Making Cloud Computing Secure for the Enterprise

Apr 13, 2010

Download Many companies are eager to take advantage of cloud computing, but concerns about possible security breaches and loss of data hold them back. Trust�or lack of it�is one of the primary reasons for the hesitancy of enterprises to put their data and applications in a multi-tenant public cloud. Security issues associated with third-party cloud environments continue to prevent organizations from benefiting from the cost savings and flexibility that the cloud can offer.

This paper explores how CloudSwitch overcomes barriers to cloud security by enabling enterprises to run selected applications and data in the cloud with the same protection and control available internally. Using CloudSwitch, data in the cloud can now run under full enterprise control, making the cloud a much safer environment for a wide range of applications.
