IDM without integrated workflow engine

Workflowless

MidPoint ditched workflow engine. Scandal! How dare they? IDM without a workflow engine? Blasphemy! Abomination! Workflow was a holly cow of provisioning for almost 20 years.

Except one pesky little detail: it does not make sense.

Evolveum: IT security threats in 2018

IT security threats in 2018: are you ready for them?

2017 was a really great year. For hackers. Many of us heard about WannaCry and NotPetya that took down over 300,000 computers across the world, including the UK’s National Health Service or government agencies in Ukraine. CCleaner, a utility program millions of Windows users rely on to clear potentially unwanted files off their PCs, got hit by a malware. The installer was patched to remove the malware, but only after over 700,000 machines were already infected. […]
