Making the Cloud a Secure and Easy to Use Environment

Most of today’s organizations store even their sensitive data in the cloud. Moving workloads to the cloud results in improved flexibility, elasticity, and reduced time to market for organizations. Nevertheless, companies have to realize these benefits painlessly, while keeping sensitive data secure. Applying an on-premises security model for infrastructure and apps in the cloud can achieve this.
When it comes to on-boarding thousands of business partners quickly, engaging with millions of customers easily, or simply providing a single sign-on experience to new Cloud applications, new approaches are also required.
In this webinar, you will learn more about:
- How to safely extend your on-premises environment to the cloud
- How to manage access for all users to Cloud services
- How to extend your existing infrastructure and build a tightly integrated, hybrid cloud Infrastructure
- How to ensure user-friendly cloud access for your customers and partners
Martin Kuppinger, Principal Analyst and Founder of KuppingerCole, will talk about the various options organizations have to extend their on premises security model to the Cloud and why this is about extending, not adding something disparate.
In the second part of the webinar, Barry Scott, CTO EMEA from Centrify, talks about best practice and how to enforce a consistent privileged access security model across public cloud, private cloud and on-premises apps and infrastructure.
Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege to secure modern enterprise use cases. Zero Trust Privilege mandates a “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege” approach. Centrify Zero Trust Privilege helps customers grant least privilege access based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment.
As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
