Security Annexing Eases Cloud Computing Worries

Novell's Dipto Chakravarty to Present at Cloud Expo in New York

Security Track 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!," writes Dipto Chakravarty, VP of Worldwide Engineering for Novell's Identity and Security business unit, and a presenter at Cloud Expo in New York. "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," he writes. "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 this session, Chakravarty says attendees will learn about the necessary security measures that should be taken to ensure that 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.

In addition to being a 20-year software industry veteran, Chakravarty is the author of two best-selling computer books from McGraw-Hill that have been translated in five languages, has published over 45 technical papers in refereed journals, and holds several patents.
