(The Hosting News) – A cloud-based environment offers a convenient and cost-effective platform for extending services to employees, customers and partners. However, it also increases the risk of data security breaches and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks—unless appropriate authentication and authorization policies and processes are implemented within the platform-as-a-service (PaaS).
WSO2 will provide IT professionals with best practices for addressing these challenges in a webinar entitled, “Securing Your Cloud Application Using StratosLive.” The one-hour technical webinar is being held twice on Wednesday, November 23: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST for the Americas and 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Securing Cloud Applications Using StratosLive
The webinar will explore how IT architects and developers can leverage the security capabilities offered by an underlying PaaS, and examine how they are compatible with other available services, such as user management and throttling. Using the WSO2 StratosLive PaaS as an example, the session also will examine available security technologies and how they can be used to effectively secure applications in the cloud. Additionally, the session will briefly cover alternative approaches to managing cloud application security, along with the associated risks.
The session will be presented by two SOA technology experts, who are committers with the Apache Software Foundation. Prabath Siriwardena is WSO2 architect and senior manager of the WSO2 Carbon platform and security; he also is a Project Management Committee member of Apache Axis2. Thilina Mahesh Buddhika is WSO2 associate technical lead and product manager of the WSO2 Identity Server; through his work on two Google Summer of Code projects, he contributed to the Apache Geronimo application server and Apache Rampart.
