It is not every day that you get to hear from one of the great thought leaders on Security. At Sun we are lucky every day because we get to work with people like Whitfield Diffie all the time. Whitfield Diffie is Sun’s Chief Security Officer.
In this article on Computer World he gives insight into one of the future growth areas in security. He believes that outsourcing or your data managed by others is the biggest force of change in security over the next 5 to 20 years. Companies like SugarCRM, SalesForce.com, Amazon or Google provide global business with the ability to outsource business operations, IT functions all to more efficiently invest their resources to continue to innovate. However, the challenge for us all is to ensure that the appropriate level of security is applied to the data that we want to protect.
Sun takes security seriously and that is why we have one of the leading Identity solutions in the market, Identity Manager. Additionally, we offer a product called Sun Connection will allows companies to quickly and efficiently apply security updates to RedHat, SuSE and Solaris operating systems.
