Cloud computing Security

Cloud computing represents a huge change in the way a business functions, and that’s especially true for an organization’s IT infrastructure. Nobody is affected more by this transition than the network administrators tasked with keeping an organization’s data and network users safe.

Sharing data, applications and IT infrastructures can present significant cost and productivity benefits, but it all takes place outside of the comfort zone of the corporate firewall and physical environment. As a network administrator, your task during a cloud computing implementation is to ensure users and data remain secure after transitioning data, applications, an infrastructure, or all of the above to the cloud. Although there is a shared responsibility with the cloud provider for the security of enterprise data, ultimately enterprise security pros are responsible.
