Joining technology leaders like IBM, Symantec, Rackspace, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin, Datastream Connexion has become a member of the Cloud Standards Customer Council.

Security is consistently highlighted as one of the top inhibitors to the adoption of cloud computing and an area of great interest to customers. The new CSCC security working group will focus on developing high priority use cases for cloud security that reflect the issues and pain points customers are experiencing in various cloud deployment models (private, public and hybrid). A wide range of security issues including identity management, authorization, auditing, availability, data protection and privacy will be considered.

We look forward to a strong working relationship with these organizations as we start to define best practices for the cloud.
