Lighthouse Gateway™ architect Eric Maass to present on ‘Leveraging the Cloud to Meet Your Identity and Access Management Challenges’

LINCOLN, RI — November 11, 2010 — Lighthouse Security Group is a Silver Sponsor of the Gartner IAM Summit 2010, to be held November 15-17 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina. The event will include presentations by Eric Z. Maass, Enterprise Security Solutions Director at Lighthouse Security Group, spotlighting his extensive experience developing Lighthouse Gateway, a robust, scalable and secure cloud-based IAM solution.

A recent Gartner survey showed that leading CIOs ranked IAM as their top security project priority for 2010. The Gartner IAM Summit 2010 provides the practical insight and innovative thinking needed to move forward with an effective IAM solution. This year’s agenda explores IAM’s coming transition from an IT infrastructure to a business intelligence resource. It also focuses on the trend toward innovative new ways to leverage this rich cache of data to deliver new business value and satisfy growing compliance and regulatory imperatives.

The event will feature more than 30 sessions, workshops, Q&A sessions, roundtables and more in three in-depth tracks:

• Foundation & Maturity: Best practices, tools, technologies and recommendations for every stage of the IAM maturity cycle;

• Services & Intelligence: New, business-changing trends — cloud, SaaS, compliance, e-discovery — and their impact on the business;

• Delivering for the Business: Preparing for the IAM transition from IT administrative tool to business intelligence resource.

Maass will present Tuesday, November 16th from 1:10 p.m. to 1:40 p.m. in a session entitled “Leveraging the Cloud to Meet Your Identity and Access Management Challenges” He will also co-present with IBM during a session entitled “IBM: Enabling Smarter Security with IAM,” on Monday, November 15th from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

As Chief Security Architect of the U.S. Air Force Global Combat Support System, Maass accumulated nearly a decade of expertise architecting multitenant IAM systems. Maass pioneered private-cloud IAM designs for Lockheed Martin. Those systems now serve millions of globally distributed Department of Defense users for thousands of tenant communities across logistics, intelligence, finance and medical verticals. Joining Lighthouse in 2007, Maass spearheaded the launch of Lighthouse Gateway, the company’s full-featured, cloud-based IAM offering, taking some of his more aggressive designs to market while building upon a blend of military-bred technology and market-leading IBM software.

The Gartner IAM Summit 2010 will also feature an exhibit floor where IAM tools will be demonstrated by the leading solution providers that sponsor the conference. Attendees can learn more about Lighthouse Gateway at the Lighthouse Security Group booth on Monday, November 15th from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Tuesday, November 16th from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.
