy website. “Numerous people thanked us for helping them navigate the evening activities throughout the week” said OneLogin event manager David Dolnick. We’re glad we could help people get the most out of the after-hours conference activities.

Feel free to email us at events@onelogin.com or or tweet us @OneLogin to let us know how we can improve it in the future!

We want to give a special thanks to everyone who came by the OneLogin booth. We had an amazing time talking the latest and greatest around identity and access management with you We’ll see you next year at RSA 2018!
