Protecting Sensitive Data when migrating to the Cloud
Moving IT provisioning to the cloud offers many benefits. At the same time, businesses fear moving to the Cloud for its apparent lack of security controls, which could expose digital assets and cause compliance and regulatory infractions.
Part of the problem lies in the inability to keep files encrypted as they move to and from the Cloud or are sent to customers and business partners via cloud-based services such as email. While device-based encryption and data loss prevention technologies keep files somewhat protected while they remain on premises or on devices, once those files move to the Cloud or are sent via email, the encryption is often removed.
This white paper from Stormshield examines the fears and the challenges that businesses face when moving their IT infrastructure and applications to the Cloud or when they allow employees to send sensitive files via cloud-based email.
