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.
Cloud Expo is the world's leading Cloud-focused event since 2007, and is held five times a year, in New York City, Silicon Valley, Prague, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
The 5th International Cloud Expo is co-located with the 8th International Virtualization Conference & Expo and will be taking place on April 19-21, 2010, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City with more than 5,000 delegates and over 100 sponsors and exhibitors participating in the conference.

All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the 5th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network this April in New York.
Over 200 corporate sponsors and 10,000 industry professionals became part of Cloud Expo since its inception, more than all other Cloud-related events put together worldwide.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and CEO of SYS-CON Events. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will participate in the Cloud Expo."
