Worried About Cloud Security?

If you are considering adopting cloud services into your enterprise—managing who has access to what and securely protecting identity information are major concerns. Novell IT Consulting and its partners can help you implement the necessary strategies both inside and outside your firewall to resolve security and access concerns to cloud-based services.

Adopting Cloud Services Confidently

The promise of reducing costs by paying for computing resources, software, and services as needed may be enticing. However, you may also be reluctant to utilize such cloud services because of security concerns. However, Novell IT Consulting and its partners can help you address these concerns so you can confidently enjoy the benefits of cloud computing while still maintaining a secure enterprise.

Cloud Security Begins Inside Your Firewall

The heart of any enterprise cloud security strategy starts with your identity management solution. Without an identity management solution specifically designed to include the cloud—you may be at risk. Novell Identity Manager 4, the next-generation identity management solution from Novell, can help.

With the Novell Identity Manager 4 family of products, you can enforce enterprise compliant processes with not only internal applications on physical hardware, but virtually-hosted and remote SaaS applications too. Imagine being able to control who has access to what applications—no matter where those applications are running.

Novell Identity Manager 4 provides incredibly scalable and highly available user provisioning and deprovisioning not only for physical and virtual resources inside your firewall, but cloud-deployed resources outside your firewall as well. The Novell Identity Manager 4 family of products can report the user information on any accessed resource, even if that resource is in the cloud.

Effective Cloud Security Involves your Service Providers

Enjoying a cloud-ready identity management solution is only one-half of any cloud security strategy. The providers of cloud services should also have your security in mind. Luckily, Novell has a solution that is easily implemented by cloud service providers that allows you to control your own identity information inside your firewall while still guaranteeing secure access to their cloud services.

Novell Cloud Security Service gives cloud service vendors the power to manage user access, secure data storage, and ensure regulatory and corporate compliance—all without storing sensitive identity information on their end. With a few simple plug-ins to your existing identity management infrastructure—you can enjoy simple, secure cloud interactions with any cloud service provider using Novell Cloud Security Service.
