From Virtualization to the Cloud and Beyond

Date: Thursday, April 19, 2012 Time: 14:00-15:00

From Virtualization to the Cloud and Beyond
Martin Kuppinger, KuppingerCole • Craig Burton, KuppingerCole

Many companies have started virtualization quite a while ago. Nevertheless, they still frequently are in the first wave of virtualization, focusing on Windows servers and their virtualization. The second wave with virtualizing business-critical applications is still at the beginning in many data centers. These systems often have a continuously high workload, so the benefit of reducing the number of servers is somewhat limited. And they are business-critical, so touching them is something...

Security for Virtualized Environments, Privileged Users and PCI Compliance
Guy Balzam, CA Technologies • Stephan Bohnengel, VMware • Giovanni Ciminari, Telecom Italia

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is one of the most detailed compliance requirements published to date. A new version was released in October of 2010 along with supplemental guidance for virtual environments. In this session leading access control and endpoint security vendors will provide their insight on emerging compliance solutions and strategies for virtualization and PCI compliance. The session will also address PCI DSS requirements with an emphasis on their...

What Federation is About – in Theory and in Practice

Date: Thursday, April 19, 2012 Time: 15:00-16:00

What Federation is About – in Theory and in Practice
Dave Kearns, KuppingerCole

Synchronization of Identities and their distribution to many different identity stores is a common approach in IAM. However, Federation is gaining momentum massively – and that will further increase with the growth in Cloud Computing. However, even there you’ll find synchronization approaches, like the ones supported by the upcoming SCIM standard. Finding the balance between Federation and Synchronization is an art of itself. In this session, you’ll learn how to deal with...

Federation or Synchronization – the Future of the Cloud
Darran Rolls, KuppingerCole / Cloud 10 • Travis Spencer, Curity

In this panel industry experts will discuss the evolution in the cloud. For quite a while, SAML was the de-facto standard. Right now, other lightweight approaches (with somewhat different features) like OAuth are gaining momentum as well as SCIM, which supports the proprietary APIs of cloud services. What is the future? Will some approach win or will they co-exist? What fits really to the needs of the customer? Or do we need fundamentally different approaches?

Exchanging Metadata through Different Federations on a Global Scale
Nicole Harris, JISC Advance

One of the most successful advancements in IT within the education and research sector in recent years has been the emergence of identity federations. There are now over 27 identity federations worldwide, operating a very successful standards-based solution for access and identity transactions. The REFEDs group, coordinated by TERENA, is a working group representing all of these federations. REFEDs is actively developing new tools and concepts to improve and enhance the work of identity...

Database Firewalls: Advancing Security for Enterprise Data

Date: Thursday, April 19, 2012 Time: 16:30-17:30

Database Firewalls: Advancing Security for Enterprise Data
Martin Kuppinger, KuppingerCole • Sebastian Rohr, GmbH • Dr. Steve Moyle, Oracle

Millions of organizations worldwide have been breached using SQL injection attacks. Network firewalls protect networks, however, they fail to protect the target of these attacks: data. Two thirds of critical data in organizations resides in databases, and hence the need for protecting databases. In this session, we will look into the will describe this new product category, typical capabilities, how they work with other firewalls, and successes in protecting data and addressing...
