Whether you are working with traditional data centers or moved your data to infrastructure and applications to the cloud, security is paramount. The challenge is to understand the differences in these two mediums and tailor your security practices to make this hybrid environment safe for your applications.

Let the Experts Help You

You can save yourself the hassle and let an industry expert do the thinking for you.

The primary differences between the cloud and traditional data center may work to your advantage as a security practitioner:

  1. Cloud Providers Design Simple To Use Interfaces

You don’t have to be a specialist to work your way through the simple GUI. The easy to use interfaces can be operated even by a non-IT layman.

  1. Local Workstations Are Less Vulnerable To Breaches

An attack on the cloud won’t necessarily affect your local workstations. Having the perimeter at the data center reduces the vulnerability locally.

  1. Saas, Paas We Don’t Care About The OS

The headache of configuration management, firmware, and patching is no longer your responsibility as the cloud service provider will handle the challenges of cross-platform portability of data.

As a security practitioner, you can easily optimize your applications for cloud computing with some expert advice.
