Mitigating the Top Security Risks Facing Organisations in the Cloud
The last few years have presented hackers with an even bigger opportunity. The cloud. The move from server-based to service-based thinking is changing the way traditional
IT departments design and deliver the technology that supports their businesses. Internet-accessed systems, software and applications have become massively popular
as organisations have raced to take advantage of the economies of scale, the cost effectiveness and the flexibility that the cloud offers.
But there are obstacles standing in the way of blanket take up of the cloud. The cloud is perceived as being riskier than an on-premise network. And that’s understandable,
right? Integrating cloud apps like Salesforce, MS Office 365, Dropbox and a whole raft of SaaS offerings with an on-premise network means the cloud blurs traditional
corporate IT boundaries.
