Silicon Valley-based Atricore ( is known for offering technologically advanced, highly customizable Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions that are remarkably affordable and accessible to businesses large and small. In May, company representatives from Germany and the US attended Europe's leading event for Identity and Access Management and Cloud Security, EIC 2016.

IAM’s relation to the fastest-moving trends in technology today was the center of discussion throughout the 3-day event. Some of the topics being introduced and debated were: “connected consumers”, the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Block Chain, 3D printing, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). Martin Kuppinger pointed out the long-term trend from a centralized to a decentralized, more difficult-to-control microstructure. Atricore's CEO Gianluca Brigandi was part of the panel on Security through Automation.

In one conversation after another we heard an emphasis on ease-of-use and automation, and we came away with an even stronger belief that our expertise in these areas will be key to successful IdAM for both enterprise and the consumer, as the field evolves to serve the ever-widening circles of connection demanded by today’s technology. Atricore is proud to have been a sponsor of the 10th EIC.
