User-Managed Access Awarded 2014 Best Innovation in Information Security Award From European Identity & Cloud Conference

PISCATAWAY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- User-Managed Access (UMA) has won the 2014 Innovation in Information Security award from the European Identity & Cloud Conference. The UMA protocol was originally designed to help individuals control Internet data sharing and UMA's notion of authorization-as-a-service has generated the attention of modern enterprises to control access to sensitive resources in cloud and mobile environments.

Customers, citizens, employees, and partners all demand dynamic access controls in their online experiences. Developed via an open and transparent standards-based approach, UMA's flexibility toward users and enterprise authorization makes it a key business enabler innovation for the evolution business driving, and privacy respective, identity and access management. UMA has application toward a variety of growing use cases including but not limited to authorization-as-a-service for: Internet of Things, Social, HealthCare, Business Services, University, and Government.

Key to UMA's success is the core leadership team driving the project in the UMA Work Group (UMA WG) and the participation of industry-leading contributors from multiple domains around the world. Learn more about how your organization can participate or use UMA here: http://tinyurl.com/umawg

Eve Maler, UMA Chair and independent contributor says, "We're passionate about making it possible to give data-sharing power to the people, and we believe UMA's unified approach will pay off even more broadly, for enterprise security and, moving forward, even for Internet of Things security and privacy controls."

Maciej Machulak, CEO of Cloud Identity and UMA Vice-Chair, says: "Individuals are increasingly concerned about the privacy of their online data. User-Managed Access gives users back the control of their data and provides them with the insight into how this data is shared and accessed in the Cloud. The Best Innovation in Information Security in 2014 award recognizes the enormous effort of the entire work group towards providing a standard that not only puts the user first but also includes privacy principles at its core. Over the next year, UMA is likely to become even more recognizable by the industry as a modern standard for privacy-enabled applications."

Domenico Catalano, Identity Architect at Oracle Italy and User Experience Editor for UMA WG, says: "Unlocking the value of personal data in a decentralized and distributed system network requires new approaches for protection and security, accountabilities, and rights and responsibilities for managing using data. UMA provides these functions to empower the individual to make choices regarding control and access of their data."

Joni Brennan, Executive Director of Kantara Initiative, says the organization is "proud of the recognition UMA has received. With participation from industry-leaders, UMA is one of our highest-profile activities, gaining attention from around the world from innovators big and small. Kantara Initiative will continue to support UMA interoperability and adoption initiatives through our open and transparent community. We invite all interested parties to join the effort!"
