Organizations have widely moved to a cloud environment across most industries. Cloud services provide organizations the opportunity to bring scalable, flexible access, to internal users and external customers across locations and technologies that suit their workstyle and business needs. Cloud computing has become the standard, and most companies continue to work to identify more opportunity to take advantage of the benefits of the technologies. At the same time, many organizations have struggled to manage the security of their entire cloud environment.
Cloud computing and associated operations provide organizations with the ability to improve their control over the organization’s data. A good cloud infrastructure can increase basic information security, as well improve data resiliency and backups. Most cloud providers include reliability and uptime guarantees. Cloud enablement typically means the cloud provider is in control of the cloud computing environment. Most cloud providers have become very good at implementation and support of their standard implementations. This can improve the security of the supported computing devices. Some of this can evolve, depending on what deployment model is in place – public, private, or hybrid.
