Protecting Cloud Identities using the Enterprise Mobility suite (EMS) and Azure MFA

Ronni Pedersen

The vast majority of security breaches take place when attackers gain access to an environment by stealing a user’s identity. Over the years, attackers have become increasingly effective in leveraging third party breaches and using sophisticated phishing attacks. As soon as an attacker gains access to even low privileged user accounts, it is relatively easy for them to gain access to important company resources through lateral movement.

In this demo heavy session, you will learn how Azure Identity Protection, Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Azure MFA) and the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) suite can help you to protect and secure corporate data and identities in the cloud.

Real-time Configuration & Security Management at Scale

Navin Bagga

As experts in systems management, and with over 20 years of experience in making SCCM work better, we have launched a new product, Tachyon, the fastest platform to query and control all your endpoints. It transforms urgent ad-hoc issue identification and resolution time from hours to minutes.

You achieve this by holding a conversation – live with every endpoint – as if you were at every device. This gives you the confidence and agility to move at the pace of any IT incident, security threat or compliance risk.

In this session we show how to:

•        Slash troubleshooting and resolution times – Find and fix application, configuration and operating system faults across all of your endpoints

•        Faster security investigation and response – Find and remediate the machines on your network that have been cyber-attacked by organized crime

•        Immediately action urgent business requests – Rapidly respond to regulatory compliance, security and software asset management (SAM) audits
