With the recent unveiling of systematic and large scale espionage activities conducted by US government agencies, the level of trust into cloud services run and controlled by 3rd parties has reached a new low. Google, Facebook, Skype, Apple, Verizon and many other service providers did open their databases to NSA and enabled them to search your mails and documents for information considered as valuable in whatever context. In this webinar, KuppingerCole´s Senior Analyst Mike Small will give you an introduction on how to identify the key assurance challenges of the different kinds of Cloud Computing and how to put into context the risk of becoming a victim of economic espionage through usage of KuppingerCole’s approach to selecting and assuring cloud services.

When it comes to identity management many companies depend heavily on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). This high degree of dependency on one service can become a problem when this service faces an outage. Also, respective of the requirements companies have, all services have certain limitations which are sometimes necessary to overcome. Many cyberattacks are perpetrated via staff endpoint devices (computers, smartphones or even printers). This necessitates a fine-mesh risk management approach with a centralized solution, called Identity Fabric at KuppingerCole.
