Will We Ever Get Close to 100% Security? – On Location at RSA Conference 2011

Taher Elgamal, CSO, Axway

“We kind of know where the vaccines are going to come from. The mistake that people in information security get into is the perfect solution, a hundred percent ‘something.’ And a hundred percent does not work.”

Is the Future Filled with Data Breaches? – On Location at RSA Conference 2011

Taher Elgamal, CSO, Axway

“We will see a lot of these in our lifetimes, is the reality of it… Most people do not know how to manage information or access to it.”

What About WikiLeaks? What About Stuxnet? – On Location at RSA Conference 2011

Taher Elgamal, CSO, Axway

“This industry started out thinking of information security and migrated into a lot of other things. If we actually go back to information security as it was supposed to be originally, we would not allow people who are not supposed to have access to anything (to get) access to it. And we would not allow people to post things out without having the right to do that as well.”

Policies Driven by the People Who Interact with You – On Location at RSA Conference 2011

Dave Bennett, CTO, Axway

“Authorization today is so much controlled by the enterprise. In the future it’s going to be controlled more and more by the user.”

The Network’s Becoming Intelligent – On Location at RSA Conference 2011

Dave Bennett, CTO, Axway

“I think it goes beyond that. I think we have to start looking at the whole fabric, the whole network, beyond just cloud. How cloud intertwines to your corporate enterprise, how it intertwines to the new social medias, to the ad hoc users.”

Integrating with Other Identity Repositories

John Thielens, Chief Architect, Cloud Services, Axway

“Everybody wants me to register. They want to own my credentials so they can have, I guess, some kind of information about me to spam me later, so that they can independently have some assurance over my identity so they can allow me to securely transact. We certainly see this on the enterprise side as well.”

The Infrastructure Does Not Understand the Data Itself

Taher Elgamal, CSO, Axway

“All companies today get to deal with information that somebody else owns, and that’s a very interesting thing. If I’m processing the information on behalf of someone, that¬† information can have a lot of confidential…things, can have a lot of privacy issues for individuals, and so on and so forth. It turns out that it’s really, really difficult to understand data as a piece of the infrastructure. You have to do a lot of work. Effectively, a lot of the data leakage protection products actually ended up doing that.¬† …if you try to fast forward several years from now, I think these technologies will end up being part of an audit, not part of the operational management of the network or the security of the network or the security of the applications or any of that. And I think that at some point the applications that manage data will end up taking a lot of the interesting technologies that you can use to understand what the data is about, understand what to do with the data, understand how to impose policies and enforce things and understand who’s allowed to do what with the data versus who’s not.”
