If you are looking for a cloud solution, there are three things you need to be absolutely sure of:

  • Availability

    availability

How do you do this?

You need to ask the right questions. Find out where data centres are located, and what hosting, systems and storage capabilities you can access. Ask about security measures. Learn about the network that will deliver your applications and information. And make sure you do a comprehensive examination of a provider's service level agreements (SLAs) from end to end.

At iQ, we are in a position to answer any questions you have about supporting your cloud.

Secure my new technologies and infrastructures

With all the benefits of a standardized, shared infrastructure and application deployment, migrating to the cloud can substantially reduce your costs and increase efficiencies. But many organizations are hesitant to make the move because of security concerns. They worry about the privacy of corporate data, the ability to customize security policies and the need to stay compliant.

That is why leading cloud service providers have built infrastructures that incorporate the latest security technologies and exceptional redundancy levels. Delivering high reliability, they often offer greater availability and security than traditional deployments.

Moving to a secure cloud can help you...

Access the latest anti-malware as soon as it becomes available

Leading security vendors track Internet traffic for suspicious activity, 24/7. By harnessing the power of the cloud, you will have access to the latest security updates as soon as they are released.

Improve security management and policy administration

The cloud is a new way to deliver IT. Solutions such as Security as a Service provide centralized, easy-to-use interfaces to manage security - even in complex environments. With near real-time updates and patches, as well as the potential for automatic security policy updates, you can bring added protection to your corporate network.

Respond to increasingly complex regulatory requirements

The cloud will give you the flexibility to create an IT environment that responds to changing regulatory requirements. Here's how:

  • A highly available, scalable cloud infrastructure, combined with strong encryption capabilities

  • Advanced data search capabilities mean easy data discovery for legal purposes

  • Some cloud applications offer vulnerability assessment

  • Predefined security policies and detailed audit reporting capabilities, significantly simplifying compliance efforts

  • Leading cloud service providers offer guarantees on geographic data location, application availability, data integrity and third-party auditability

  • Take the pressure off your regulatory compliance processes and investments

Leverage security skills and knowledge

continual security and regulatory updates require significant investment in technology, training and maintenance. The growing shortage of skilled IT specialists makes it increasingly difficult to keep these security resources in house. By harnessing the power of the cloud, you can leverage the knowledge of leading security vendors and access a highly secure, available and scalable infrastructure.
