During our session, Secure access for any trustworthy identity, anywhere, to anything, on Wednesday, May 29 at 2:00 PM, we'll update you on Microsoft’s progress to enabling the trust fabric, our vision for how organizations can secure every digital interaction from today into the future. Understanding that a Zero Trust approach to identity security is an ongoing journey, we’ll talk about four focus areas to consider and prioritize, including strengthening your identity foundation, securing access for your workforce and external identities, and securing access in multicloud.

Nitika Gupta, Principal Manager of Product Management for identity security will discuss how to simplify your Zero Trust architecture with universal policies for any access point, from legacy on-premises resources to cloud apps and web. She’ll demonstrate how unified controls in Microsoft Entra Conditional Access can better protect your organization’s applications, data, and infrastructure from threats inside and outside your organization with fine-tuned policies that examine user, device, and network context.​


Also on Thursday, our team of experts Sarah Scott, Principal Manager of Product Management, and Melanie Maynes, Director of Product Marketing, are presenting Secure access with AI: Deep-dive into IAM powered by Microsoft Copilot for Security from 2:35 PM to 3:00 PM. This session delves into the intricate realm of identity protection and AI.
