Bringing you news and commentary on solutions and strategies for protecting critical IT infrastructure in the context of your business.

Embrace your cloud with confidence and control!

Posted March 2, 2012    Peter McCalister

Security concerns continue to be top impediments to cloud adoption but business demands are pushing IT cloud initiatives forward. IT must meet business demands while keeping systems and data safe as they embrace cloud solutions.

At the RSA conference this week in San Francisco, cloud computing is top of mind. Much of the focus is on external threats but the internal threat of employees destroying critical data is an even broader security issue. Managing identity services and privileged access is critical for securing the cloud.

By implementing a comprehensive identity services solution you can integrate and maintain control of your cloud environment by leveraging your existing investment in Active Directory. This ensures that all your systems, including Linux and UNIIX systems, deployed in the cloud are integrated in Active Directory reducing the complexity of managing multiple identities and enabling single sign-on.

You can also increase control of your cloud with consistent policy-driven, role-based access controls that include monitoring, logging, and reporting for demonstrating compliance with regulatory requirements like PCI DSS, SOX, and HIPAA.

As you move to public, private or hybrid cloud, implement powerful identity services with privileged access management and take it with you to the cloud.

Go ahead. Embrace your cloud!
