The reason companies are considering cloud computing is to avoid the expense involved in building or acquiring the infrastructure, and to some extent managing it. However, without paying attention to the security and governance implications, those cost savings will actually evaporate when they either try to retrofit their existing business policies and controls into the cloud environment, or when they have to deal with the fallout from a breach or issue. In This webinar, Nishant Kaushik (Oracle) and Martin Kuppinger (Kuppinger Cole) will talk about this, and examine how identity services are crucial to making cloud computing viable.
IT endpoints are no longer just workstations and servers confined to corporate headquarters, branch offices, customer sites, and data centers, they can now be just about anything located anywhere, from employee homes to airports, hotels and in the cloud. But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
