Maharashtra, India (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
With a current rush to shift nearly everything possible under IT infrastructure to cloud, enterprises are being presented with a very big challenge as to whether their cloud implementations are meeting the required security policies similar to those enforced within their corporate intranet.
Checking just the datacenter certifications and SLA guarantees would not solve the actual problem of managing cloud security. Having a cloud deployment which meets internal compliance requirements is a challenge which CIOs are facing with current cloud roadmaps. What information should be part of public cloud deployment and which data is supposed to be kept on premise or on private cloud is a question every organization is confronted with.
Cloud Compliance and Cloud Security is a shared responsibility between the cloud vendor and cloud customers. To achieve compliance on Cloud, the application or services which the customers host on Cloud must also comply with security guidelines which have been decided for the internal infrastructure with special regards to national laws and industry best practices.
In public cloud, regulatory content must go hand in hand with trusted cloud provider. Cloud security is not just about complying with PCI, HIPAA, SSAE 16. Cloud security compliance certificates are provided by nearly all cloud vendors like Azure and Amazon, but security is as good as the least knowledgeable developer who has contributed to a small part of the cloud application development process.
Security is not just about collection of right certifications but understanding the implications of our everyday actions.
