The McAfee Cloud Security Platform can help customers understand where data resides in their organization, and its level of importance or sensitivity. That is the first step in ensuring that the right data moves to the cloud, and it helps to minimize the anxiety of losing key data to traffic through various channels. Also, McAfee’s Cloud Identity Manager enables customers to control access to cloud applications, which is integral to reducing the anxiety around potential data loss.
OpSource believes that giving IT professionals more granular control over their cloud environment takes a lot of the anxiety out of moving to the cloud. The OpSource Cloud allows IT professionals more control than many public clouds and enables them to: • Expose only those private IP addresses they want exposed to the public Internet • Customize ACL firewall rules • Grant access to certain areas of the cloud only to certain people • Monitor usage with detailed reporting • Add or remove CPU, RAM, and storage from servers, on the fly • Gain access through easy-to-use user interfaces (UIs) or RESTful APIs In addition, security is a key component of our offering. OpSource is built on enterprise-grade infrastructure, and we have taken a layered or “defense-in-depth” approach to security to build an enterprise-class secure public cloud. Where typical public cloud offerings have a perimeter-based security solution, OpSource bakes security into the OpSource Cloud platform at every step.
There can be anxiety moving to any new platform, especially when on-ramping into a new platform that is not completely owned or managed by the customer. Education and planning can significantly reduce anxiety and should include due diligence in all aspects of the migration. SecRAMP helps customers identify key security strategies and creates detailed project plans to help implement all possible security measures required for a successful and secure cloud on-ramping experience. After the ramp-up, SecRAMP provides monitoring and tuning to protect the customer’s data moving forward while it resides on a service provider platform.
