Get Ready for Cloud Migration

2 MINUTE READ
Cloud systems are finally so much less costly and complex than on-premise systems that previously skeptical companies are starting to come around to their benefits. That may be why two-thirds of respondents to a recent survey reported that they’ve adopted cloud-based Office 365. However, among those who have opted not to move to the cloud-based productivity suite, the primary reasons…

Cloud Security is Business-Ready. Are You?

If you’ve been avoiding moving critical applications and data to the cloud out of concerns about security, it’s time to reconsider. The question isn’t whether leading cloud providers’ resources are secure. They are. They’ve invested heavily to make sure of it, and they’ve built an ecosystem of tech partners with solutions that are equally secure. The real question is whether…

Is Data Really Private in the Public Cloud?

One of the more interesting books that’s crossed our radar lately is Future Crimes, in which futurist and security expert Marc Goodman looks at the opportunities and dangers of a highly connected, data-driven world. Since our own business depends on helping our clients manage their critical data effectively and securely, you can imagine how eagerly we read this interview with…

Low Visibility is a Cloud Security Hazard

Look at these statistics: • 59% of respondents reported security incidents related to unwanted external sharing (for example, sharing a Google…

The First Step to Cloud Data Privacy

If the cloud’s efficiency and economies of scale appeal to you, but security concerns you, do your due diligence. Review the terms and conditions offered by every vendor for every service you’re considering. Read the fine print. Then dig deeper with detailed questions about security, privacy, and data management, as recommended by Intel’s CTO for cloud and security as a…

Don’t Let Your Cybersecurity Blow Away in the Cloud

Whether you use only one application in the cloud or you’ve shifted your entire infrastructure there, your security needs to cover your entire infrastructure — public, private, cloud-based, and traditional. But as companies mix on-site data centers with vendor-provided cloud services, they often fail to adjust their data cybersecurity accordingly. So says a new study from the SANS Institute, which…

How to Harness the Power of Cloud Services for Cybersecurity Conscious Organizations

According to a recent study by Verizon, from survey to survey, the trend is clear – the cloud is now mainstream. Verizon research found that 65% of enterprises surveyed are using cloud services, and they are increasingly trusting more complex and mission-critical workloads to it. They also found that 72% expect to put more than half their workloads in the…

Warning: Your Employees Have Your Sensitive Data in Their Cloud

Our last blog post alerted you to the dangers of combining employees who take technology for granted with a weak (or non-existent) BYOD policy. However, that’s not the only risk a tech-savvy workforce can pose to your data. A survey by cybersecurity vendor CipherCloud found that a jaw dropping 86 percent of cloud applications being used in the enterprise, from…
