NextLabs Brings Next-Gen Authorization Management to the Identity Defined Security Alliance

Provides Rich, High-Value Identity-Centric Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) and Enterprise Digital Rights Management (DRM) Solutions to the IDSA Community

San Mateo, California – June 25, 2019 — NextLabs today announced that it has joined the Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), an industry alliance that helps organizations leverage existing cybersecurity investments to establish stronger security postures.

The IDSA is comprised of two dozen identity and security vendors, solution providers, and practitioners that act as an independent source of education and information on identity-centric security strategies. The group facilitates collaboration via a knowledge base spanning practical guidance, best practices, and validated solutions for reducing the risk of data breaches.

NextLabs aligns seamlessly with the mission of IDSA by enabling organizations to collaborate and share data safely inside and outside the organization. As the first dynamic authorization provider in the IDSA, NextLabs will lend its expertise to develop use cases and best practices for granular, real-time access control for data within business-critical applications as well as protecting that data persistently when shared as files. Given that sharing data these days is paramount to innovation and workforce productivity, combining IDSA with NextLabs’ leadership in dynamic authorization, attribute-based access control, and digital rights management technologies will help create a tightly integrated, enterprise-class, identity-centric data protection solution.

When it comes to zero-trust models, NextLabs’ runtime authorization management system gives customers better control over access to vital Identity and Access Management (IAM) services, such as who can get privileged user rights and what they can do with that privileged access. Together with other leading IAM solutions, NextLabs provides high-value solution options to enhance business agility and simplify IT administration while staying compliant with applicable regulations.

“We’re excited to welcome NextLabs to our community of identity and security vendors, who are dedicated to our mission of becoming an independent source of education and information on identity-centric security strategies,” said Julie Smith, Executive Director of the IDSA. “NextLabs’ expertise and thought leadership in the field of dynamic authorization management provides a valuable perspective as we collaborate to help customers control risk through integrated approaches.”

“We’re thrilled to join the growing ranks of the IDSA. As a key contributor to the NIST cybersecurity framework, it makes sense for NextLabs to bring its expertise and perspectives to IDSA where like-minded organizations are banding together to establish best practices and implementation guidance to safeguard information sharing,” said Keng Lim, CEO and Founder of NextLabs. “NextLabs has a long history of delivering the best user experience data-centric security solutions to protect applications and data anywhere and everywhere. Joining IDSA is a testament to NextLabs’ commitment to offering a best-in-class authorization management and data protection solution that works seamlessly with IAM.”
