LAS VEGAS, Dec. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS), provider of a B2B Cloud Platform that ensures trusted information gets where it needs to go securely and seamlessly, today announced that its chief security officer, David Miller, will speak on the topic of managing the identity of "things" at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit. During the session, titled " Are Companies Prepared to Manage the Growing Identity of 'Things'?", Miller will address how nearly all "things" – including people to machines, such as vehicles, oil rigs and medical devices – will soon have a digital identity, and how organizations can manage these identities while ensuring the secure flow of trusted information between them. The event takes place December 2-4 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV.

"Regardless of industry, enterprises are faced with the challenge of managing the ever-growing number of digital identities and ensuring the secure flow of trusted information between entities," said Miller. "As a result, enterprises need to determine whether they have the strategy, technology and resources in place to meet this challenge. In order to tackle the identity conundrum, enterprises have to ask whether their customers will be ready for the shifting landscape, and the impact it might have on privacy and security – while still delivering a stellar user experience."

Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit 2014 is designed to help attendees gain the latest strategies to help their organizations craft an identity and access management (IAM) vision defined by business objectives, build consensus across stakeholders, set appropriate expectations and execute successfully, so they can accelerate progress at every stage of IAM maturity. As digital-age priorities and challenges alter IAM fundamentals, staying on the leading-edge is more important than ever. Register here:
