WSO2 Technology Executives to Lead Workshops on Identity and API Management in Munich, Madrid, Dublin and Seattle

Half-day interactive workshops will explore how to implement IAM and API management reference architectures using WSO2 API Manager and WSO2 Identity Server

Mountain View, CA – October 14, 2014 – Today, the cloud, APIs and Internet of Things (IoT) provide new opportunities for connecting enterprises, their customers and partners. However, with these technology developments come challenges in protecting privacy and the security of data and other assets. WSO2 will present four workshops that examine how organizations can take advantage of WSO2 API Manager and WSO2 Identity Server to optimize their identity and access management (IAM) and API management practices.

The half-day “Enterprise Identity and API Management” workshops will be held in four locations across Europe and the United States:

Strengthening Enterprise Identity and API Management

The workshop will explore the overall landscape and reference architectures for Identity and API management and then focus on understanding how to best use WSO2 products to implement these in an organization.

The day will begin by examining the benefits and challenges of exposing APIs. It then will review a reference architecture for API management based on the OAuth2 open authorization standard. Next, the session will cover the enterprise identity management landscape, including single sign-on (SSO), entitlement, and federated IAM, along with approaches for enabling API, Web and mobile application security.

The session will conclude by discussing how organizations can tailor WSO2 API Manager and WSO2 Identity Server for multi-tenancy, white labeling, and monetization opportunities.
