The primary concern for any organization exploring the opportunities of the cloud for the first time is security. The inclination of storing and directing resources externally beyond the borders of your network perimeter can certainly be unsettling, at first. In the end though, Cloud Computing is no different than managing the security within your internal network. It is about establishing and enforcing security protocols and procedures and only dealing with reputable partners and vendors. Selecting a proven quality cloud provider is where it all starts and with due diligence on the parts of both cloud provider and tenant, your network and data resources can be completely protected.
