This week we have focused our attention on how to secure cloud deployments since Security continues to be the biggest deterrent in adoption of cloud technology by enterprises. In fact, in a recent OAUG user group survey, 62% of organizations reported concern over losing visibility and control over their data and overall cloud strategy due to proprietary technologies.
The key then is to:
- Identify the top security challenges with the cloud deployment and address those,
- Recognize that Security silos only exacerbate the problem and not address it,
- Standardize with an integrated security platform that is extensible enough to support your on-premise and cloud deployments and offers end-to-end auditing and reporting.
Whether you are an enterprise looking to push applications in the cloud, host cloud services or build using cloud services, an IRS approach will allow you to enforce security, manage regulatory compliance and at the same time, reduce operational costs.
