Managing Security Risk in the Cloud
Developing an application in the public cloud has become so easy that IT departments and business units have started adopting this technology for cost and flexibility. But for many enterprises, security risks severely limit their ability to take advantage of the public cloud.
Consider a scenario where a marketing manager needs to quickly create a consumer loyalty application in response to competition. To accelerate time to market, the business might create an application on the public cloud without fully understanding the security requirements and risks. Novice deployments like these are neither compliant with corporate security policies nor adequately monitored throughout the lifecycle of the application. These two key factors increase security risk and may negate the business benefit of creating the new application. To solve this dilemma, enterprises need to make security compliance as simple as provisioning assets on the cloud.

Raxak Protect and HP CSA Eliminate Novice User Security Risk

IT organizations have already trained their business units to request IT services through a service catalog. Integrating Raxak Protect security profiles with the HP CSA IT service catalog enables both novice and expert users to build applications with automated security compliance.
As soon as the cloud-computing asset is provisioned, HP CSA calls the Raxak Protect API (see Figure 2) to enforce the corporate compliance profile. This enforcement continues through the lifecycle of the asset. The compliance logs and reports are stored in an audit-ready form, and seamlessly integrated with the HP CSA interface.
