Today, cloud access security requires more than a simplistic secure VPN tunnel or single sign on from tightly controlled corporate applications. Users are demanding access to the cloud from a wider range of clients and directly on the cloud platform itself. From a compliance standpoint it is a growing nightmare involving orphaned accounts, infected clients, and un-auditable silos of user activity data left outside enterprise control. In this session, Intel showcases key technologies that are being used in the market today to build a trusted client to cloud connection. On the client side, Intel will present ‘Identity Protection Technology’ that will deliver strong second factor authentication using OTP one time password technology directly from the PC chip. To secure data in flight and access to the cloud, Intel expressway solutions enable federated single sign-on and web services security. On the server side, TXT trusted execution technology enables the setting up of trusted compute pools and establishing hardware root of trust between data centers. Attend this session to learn more about Intel’s 2015 vision for how to build a federated, automated, and client aware cloud.
