Axiad’s Bassam Al-Khalidi to Share Insights on Frictionless, Phishing-Resistant Secure Access Across Complex Enterprise Environments

Santa Clara, CA, Aug. 3, 2022 — Axiad, a leading provider of enterprise-wide passwordless orchestration, will be a featured presenter at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit 2022, being held August 22-24 in Las Vegas. Axiad Co-CEO Bassam Al-Khalidi will be joined by Eric Brown, senior director of cybersecurity IAM at Cognizant, in a discussion examining the complexity of passwordless authentication.

Passwordless is hot because it offers a balance between security and usability. But a loophole may exist that can be exploited. Many who have complex IT environments and perhaps existing workflows and IAM investments, often pursue authentication in silos. This fragmentation can lead to gaps and inconsistencies that can leave an organization’s most-valuable assets exposed. Industry thought leaders Al-Khalidi and Brown will explore how taking an integrated approach to passwordless—across all key credentials, operating systems, and IAM ecosystems—can help close those gaps and deliver phishing-resistant workflows, lower friction, and a path to Zero Trust.

Axiad is a premier sponsor of the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit, which brings together a community of trailblazers, thought leaders and industry experts pushing the bounds of IAM. The conference gives attendees the opportunity to access research-backed sessions, get expert advice on specific challenges and interact with colleagues.

“The Devil is in the Details: Not All Passwordless Strategies Are Equal” will take place at 2:45pm PT on Tuesday, August 23, in the Caesars Palace Milano III ballroom. For the full agenda, visit
