Few highlights from the report:
- Intel’s cloud access broker strategy, predicated on the convergence of authentication and federation with API governance, as well as roadmap integration of McAfee security functionality, makes for a compelling vision.
- Intel is looking to make a splash by providing bundled pricing for application connectors, federated single sign-on (SSO) and authentication.
- As we outlined some three years ago, by introducing a new network topology, cloud computing establishes the need for a new network device that we refer to as a cloud access gateway. As the API revolution takes hold, security and access management for the cloud is a stepping stone to solidifying Intel’s ambitions to addressing the opportunity.
