Webinar Addresses Viability of Cloud-Based Security

Cloud based security is quickly becoming the new standard for forward-thinking enterprises, yet many still question its viability, affordability and risk reduction capabilities. A live online roundtable hosted by CloudAccess looks to challenge the myths as well as present strategies and identify the long-term advantages of security as a service.

The 45-minute interview format webinar, scheduled for February 28th at 11:30 PST will feature two leading voices in the cloud-based security industry: Karl Ma of retail giant BCBG and cloud security expert Kevin Nikkhoo. Reservations for the event can be made on the Cloud Access website: http://www.cloudaccess.com/register-our-webinar.

“For many forward thinking organizations cloud-based security is already framing the next generation in state-of-art IT asset protection. But just like any quantum advance in technology, many are still waiting for the early adopters to validate how this paradigm changes the playing field,” Nikkhoo said.

According to Nikkhoo, cloud-based security is the natural progression of migrating applications and services to more virtual capacities as a means reducing costs, mitigating threats and expanding resources.

“IT professionals are already comfortable with the concepts and practices of SaaS (software as a service), server farms and other virtual computing methods. Now there are safe and secure means to deliver enterprise-scaled security from the cloud for things like access management, password management, single sign on, log management, and security information and event management (SIEM). It’s no longer an issue of if, but of when.”

Cloud-based security, also known as security-as-a-service, promotes several best practice advantages over in-house, terrestrial counterparts.  In most cases, it improves the cost-effectiveness of deployment and maintenance,  efficiently reallocates resources to higher value tasks, speeds delivery and response times, and most important, offers the required robust functionality and rigid protection to meet industry and government compliance.

The webinar will compare many of those advantages and outline ways to leverage existing infrastructure investments.

“What I hope people get from this webinar is that cloud-based security is the future, and that future will be more affordable, easier-to-use, and most important, just as vigilant in protecting IT assets,” Nikkhoo added.

All registrants will also get a copy of the Executive Briefing “Just How Secure is Security Managed from the Cloud Security” by IT expert Laura Paoletti.
