STEALTHbits to Present at Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit in London

HAWTHORNE, NJ and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/14 -- STEALTHbits Technologies Inc., leading supplier of unstructured data and Microsoft infrastructure solutions, announced today that they will be exhibiting at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit in London, England, United Kingdom starting Monday, March 17, 2014. Specializing in unstructured data entitlement analytics, STEALTHbits has partnered with many of the industry's leading Identity & Access Management providers to integrate access entitlements from File System and SharePoint resources directly into existing IAM platform workflows.

"In many of the biggest and most recent data breach events, it was unstructured, user-generated data sitting on shared network drives and collaboration portals that was stolen and leaked to the public," said Adam Laub, VP of Marketing for STEALTHbits. "Additionally, the data that was stolen was done so by employees within the organization that had access to the data. The real problem was that they had more access than they needed and they abused their access privileges. This is far more common than most would think, and it's a problem that can be effectively addressed with a proper Identity & Access Management solution that has been given the visibility needed into Unstructured Data repositories like File Shares and SharePoint Sites."

Because Active Directory Security Groups are commonly applied to multiple areas of an organization's IT infrastructure (i.e. File Systems, SharePoint, Exchange, Applications, Databases, etc.), changing group memberships to add or remove user access in one location will in turn affect access to all other resources the group is applied to as well. As a result, simply injecting access entitlements into IAM solutions as-is can actually make matters worse by either revoking legitimate access or inappropriately provisioning more access than is necessary. STEALTHbits' ability to situate the proper access model for unstructured data prior to IAM integration provides both the means to achieve and sustain control over unstructured data -- a major win for regulated organizations and those seeking greater security over data that is under tremendous scrutiny and perpetual attack.

Summit attendees who would like to learn more about STEALTHbits' capabilities and approach are invited to visit Stand S2 on the exhibit hall floor at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London. Alternatively, attendees are welcome to attend a live presentation made by Jonathan Sander, STEALTHbits' Strategy & Research Officer, on Tuesday, March 18 at 10:35 a.m. in the Showcase Theater, Solution Showcase, Level-1, titled "Unstructured Data in IAM Programs - 2 Customer Examples."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
