Cloud computing is changing many important principles of how enterprise IT organizations are managed and run. While no one is throwing away their firewalls, there is a reprioritization of where efforts should be focused. The virtualization and decentralization trends introduced by cloud computing (at both the public and private levels) have elevated the role of Identity Management and Role Based Access Control. But is there anything else that we should be keeping track of? In this edition of 1on1 with BizTechReports, Reza Malekzadeh, VP of Marketing for Nimbula helps us explore the concept of Workload Based Access Control as a key element to manage and control in today’s cloud environment.
