We have an enviable track record in providing complex security solutions for cloud transformation projects across Azure, AWS, NSX and beyond. 

If you're considering cloud transformation at present, talk to us about ensuring that your requirements for security and user policy are adequately accommodated. 

Here's a few points to consider:

  • Careful planning and preparation is imperative. Many of the bear-traps can be avoided if the right preparations are made at the start.
  • Security must be considered an intrinsic part of any deployment - it's far harder to bolt on later. Include security at the inception of the project for best results.
  • In large data lake deployments, access by user group, policy and need should all be considered just as they would in a physical datacentre. The rudimentary security offered by cloud providers does not and cannot account for these requirements, but solutions are available which, in service, are as flexible as the environment itself. 
  • Where multiple applications are hosted in the cloud, security should exist between them. 
  • It's very likely that a complex enterprise will (over time if not initially) require flexibility between cloud providers - ensure that the security arrangements you choose are able to accommodate multiple providers, and that one single management console can be used to manage all, whether policies are similar or disparate. 
  • Consider the effect of cloud hosted applications for your network links, the physical changes in bandwidth usage can cause unforeseen issues if not modelled and addressed early on. 
  • Consider the effect on network visibility if all your traffic becomes encrypted. What will you be able to see? Will you be able to manage user behaviour as previously or will you be left in the dark.
  • In large enterprise, it's often necessary to map the current network before commencing cloud deployment - do you have a complete picture of your entire environment, its usage and pain points? Solutions exist which address these issues and enable better planning and deployments later.
