With the mass migration of data and workloads to cloud, IT departments are struggling to give their executive team the guarantee that their company will remain 100 percent secure. Adam Neale, COO of EB2BCOM assures companies that they can enjoy the financial benefits and efficiency of migrating to cloud services without jeopardising the security of their environment. The cloud can be just as secure, if not more so than a traditional data centre.
EB2BCOM has been speaking to numerous Australian companies about cloud security, and are implementing game-changing cloud security solution Dome9 SecOps. Having spoken to over a hundred Australian companies in the last few months, the need to secure server instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and similar cloud platforms is undeniable. We’ve been blown away by the interest in a solution like Dome9 and there has been a high proportion of companies who have expressed their need and interest in this solution.
Organisations are being pushed by the need to access the financial benefits of cloud services in order to stay competitive, however some CEOs and Managing Directors are very hesitant to expose their companies to risk and a string of high-profile security breaches in recent years has proven a key consideration preventing businesses from benefiting from cloud services. For those companies who are migrating, the speed and financial pressure to quickly migrate to cloud has meant that companies often don’t get the chance to make sure that the right security profiles are in place.
Here are EB2BCOM’s tips on what you need to look out for when securing the cloud and how to migrate your workloads safely.
