Art Coviello, executive chairman of RSA, used his welcoming keynote at the RSA Conference to unveil its Cloud Trust Authority.

The new product is designed to accelerate cloud adoption and facilitate secure and compliant relationships among organisations and cloud service providers.

According to Coviello, businesses will be able to manage relationships with cloud service providers via the RSA Cloud Trust Authority console.

Coviello said: “When organisations leverage cloud services, they operate under a promise of security and compliance, rather than proof. That must change to truly enable trust in the cloud. But the challenge isn't simply providing that visibility and control, but doing so across multiple providers.

“Because organisations will likely partner with multiple cloud providers, it would be useful to achieve control and visibility without having to implement multiple point‐to point integrations," he said.

The keynote marked Coviello's first appearance since he was appointed executive vice president of EMC, with Tom Heiser moving from the position of chief operating officer to president of RSA.
