There are three important things you need to know about cloud security. First, cloud security is almost exactly like your internal security. The security tools you use every day are the same tools that will be used to protect your data in the cloud. The one difference is that the cloud is a multi-tenant environment with more than one company (multiple tenants) sharing the same cloud service provider. Second, security issues involving the cloud can all be addressed using your current security tools. Security needs should be carefully considered. But they shouldn’t be viewed as a hindrance if you are considering a move to the cloud. The commodity nature of IT will, over time, require that you move some of your technologies to the cloud to remain financially competitive. So you should begin addressing your security issues and get ready for the move.
