Four big vendors are today getting together to launch a new initiative which they say will help deepen the security organizations can expect when using identity management within an enterprise. The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDS Alliance) is a grouping of Ping Identity, AirWatch by VMware, Netskope and ThreatMetrix and aims to create a unified approach towards identity (at least, unified among this group of vendors). At its heart, the alliance creates a new blueprint that it hopes information security practitioners will use to design a broader, more robust, identity approach to use within their organizations.
