Synopsis and overview of the session

Improve employee and customer experience with secure identity access management.

Remote work, cyber security, talent shortage, digital surge, these are all the buzzwords you’ve heard from everywhere in the past two years. In the era of digital business, all companies need to focus on not only customers but also employee or partner engagement and experience.

With the benefits such as improving operational efficiencies, employee productivity and security, workforce identity access management (IAM) has enabled many enterprises to be more agile , secure and be able to provide a seamless employee lifecycle management which is critical for a better employee experience.

To apply this similar concept to your customers, customer identity access management (CIAM) plays an important role in improving your customer experience.

Focus Network, in partnership with Okta and will delve deeper into:

  • Why identity access management with zero trust security approach is an enabler of digital business
  • Why modernize your identity access management for employees and customers
  • Why CIAM is a strategic investment for improving customer engagement, experience and loyalty
