DETROIT, Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS), provider of a leading cloud engagement platform, today announced that it will address cloud security experts at the Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit. Halim Cho, Director of Product Marketing for Covisint's cloud identity solutions will speak on "The Internet of Things--The Future of IAM Is Now."

Covisint will detail the profound importance of secure, trusted cloud identity and access management (IAM) enabling the "Internet of Things" to become a widespread reality that will drive profits, enable new business models and create competitive advantage. Cho will explain how "connected things" enable new business opportunities and why this requires a new approach to identity management.

"Simply put, virtually everything will be connected--and cloud-based IAM is the foundation on which these connections will be based," said Cho. "In this new era, only those that broker identities through the cloud in a trusted, independent way will be successful."

Who should attend: VPs of technology, security and identity; executives; CSOs,
CIOs, directors, managers and security technicians; and
anyone interested in how the cloud can effectively and
efficiently be leveraged to address identity threats
