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.
