Identity Manager

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series What's new in IDM 4.5

Now as an eDirectory fan, there is very much a throwing stones in a glass house vibe when I talk about number of passwords in a system.

If the rate and intensity at which my identity has been stolen in the past three years keeps pace, by 2017, I might as well advertise my personally identifiable information (PII) in blinking neon pink sky-writing and throw Mardi Gras beads from the airplane. First, my grocery store’s loyalty program was breached. Then I was…
