3 Fundamentals for Secure Cloud Adoption


PANW-New-Logo-3

Organizations must concentrate on a prevention-focused security architecture for cloud deployment — designed to stop threats across all potential attack vectors.

The key questions to consider when adopting cloud services include:

1. Who’s really responsible for our data?
You. In public cloud environments, as the data owner, you’re responsible for your data — not the cloud service provider (CSP). And although the CSP will secure the underlying infrastructure, the safety of your applications and data is your responsibility. So you need a consistent security posture.

2. Who has access to our applications and data?
A role-based access policy can help mitigate the risk of data loss. Although the CSP will have authorisation messages in place, it’s important you decide who should have access and whether additional assurance is required.

3. What happens if there’s a security breach?
What kind of support will the CSP give if there’s a breach? It’s important to know this before launching a cloud strategy.

Understanding the risks, and the challenges is a vital first-step as your organization moves to make the most of the cloud. Get your copy of our new whitepaper with BT Security, “Securely Enabling Cloud Adoption” and start your next conversation.
