Keynote: Validating Cloud Computing Security
by Ankur Chadda, Manager, Datacenter Security at Spirent
Security no longer needs to be the stumbling block for deploying cloud computing services. Information protection is the number issue of IT departments migrating to a cloud environment. Losing control of how security is enabled has delayed many companies from fully taking advantage of the “infinite scalability” promise of cloud computing.
But how do you know that information is protected and what the cost of performance really is? How does one product the data center from external attacks? And more importantly, how does one tackle internal attacks?
Fortunately there is a way to find out.
Attend this webinar where Spirent will share key findings from a recent, first of its kind,; cloud security test designed to show that network operators can now secure cloud and virtualized environments with confidence. Learn how a leading Network Equipment Manufacturer physical and virtual data center solution was put to the test.

CYBER SECURITY FOR VIRTUAL AND CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS
Cyber threats are one of the greatest risks faced by IT organizations today. While government organizations are increasingly involved in cyber security, individual IT organizations still have responsibility for protecting their own assets. Without action, IT organizations of all types risk becoming victims of expensive and damaging cyber attacks. Cyber security is not just a technical problem, it is a business problem. This paper discusses cyber security from a business perspective and overcoming the challenges faced. It provides readers a high level overview and also a brief introduction into a test methodology approach that can be taken. Click Here to Learn More
OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGES OF TODAY’S CLOUD REALITY
Cloud computing is one of the most hyped approaches to IT today. While it has great potential for cost savings, efficiency and agility, it also introduces some new challenges. Market adoption models like “Crossing the Chasm” and the “Hype Cycle” indicate cloud computing is gaining momentum and seeing increased adoption. They also suggest that more organizations will encounter challenges—and even failures—in deploying cloud computing environments. The reality of Cloud today is a combination of high potential and hidden surprises. This paper summarizes the various types of “Services” offered and questions that IT professionals should be asking. It also introduces a test methodology approach around performance, availability, security and scalability. Click Here to Learn More
