In the IT world “The Cloud” has been touted as a game changer and it is. Cloud computing is simple in concept, and simplicity of operation, deployment and licensing are its most appealing assets. Businesses can work more efficiently becoming more agile, efficient and competitive.
Organizations migrating to the hybrid cloud model sometimes struggle due to concerns surrounding compliance, privacy and security. Hybrid clouds can be better secured through best practices applied on-premise and in other clouds.
Identity management is a concept that has plagued organizations since the beginning of the computer age and especially as computers became connected through networks and those networks were connected to other networks through the grand mesh of the Internet. As the computing paradigm morphs again, to a cloud-based model, identity takes on even greater importance.
Cloud storage is probably the purest example of the tension between convenience and security in modern computing.
