If you are going to use cloud services to replace or enhance your existing IT infrastructure, it is important to manage who can access your data, and from where. Protecting your data is paramount, both in storage on your cloud providers’ servers, and in transit over the internet between your provider, and your network.
In addition, by using cloud services you are transferring responsibility and control to a cloud provider over information and systems which used to be under your direct control. You are handing over control of the operations management and losing influence over changes to the computing environment, but with it you are also transferring the responsibility and expense for maintaining those areas of your business infrastructure.
Moving services to the cloud can be of great benefit to your business, but as cloud computing is such a dynamic area at this time it is important to address all of the security concerns and ensure that your choice of provider, and implementation strategy is the right one for your business. We can help you do this with a robust Cloud Security strategy.
