Alan Shimel of Network World shares his insights: “It was interesting how cloud providers exhibited their security chops at RSA.”
Network World, March 7, 2013 – An interesting thing I saw at RSA this year was at the Alert Logic partner pavilion on the show floor. Alert Logic had five of their leading cloud/hosting provider partners exhibiting with them. The five were: Rackspace, SunGard Availability Services, Navisite, Hosting (formerly Hosting.com) and Datapipe. If I told you the five of these companies were at RSA, you would have probably assumed that they were in attendance seeking to learn more about security and new trends in security. You probably would not have thought that they were there as security providers themselves. However, that is exactly what they are and what they were there doing.
