Today’s executives understand the need for information security but still struggle to manage the cost and complexity of a myriad of security technologies for everything from threat prevention to email security, vulnerability scanning and security event and log management. While important to a comprehensive security strategy, implementing and managing these solutions can divert IT resources from other critical initiatives. And organisations with smaller budgets may not even be able to consider sophisticated defence-in-depth security solutions. Cloud computing provides a delivery model for security that addresses many of these challenges for businesses large and small.
Cloud computing is a flexible, cost-effective and proven delivery platform for providing business or consumer IT services over the Internet. Cloud resources can be rapidly deployed and easily scaled, with all processes, applications and services provisioned “on demand,” regardless of user location or device. As a result, cloud computing helps organisations increase service delivery efficiency, streamline IT management and better align IT services with dynamic business requirements.
