Last year’s pandemic dramatically redefined the way we do business. Working remotely became the norm. Computer screens were transformed into conference rooms. And IoT devices needing fluid access to apps and data mushroomed exponentially. In response, corporate networks have shifted to cloud computing solutions whose main benefit – ubiquitous access – is also its main drawback when it comes to security. Here’s an executive summary of cloud security measures to keep on your enterprise’s radar.
From storing data in services like Dropbox, to accessing productivity tools through Microsoft Office 365 and deploying IT infrastructure in Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Azure, corporate IT departments have embraced cloud computing in a BIG way. And with good reason: Cloud services allow organizations to accelerate their business with more agile technology, often at a lower cost.
Companies are migrating mission critical IT workloads to the cloud to address the business demands of faster computer performance and scalable resources. Unlike traditional datacenter infrastructure that limits these capabilities, the public cloud model offers a flexibility to scale infrastructure resources on-demand.
