This is one of the critical areas of 2012.
An absolute must in the IT world is to control access privileges to areas of the network that are key to running a business. Such as data, applications, operating systems… Organizations may use a mix of solutions to minimize any kind of access risk. When it is hard to keep up with the mixed bag, centralized access management might be a better option.
Role based access anyday is a more effective way to keep a check on things, easier to apply an update to a group and can be done dynamically. It is also more flexible. Access management is as critical when maintaining security in the cloud. Securing access in the cloud is not unlike the security measures used for things hosted internally.
With all these in mind, corporations are eager to invest in solutions that offer better access management all around for servers and systems, be it in the cloud or at your company.
