According to RightScale’s 2015 State of the Cloud Report, security continues to be the number one cloud challenge for IT professionals.
But why is Cloud security so different than traditional data security? Fred Hazan, an OpenSky Practice Director, has published a blog, “What Makes Cloud Security Different from Traditional Infrastructure Security ?“, to explore this very question.
As Cloud services take the reins from on-premise hardware and software, the importance of strong cybersecurity strategies for Cloud-based solutions becomes apparent. Unlike locking down a private network with firewalls and monitoring tools, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to Cloud security, as the number of use cases for the Cloud makes standards almost impossible.
You can read Fred’s blog to find out more. Stay tuned because OpenSky will be publishing a series of blogs that will explore the unique requirements of cloud use cases and address how a business can meet security demands.
