Aveksa Joins Cloud Risk Management Alliance

Aveksa : 30 August, 2010  (Company News)
Identity management specialist joins the OASIS Identity In the Cloud Technical Committee, committing to improving access management security to Cloud Computing
Aveksa has announced its membership to the OASIS Identity in the Cloud Technical Committee (OASIS IDCloud TC). The recently formed Technical Committee identifies gaps in existing identity management standards and investigates the need for profiles to achieve interoperability within current standards. As a committee member, Aveksa will perform risk and threat analyses on collected use cases and produce guidelines for mitigating vulnerabilities.

"IDCloud's goal is to foster ongoing industry collaboration and progress around identity for the cloud," said Laurent Liscia, Executive Director of OASIS. "Through the collaborative efforts of access governance solutions providers like Aveksa and other members, OASIS is helping maintain security and privacy in cloud computing."

The OASIS IDCloud TC works to address the serious security challenges posed by identity management in cloud computing. The Committee collects and harmonizes definitions, terminologies and vocabulary of cloud computing, and develops profiles of open standards for identity deployment, provisioning and management. The TC collects use cases to help identify gaps in current identity management standards and investigate the need for profiles for achieving interoperability within current standards, with a preference for widely interoperable and modular methods.

"Enterprises recognize the compelling cost and efficiency gains delivered by cloud-based applications and services, but they are also now struggling with significant new access risk and compliance management challenges," said Jim Ducharme, vice president of engineering at Aveksa. "We look forward to working with the IDCloud's membership to further industry-wide standards for identity and access management that will help organizations securely embrace the benefits of cloud computing."

Participation in the IDCloud TC is open to all interested parties, including enterprises that provide or use identity management in a Cloud Computing infrastructure. Archives of the Committee's work are accessible to both members and non-members, and OASIS will invite public review and comment.
