There is an increasing number of tools to manage cloud environments. Some are, in fact, more tools to manage virtualized environments, whilst others focus more on service management issues. More and more of these tools promise to support hybrid environments as well. However the question arises whether security is covered sufficiently by these tools. The panel will discuss the state of cloud management with respect to the security requirements.

But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
