Solutions for securing virtual desktop infrastructure, application servers and EBS data storage
Amazon Web Services™ is the fastest growing public cloud service available today with its user-friendly management and the ease with which applications may be on-boarded onto a scalable and reliable cloud infrastructure. While enterprises have leveraged the public cloud for development and test applications, these same enterprises are now looking to use AWS for hosting data storage as well as mission-critical server applications such as Microsoft SharePoint® and virtual desktops farms.
However, industry research confirms that data security concerns continue to be a top barrier in moving workloads to the cloud. While cloud data is subject to the same risks as that are resident in private datacenters like data breach or insider threats, the move to public cloud environments introduces additional risk. Regulatory compliance, cyber surveillance risks, loss of ownership over data, and data remanance concerns, all intensify the risks of moving workloads to the cloud.
