Jumping on the Cloud? Consider these Network Security Issues
Abandoning an existing on-site IT infrastructure for a cloud provider cant offer the same level of security, control or performance.
Cloud marketing is more "repackaging" of solutions that have existed for years, yet this article on Cloud Computing Journal suggests that CIOs and IT executives are seriously considering cloud services when weighing up the economic benefits.
"While network latency, data availability, security and application support are all valid concerns for customers thinking of utilizing the cloud, a sound approach and pre-analysis could easily alleviate them, bringing in major cost savings to your business. In other words jumping on the cloud bandwagon without the right assessment might see you falling straight through from the sky; but making sure the cloud you do jump on is substantial enough to support and sustain your company could also be the soundest business investment youll ever make."
