Whether critical applications are deployed in the public cloud, in the data center, or in both, organizations need a strategic point of control for application security.
Application threats are constantly evolving. Anyone could be a target, and perpetrators are extremely skilled, organized, and well-funded. Culprits are often trained than the IT staff deployed to thwart the attacks, which are creative, elaborate, targeted, and aggressive.

Customer data, state secrets, intellectual property, SSL certificates, and other proprietary, highly sensitive information are the top targets. The infrastructure needs a layered barrier that protects against attacks, and users need protection against potential infection from the application, if it were to be compromised.

Performance, scalability, and shared resources were the primary focus of initial cloud offerings. Cloud computing has matured and established itself as yet another option for IT including sensitive data is making its way to the cloud.
Organizations are beginning to realize that the cloud does not lend itself to static security controls. In the cloud, security solutions must have the capability to interpret its context, intercept all data traffic, and then make appropriate decisions about that traffic. The cloud requires the ability to apply policies and tools that can control access to, and migrate with, the applications and data as they move from traditional data center to cloud—and as they travel to other models in the cloud.

Cloud computing is a transformational new way of delivering and paying for IT
services. It is revolutionizing delivery models, enabling companies to make step
changes in IT agility, to re-engineer their business processes, and revolutionize forever
the way that they use applications and interact with consumers and other companies.
A high-level roadmap to implement security best practice consists of the
• Conduct a full risk assessment
• Secure your own information and identities
• Implement a secure and strong governance framework
With a robust risk-assessment process, set of security controls, and governance
framework in place, you’ll be both reducing risk as you take your fi rst step
into cloud, and at the forefront of capitalizing on emerging technologies and
upcoming standards in cloud computing. This three-part approach to security is
also forward compatible: It lets you evolve over time to maintain your protection
without disruption, whatever the future holds.
