Businesses that want to advance cloud security at scale need to invest in both the people and the technology that will reduce risks.
When evaluating cloud providers, it's important to understand who is responsible for cloud security. Since the lines are often blurred, encryption is imperative to keep your data from prying eyes.
Regardless of what cloud service model you adopt, it's important to consider security implications related to application development, data and contract management, and IT asset governance.
Moving identity management processes to cloud IAM services introduces benefits such as cost-efficiency, flexibility, faster deployments and simplified operations.
Failure to consider security when developing a hybrid cloud can lead to unanticipated problems that don't exist in typical technology infrastructure.
In the rush to digital transformation, treating cloud security services as an afterthought to hybrid cloud adoption is an increasingly risky mistake.
Financial services firms face three challenges when adopting the hybrid cloud: continuous compliance with geography-specific regulations, inconsistent controls and lack of a common security framework.
Enterprises Using IaaS or PaaS Have 14 Misconfigured Instances on Average, Cloud Adoption Study Finds
A cloud adoption report found that companies that deploy infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) or platform-as-a-service (PaaS) have an average of 14 misconfigured instances running at a given time.
When it comes to cloud data protection, it's not just credit card numbers that need protecting, it's also the data that represents a majority of your company's value: your intellectual property.
By investing in IDaaS capabilities, organizations can free themselves from the burdens of infrastructure support and specialized staffing required to operate common on-premises solutions.
