Can You Answer These 5 Cloud Questions?
April 4, 2014 | By Axway Blog Team
The public cloud is your cloud, and it can be well secured for your business. But you’ve got to be careful. Can you answer questions like these?
- Is adopting an architecture in which data is “on tap” from APIs the key to minimizing persistence of confidential data on mobile devices?
- What’s better: replicating identity and policy data, or extending an existing enterprise IAM platform to cover cloud-based applications, services, and on-premise systems?
- Is it prudent to use a solution to manage API keys and broker the authentication of on-premise applications to SaaS, or simply distribute keys that can be hard-coded into applications?
- Should applications developed in the cloud have their own identity silos in the cloud, or should they be able to access identity, policy, and entitlement data from on-premise identity management systems?
- If APIs differ in terms of usage patterns and the type of traffic they receive, should they be protected by different policies?
