Mikko Peltola

This presentation looks into the concept of layered security and the challenges an IT environment transforming from on-prem to cloud paradigm faces in maintaining it. Secondly, we’ll look at the disappearance of clear barriers between a secured company network and external unsecure internet. Collaboration between companies,Mikko Peltola, VP Bus Dev F-Securepartners and ecosystems and the value of information moving freely but safely between the different actors has become a critical success factor. Partner portals, customer communities, cloud platforms and crowdsourcing have brought unquestionable benefits but have also expanded the attack surface. From the problem setting we’ll move onto how F-Secure approaches the security and keeps the organizations protected. Finally we’ll look into a case study: How to protect a partner portal running on a Salesforce Community Cloud with F-Secure Cloud Protection for Salesforce solution. The case study has all the elements of complexity identified above: A cloud based solution providing access to registered partners, crowdsourced contributors and company employees paired with the need to keep all of them secure and protected. The learnings are applicable to a number of business processes from helpdesk agents to CRM and from claim/application processes to vendor/supplier network management.
