More and more companies are moving their enterprise systems to the cloud to reap the benefits of client agility, improved collaboration, and simplified processes for software updates. However, the trend towards cloud has happened alongside increasing security threats. Organizations that are considering whether cloud is right for them are left to wonder: 

  • How do cloud vendors develop a strong and robust security program in an ever-changing threat landscape?
  • How do they stay on top of internal and external threats, product and application risks, business risks, and regulatory and industry compliance requirements?
  • How can they find a cloud vendor that compliant to assessment and authorization processes (such as FedRAMP and DISA) that ensure proper security is in place?
