Big transitions such as the one the IT landscape is undergoing, can present an opportunity to enact security improvements, but they can also make a complicated process even more complex. The fundamental question being “With sensitive data being stored online rather than on premise, is the cloud inherently less safe?”
With massive benefits such as lower fixed costs, higher flexibility, automatic software updates, increased collaboration, and the freedom to work from anywhere, the advantages associated with cloud are pretty incredible. No mystery as to why so many companies are making the switch. Still, although cloud services have ushered in a new age of transmitting and storing data, many companies are hesitant or make the move without a clear plan for security in place.
Yes, cloud computing makes the documents available everywhere because the data actually lives on a network of hosted servers that transmit data over the internet. But, as the technology and the use cases evolve, so do the considerations for securing networks and data.
The very tactics that contribute to both agility and security within the cloud – hybrid and multi-cloud models – can introduce vulnerabilities if not properly locked down. That’s what our lengthy roster of experts will talk about during our virtual summit.
VMware is one company that understands the impact of cloud is undeniable: from instant access to infinite IT resources and new application architectures, to redefined IT operations and the acceleration of digital transformation.
Leveraging their hybrid cloud solution, with a single operating model across similar environments, including multiple public clouds, you can increase business agility, reduce costs and create a native developer experience for all app types. This exemplifies the attributes necessary to create dynamism that allows migration with adaptable security infrastructure.
Dimension Data comes in on the aspect of helping accelerating the digital transformation journey. Unlocking potential using a comprehensive portfolio of intelligent technology and services, they are adept at singling out hitches within the digital realm and plugging them in with intelligence solutions.
Join the information security industry experts as they discuss strategies, tools and solutions to ensure your organisation is secure at the virtual Cloud and Security Summit.
