White Paper: Security and Compliance of Cloud

Did you know that Star Wars was one of the first movies about a data breach?

Today, security breaches in the cloud happen regularly. Christopher Porter, Fannie Mae’s Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer, discusses some lessons learned from his experiences in applying security to the cloud.

White Paper: Tagging Strategies

Tagging is critical. With the remote, virtualized and dynamic character- istics of cloud platforms, tagging is the only way to effectively manage cloud infrastructure at scale. Tags allow teams of all types (operations, IT, security and development) to know what’s what, and act appropriately on the right resources. Tags allow the organization to enable automation that maintains visibility, reduces cloud bills, and ensures security across your cloud deployments.

White Paper: Shadow IT

Cloud computing has proven revolutionary for organizations hoping to leverage technology, innovation and digital strategies to stay ahead of the competition. Business units can quickly provision up compute, storage and network resources as they need without IT bottlenecks. But easy access to cloud resources has a dark side—one that’s become a growing problem: Shadow IT. Engineers, developers and even business stakeholders are launching resources that IT is unaware of. And what IT doesn’t know can come back to haunt organizations, preventing the IT department from performing critical functions such as controlling security, compliance and costs.

The early promise of Software-as-a-Service—and all the other as-a-service offerings—has quickly given way to concern about security, fragmentation and vendor lock-in. If you’re like most, you’ve developed a healthy fear of black-box deployments, cloud sprawl and the gut feeling that things are more than a little out of control.
