Protecting Data in the Cloud: A Requirement, not an Option
As businesses seriously consider migrating to the cloud, one of the most significant concerns is data security. Securing data-at-rest is fairly simple when it is located within the four walls of a private data center. But once it is moved to the cloud, it becomes vulnerable to a number of new threats ranging from stolen administrator credentials to new hacking techniques. In addition, new legislation – such as the US Patriot Act – is making it possible for competitors and governments to access data from cloud providers without the consent of the owner.
For many organizations, keeping data private and secure has also become a compliance requirement. Standards including HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI DSS, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and EU Data Protection directives all require that organizations protect their data-at-rest and provide defenses against threats. Cloud providers offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offer a “shared responsibility” model for customer applications and data, so companies that are migrating to the cloud must find a solution.
