Managing machine identity in the age of digital transformation

The 2021 Gartner hype cycle report provides us with insights on digital transformation and its impact on enterprises.

As per Gartner, “Digital transformation has led to an explosion in the number of machines — such as workloads, code, applications and containers — that need to identify themselves and communicate with each other. As a result, several technology providers have built tools that can help clients discover and manage machine identities across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Managing machine identities has become critical, as nonhuman entities are now at the leading edge of digital transformation.”

Machine Identity Management: Machine identity management, a key topic discussed in this report has been identified as an emerging area. Here are some key insights from the report:

  • “Secure machine-to-machine communication will be a key factor to consider for today’s security leaders
  • Machine identity management successfully encompasses previously siloed technologies like secret, X.509 certificates and keys
  • As organizations further transform to use more digital services (including hybrid and multicloud), the number of machine entities that need to be managed will increase even further
  • In order to offer higher-value transactions and operations, security and identity must be built in at the foundation”
