Although virtualization is a widely accepted technology, there are few books dedicated to virtualization and security. Filling this need, Securing Cloud and Mobility: A Practitioner's Guide explains how to secure the multifaceted layers of private and public cloud deployments as well as mobility infrastructures. With comprehensive coverage that includes network, server, and endpoint security, it provides a strategic view of the security implications of virtualization and cloud computing. The book begins by deconstructing the terminology of cloud computing. It explains how to establish a secure framework within the virtualized environment and breaks down the various deployment and service models for cloud computing. For private clouds, it discusses the issues of physical versus logical segmentation, securing orchestration, encryption services, threat intelligence, and identity management. For public clouds, it provides three frameworks for reviewing cloud services: cursory, in-depth, and outsourced. On the mobility side, the text discusses the three major mobile architectures: Apple IOS, Android, and Blackberry. Filled with real-world examples, it addresses the various mobile management approaches, secure mobile code development and standards, and the emerging threats to both cloud and mobility. Laying out decision-making frameworks to help you secure your virtual environment, the book includes coverage of physical and virtual segregation, orchestration security, threat intelligence, identity management, cloud security assessments, cloud encryption services, audit and compliance, certifications, and secure mobile architecture. It includes helpful implementation considerations, technical decision points, and process flows to supply you with practical guidance on how to navigate the undulating terrains of cloud and mobility.

This book offers a comprehensive guide to implementing SAP and HANA on private, public and hybrid clouds. Cloud computing has transformed the way organizations run their IT infrastructures: the shift from legacy monolithic mainframes and UNIX platforms to cloud based infrastructures offering ubiquitous access to critical information, elastic provisioning and drastic cost savings has made cloud an essential part of every organization’s business strategy. Cloud based services have evolved from simple file sharing, email and messaging utilities in the past, to the current situation, where their improved technical capabilities and SLAs make running mission-critical applications such as SAP possible. However, IT professionals must take due care when deploying SAP in a public, private or hybrid cloud environment. As a foundation for core business operations, SAP cloud deployments must satisfy stringent requirements concerning their performance, scale and security, while delivering measurable improvements in IT efficiency and cost savings. The 2nd edition of “SAP on the Cloud” continues the work of its successful predecessor released in 2013, providing updated guidance for deploying SAP in public, private and hybrid clouds. To do so, it discusses the technical requirements and considerations necessary for IT professionals to successfully implement SAP software in a cloud environment, including best-practice architectures for IaaS, PaaS and SaaS deployments. The section on SAP’s in-memory database HANA has been significantly extended to cover Suite on HANA (SoH) and the different incarnations of HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC) and Tailored Datacenter Integration (TDI). As cyber threats are a significant concern, it also explores appropriate security models for defending SAP cloud deployments against modern and sophisticated attacks. The reader will gain the insights needed to understand the respective benefits and drawbacks of various deployment models and how SAP on the cloud can be used to deliver IT efficiency and cost-savings in a secure and agile manner.
