In Pictures: CSO's Identity Driven Access Management Round Table

It's the centenary of the commencement of World War One. Back then, there were borders to protect. The soldiers knew who they were fighting and there were very few incursions where one side crossed a border undetected. Today's battles are different.

Cloud security: how to protect your data

To use Cloud computing securely requires companies to know where their data is stored and who has access to it. Ironically, the reason Cloud is so popular is because organisations don't want to worry about these details. So can the issue be solved by adhering to standards? Increasing legislation? Maybe we need a global technical disaster to ‘sober up’ an industry drunk on the power of Moore's Law.

Dispelling Common Myths Surrounding UTM

The security solution gained traction with its all-in-one approach, combining several security tools into a single device.
