Leveraging Novell’s Identity and Security Management technologies and Atos Origin’s Identity, Security and Risk Management offerings and cloud capabilities, the companies said that they will set a direction to deliver security and compliance as a service which can be applied to both cloud infrastructure services and traditional enterprise IT environments.
Under the expanded partnership, Atos Origin will use Novell’s identity and security products to provide quality in the information security and compliance service space.
Markus Krauss, VP of Novell EMEA, said: “In this rapidly changing economic climate, IT organisations need flexible solutions to gain a competitive advantage while also meeting identity security challenges. This is the basis of our approach to intelligent workload management.
