RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"Federated identity standards for basic single sign-on have been in use for many years forming a key pillar of enterprise class security between partners. With the shift to cloud and the emergence of industry "Trust Frameworks" these standards are being leveraged in new ways to facilitate multi-party collaborations that leverage third-party Identity Providers.

In addition, these standards are being layered with complementary security models such as strong authentication, mobile access, web service API management, and Identity as a Service."

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
