Open cloud standards have the potential to change that. With interoperable standards, we could communicate across vendors about suspicious activity and what a suspect user is up to – an API driven approach to collect logs that providers can subscribe and feed information to. This is the kind of security innovation that open standards could make a reality, but simply isn’t feasible in proprietary cloud model.

There is more work to be done, but if we continue to embrace standards, the open cloud ecosystem builds out, innovation is enabled, and security improves as the benefits for user identity, authentication and security intelligence are realized.
