Another difficult task that involves a lot of new skills, processes, and controls. From a vendor perspective, Centrify, Ping Identity and RadiantLogic are poised to provide cloud-based identity services while CloudPassage, HyTrust, and Sky High Networks promise cloud security management and oversight. Personally, I'd like to see more discussions about open security standards to make this less cubersome.
Addressing these four challenges won't be easy and every CISO I know is looking for help. As such, every security vendor should be prepared to discuss how their products and services address — and help overcome — each one.
