Taking the Right Approach to the Cloud to Impact the Business While Addressing Risks

Paul Trulove
Director of Product Management, SailPoint

Cloud Computing presents a huge opportunity for businesses to streamline their IT systems and cut costs. But Cloud Computing also presents as many challenges as it addresses, particularly around security and governance. Compounding that is the fact that in many companies, business units purchase or deploy cloud-based applications on their own without engaging the CIO or IT staff. From the business perspective, managers think they're simply removing the middleman from the process. In reality, they could be providing unregulated access to important data without understanding the larger security implications for the company. Many cloud applications do contain sensitive data and serve critical business functions, and should be managed the same as other enterprise applications. Organizations must ensure they centralized visibility and control over cloud and non-cloud applications and data. In this session, SailPoint will discuss how today's organizations can address security and compliance issues in order to reap the benefits of Cloud Computing.
