Hybrid Identity Protection: IAM Expert Daniel Stefaniak

By Sean Deuby May 27, 2022 | General

A recent report from Secure Code Warrior found that just 14% of surveyed developers listed app security as a top priority. What’s behind this astounding (and disturbing) statistic? In the most recent episode of the Hybrid Identity Podcast (HIP), Daniel Stefaniak, Senior Product Manager for Identity and Access Management at Domino Data Lab, provides an explanation—and some illuminating examples.

As a former premier field engineer for Azure AD and program manager on the Microsoft Identity product team, Daniel has a wealth of in-depth knowledge about Active Directory. Join us as he shares several valuable insights:

  • How a focus on performance over security paves the way for application breaches
  • Important considerations in combatting multifactor authentication (MFA) fatigue
  • How Azure AD handles MFA

Have a listen!
