Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in third-party data centres. Organizations use the Cloud in a variety of different service models (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS) and deployment models (Private, Public, Hybrid, and Community). There are a number of security concerns associated with cloud computing. These issues fall into two broad categories: security issues faced by cloud providers (organizations providing software-, platform-, or infrastructure-as-a-service via the cloud) and security issues faced by their customers (companies or organizations who host applications or store data on the cloud). The responsibility is shared, however. The provider must ensure that their infrastructure is secure and that their clients’ data and applications are protected, while the user must take measures to fortify their application and use strong passwords and authentication measures.

For consumers and businesses alike, cloud computing offers cost-effective, easy-to-use applications and services, but you need to know your personal information and files are secure. You need to understand the opportunities of cloud computing, as well as the risks, to make the move that’s right for you and your business.

Virtual servers are already outpacing physical ones, and Gartner predicts that in a few years 71% of server workloads will be virtualized. Finding the right security strategy can help you take advantage of the amazing potential virtualization and cloud computing offer your company including:

  • Lower capital and operational costs – consolidating the number of servers used and turning on VMs only as the business demands it.
  • Increased business agility – offering new services quickly and easily.
  • Instant scalability – turning on and off VMs as required.
  • Anywhere, anytime access – offering business services to your users who are in the office, at home or on a mobile device.

Ideally, a solution would be integrated with the administration of leading virtualization suppliers and cloud providers so that appropriate security would be automatically applied across all your platforms – physical, virtual and cloud.

As you take advantage of the operational and economic benefits of virtualization and the cloud, it’s critical to secure your virtualized data centres, cloud deployments, and hybrid environments effectively. If you neglect any aspect of security, you leave gaps that open the door to web threats and serious data breaches. And, to meet data privacy and compliance regulations, you will need to demonstrate that you have the appropriate security, regardless of your computing environment.
