(PRWEB) December 18, 2017
Cedrus Digital, a boutique consulting company that specializes in Enterprise Security for the Cloud, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.
As Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) continue to adopt best-of-breed products, each needing to meet niche requirements within the security domain, Information Security Risk Management teams are working to ensure that policies are followed, and regulatory compliance mandates are met. “Transitioning to the Cloud requires a significant set of new tools and a fresh look at policies, standards, and guidelines,” said Kyle Watson, Identity and Access Management (IAM) & Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Expert at Cedrus. “Organizations need to support the changing landscape of cloud including Amazon Web Services (AWS) Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) applications like Box and Office 365, and Platform as a Service (PaaS) environments like IBM Bluemix. Each of these cloud solutions present numerous security challenges that require new thinking and approach. Joining the CSA was a natural step in our evolution. The CSA membership reinforces our commitment to continuously develop and drive proven best practices and standards that empower enterprises to take full advantage of everything cloud computing has to offer.”
Serving many large enterprises in Financial Services and Healthcare, including Fortune 500 companies, Cedrus has created re-usable implementation patterns and use cases to solve security problems within the domains of Digital Identity Management Transformation and Digital Asset Protection in the Cloud through CASB.
“Being in the Cloud Computing space since the inception of cloud, and delivering value-driven information security solutions, gives Cedrus the experience and expertise to be a great strategic contributor to our cause,” said Jim Reavis, CEO of Cloud Security Alliance. “We look forward to them sharing insights with our member organizations to help advance and execute on Cloud Security best practices and standards.”
