Single Point of Access: The IAM Strategy at Teleflex
Working across six continents, Teleflex provides medical devices used in critical care and surgeries across the globe. Their products help protect patients from infections and enables surgeons to do safer, less invasive procedures ranging from vascular access, anesthesia and airway management among many others.
Teleflex Incorporated (www.teleflex.com) has a core identity management strategy: one point of access. Beginning as just a temporary fix to decommission the company's Sun LDAP directory, Teleflex began their use of a virtual directory. The virtual directory allowed the company to link all of their separate directory information into one enterprise directory. Using directory virtualization, Teleflex was able to eliminate custom scripting, serving up employee data from SQL databases to the receiving applications without scheduling synchronization tasks.
The enterprise directory has now become a significant part of Teleflex's identity management strategy to improve facilitation of acquisitions, eliminate custom scripting to obtain employee data from Teleflex's HR Vista system and to unify and simplify both application access and the end user experience.
One Identity Service, Many Initiatives: Exploring Use Cases for Identity Virtualization
Modern identity infrastructures are a tangled web of identity sources, protocols, and varies security means. This panel discussion will focus on the challenges around unifying a disparate identity infrastructure for identity management and federation initiatives. The panel will explore how an identity service, enabled by virtualization, can be used to tackle many kinds of identity management challenges, and facilitate the addition of new identity stores and populations. Nick Sabinske’s experience at Teleflex will serve as a catalyst for the panel discussion, while Ulrich Schulz of Radiant Logic will extend the discussion with other real-life deployments, and Fulup ar Foll from KuppingerCole will provide an objective, third party view of the industry.
Some of the points to discuss:
