I was speaking recently to Steve Coplan, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Security Practice at the 451 Group. I always enjoy talking to Steve. He has a deep understanding of technology and our business, but it’s his training as a journalist that I think sets him apart from the other analysts. His work comes through as erudite but accessible, and it is always very well written.
In our discussion, Steve was careful to make a clear distinction between between security in the cloud and security for the cloud. This intrigued me, because I think the differences are too often lost when people talk about cloud in the abstract. Steve’s point became the topic of a webinar that he and I will deliver together this Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 12:00pm EDT/9:00am PDT/4:00pm GMT.
I hope you can join us to learn why this distinction is so important. You can sign up for this webinar at the Layer 7 Technologies web site.
