The Cloud Security Firewall
Cloud is certainly one of the most impactful trends of modern IT but from a security standpoint, it poses significant challenges. A new approach to cloud security is required to give businesses the confidence to rapidly shift enterprise resources to public and private clouds. Cloud security requires the creation of a new security control point, a "cloud firewall" for IT to apply consistent identity and information security across all cloud services. This cloud security gateway will provide three core security layers. The cloud access control layer leverages an enterprise existing identity infrastructure for authentication to enable Single Sign On (SSO) while enabling authorization and federation services. The information security layer builds on DLP and encryption technologies to automatically detect, block and encrypt confidential information before it is stored in the cloud. Moreover, by virtue of being in line with all cloud traffic, the security gateway aggregates all cloud-related security events, to provide the foundation for a comprehensive cloud audit solution. In this talk, we will provide a thorough technical overview and demonstration of Symantec’s new security approach for the cloud.
