Novell VP to Present at Cloud Expo April 19-21 in New York City

Dipto Chakravarty to discuss what organizations need to know about cloud security

Novell Session at Cloud Expo

Many people believe you can take traditional identity and security practices, throw them in a cloud environment, and expect everything to work just fine. Not so! Businesses taking advantage of cloud computing should utilize cloud security approaches that support sharing of roles, policies, and workflows, rather than merely providing single sign-on.

In a cloud environment, workloads (combinations of applications, middleware, and operating systems) can be easily shifted from one locale to another to optimize performance as needed. With these rapid shifts, it's critical to maintain proper regulatory and security standards. For cloud computing to flourish in the enterprise environment, businesses need assurances that they'll still be able to securely manage their people and workloads, regardless of location.

In his session at the 5th International Cloud Expo, Dipto Chakravarty, Vice President of Worldwide Engineering for Novell's Identity and Security business unit, will discuss the necessary security measures that should be taken to ensure that your data is secure in the cloud. In addition, you will discover how one particular method, annexing, can be employed to help support your regulatory compliance efforts.
