Web Application Security within Cloud Computing, SaaS, and Virtualized Environments -- Chris Richter of Savvis, an Imperva Partner, shares his Wealth of Experience


On this episode of the Imperva Security Podcast Chris Richter from Savvis talks about cloud computing, SaaS, virtualization, and the need for Web Application Firewalls. He shares some stories from the trenches, and talks about the trend in modern business to become more focused on core capabilities and less on infrastructure, thus getting back to managing the top and bottom lines.

Chris is VP and general manager of security products and services at Savvis, a leading network, hosting and security services provider, where he is responsible for the managed-security line of business, strategy and product portfolio. Chris has assisted many enterprises in adapting their premise-based infrastructure risk management programs and security controls to Savvis' outsourced virtual-ized and shared-infrastructure services. He brings an IT service provider's view of control requirements for virtualized- and cloud-based infra-structures. Chris is a member of ISSA and ISACA, and for more than 20 years has held various security and IT services manage-ment and consulting positions at companies such as Digital Equipment Corporation, Compaq Global Services, 3Com, Cable & Wireless and Sterling Software. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), and has served as a technical advisor and board member of several Silicon Valley-based IT product and services companies.
