If cloud architectures were human beings, their development stage would fall squarely in the middle of adolescence. Enterprises are at an inflection point with their cloud deployments as they migrate from ad hoc projects to full-fledged, mature, integrated cloud architectures. The discussion around cloud reflects the trepidation and uncertainty that come with adolescence: Cloud advocates express excitement, whereas others voice concern about these developments.
This white paper dispels cloud security myths and lays out a framework for assessing risk while comparing existing complex datacenter environments with new architectures in the cloud (including all the hybrid variations in between). It ultimately shows how enterprises can be, and likely will be, more secure in the cloud.
