Cloud Security: Overcoming RoadblocksRick Bosworth of BMC Software Discusses the Fusion with DevSecOps
While infosec has always been an imperative, in a cloud environment, BMC Software's Rick Bosworth says it is especially critical since the liability does not rest with cloud service providers for secure resource configuration.
"It is absolutely not the responsibility of the cloud service provider to make sure that those resources are securely configured," states Bosworth, a director of marketing at BMC. "If you check the T&Cs of your contract with your cloud service provider, under the shared responsibility model it is incumbent on the enterprise themselves, the users themselves to make sure those IaaS and PaaS services are securely configured."
In this interview (see audio link below photo), Bosworth discusses:
- Cloud security concerns that today's enterprises may be overlooking;
- How to simplify and automate cloud security so that developers become a force-multiplier for InfoSec;
- How BMC is helping to ensure its customers have a more agile and secure cloud experience.
Bosworth is a director of solutions marketing at BMC Software, developing market, content, and growth strategies for security solutions within Digital Service Operations Management (DSOM). He has more than 15 years of global product marketing and product management experience, defining and implementing go-to market (GTM) plans for high tech B2B solutions.
