CIO Perspectives: Safely Lifting and Shifting Enterprise IT to the Public Cloud
Public cloud is about more than cost reduction – it is about increasing business agility and providing nearly elastic capacity. It is also about innovation, a modern stack, and immediate upgrades. However, security concerns have prevented many of those entrusted with sensitive data from taking advantage of all that the public cloud offers. For them, the ability to directly control the protection of data as it flows in and out of the cloud is vital. In this paper, we examine an architecture for data security within the cloud. We discuss what is needed to protect data at all points – including the movement of data from legacy datacenters to the cloud.
