WHAT: The adoption of cloud computing has exploded since its introduction some five years ago, but significant barriers still remain. Many organizations struggle with security and privacy concerns; others lack understanding and direction as to what is actually required to ensure identity and access management across enterprise, cloud and mobile applications. API management, the network security stack, and data security also pose challenges for short-staffed IT departments. This webinar, featuring Forrester Research’s Chenxi Wang and Symplified’s Darren Platt, will focus on the state of cloud security in 2012. Attendees will learn:
- How far cloud security has come in the last five years – and the challenges that are still hindering cloud adoption
- The gaps that still exist in cloud providers’ existing security infrastructures
- Current solutions that facilitate cloud adoption while increasing security
- Developments and innovations, including the role of identity and access management across cloud, web, and mobile apps
