Upcoming IAM Events from Gartner and OCG

I wanted to pass along two upcoming IAM events:

Gartner IAM

If you're not already planning to be at the Gartner IAM Summit next week, it may be too late for you. But I'll be there and would love to hear what you're up to in the world of IAM. I'm planning to cover the event and/or what I found there here on the blog. Specifically, I'll be looking for what's new in the IAM world (trends, new capabilities, etc.). Reach out if you'd like to meet up.

Oxford Computer Group's
Redmond Identity, Access, and Directory Knowledge Summit 2013

I'm excited about this one. I cut my teeth in the world of IAM on Microsoft solutions (AD, MMS 2.2, MIIS) and OCG was the firm that trained everyone on how to use those solutions. The world has, of course, evolved. But the first annual Redmond IAM Knowledge Summit should be a great one.

Full disclosure: STEALTHbits is a gold sponsor of the event along with my friends at Optimal IdM. And I will be speaking on Active Directory Unification, which is a hot topic this year and a key enabler for IAM projects. It'll be my first time on Microsoft's Redmond campus, so that should be interesting as well.

If you're planning to be at either event, look me up.

Game-Changing Sensitive Data Discovery

I've tried not to let my blog become a place where I push products made by my employer. It just doesn't feel right and I'd probably lose some portion of my audience. But I'm making an exception today because I think we have something really compelling to offer. Would you believe me if I said we have game-changing DLP data discovery?

How about a data discovery solution that costs zero to install? No infrastructure and no licensing. How about a solution that you can point at specific locations and choose specific criteria to look for? And get results back in minutes. How about a solution that profiles file shares according to risk so you can target your scans according to need. And if you find sensitive content, you can choose to unlock the details by using credits which are bundle-priced.

Game Changing. Not because it's the first or only solution that can find sensitive data (credit card info, national ID numbers, health information, financial docs, etc.) but because it's so accessible. Because you can find those answers minutes after downloading. And you can get a sense for your problem before you pay a dime. There's even free credits to let you test the waters for a while.

But don't take our word for it. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from early adopters: 
“You seem to have some pretty smart people there, because this stuff really works like magic!”

"StealthSEEK is a million times better than [competitor]."

"We're scanning a million files per day with no noticeable performance impacts."

"I love this thing."

StealthSEEK has already found numerous examples of system credentials, health information, financial docs, and other sensitive information that weren't known about.

If I've piqued your interest, give StealthSEEK a chance to find sensitive data in your environment. I'd love to hear what you think. If you can give me an interesting use-case, I can probably smuggle you a few extra free credits. Let me know.
