The COVID-19 pandemic brought hard lessons for many businesses trying to empower their employees to continue working safely and productively under new conditions. One key initiative has been migrating their business-critical data and applications from on-premises servers to the cloud. The cloud’s ability to instantly scale and be accessible everywhere has helped drive new productivity in uncertain times. However, these changes have also accelerated the need for cloud-based innovations in how we do business and secure critical data.
All innovation comes with risks, and migrating to the cloud is no different. No matter the cloud service provider (CSP), securing data during migration to the cloud is important, especially in today’s world where cyber threats grow exponentially and data ecosystems are gaining more complexity. The need to ensure and maintain regulatory compliance and audited records for sensitive data creates even more risk of potential exposure.
