As part of our major release of Creative Cloud on June 16th, 2015, we released an updated version of our security white paper for Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise. In addition, we released a new white paper about the security architecture and capabilities of Adobe Business Catalyst. This updated information is useful in helping I.T. security professionals evaluate the security posture of our Creative Cloud offerings.

Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise gives large organizations access to Adobe’s creative desktop and mobile applications and services, workgroup collaboration, and license management tools. It also includes flexible deployment, identity management options including Federated ID with Single Sign-On, annual license true-ups, and enterprise-level customer support — and it works with other Adobe enterprise offerings. This version of the white paper includes updated information about:

  • Various enterprise storage options now available, including updated information about geolocation of shared storage data
  • Enhancements to entitlement and identity management services
  • Enhancements to password management
  • Security architecture of shared services and the new enterprise managed services

Adobe Business Catalyst is an all-in-one business website and online marketing solution providing an integrated platform for Content Management (CMS), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), E‐Mail Marketing, ECommerce, and Analytics. The security white paper now available includes information about:

  • Overall architecture of Business Catalyst
  • PCI/DSS compliance information
  • Authentication and services
  • Ongoing risk management for the Business Catalyst application and infrastructure

Straight Talk about PDF & Digital Signatures – ISSE 2009

Jim King, PDF Architect, senior principal scientist at Adobe and one of the key drivers behind the PDF format and its adoption and continuing development by ISO as a standard (ISO 32000), recently delivered a keynote presentation to the ISSE (Information Security Solutions Europe) 2009 Conference in The Hague, Netherlands.  He discussed the evolution of the PDF format and standard, and spent most of his talk introducing the new PAdES signature standard and what it encompasses.

During that conference, Jim sat down with Roger Dean, executive director of eema UK, for a conversation about PDF, the need for digital signatures, challenges of communicating the benefits of digital signatures, and finally a description of the PAdES standard.  This interview is now available below (and here)…enjoy!
