Smooth Transition to a Secure Cloud
The democratization of the Internet has created the ideal environment for migration to the cloud and the advantages (availability, agility and scalability) that come along with it to increase productivity. However, with its infrastructures and outsourced software, the cloud shakes up the long-established methods of protecting information in a corporation.
Conventionally, peripheral security devices are placed on the perimeter of local networks. The problem is, the cloud has changed the perimeter of the corporate network. The fortified bastion built yesterday no longer suits the way applications and data are now dispersed.
To stay in control of an information system that has become both internal and external, the right solutions need to be chosen. This white paper provides a simple approach and effective measures for improving the level of security on information systems making that transition to the cloud.
