CLOUD ENCRYPTION
While 83% of enterprises report that they are using the cloud for critical workloads, data security for cloud remains an uncertainty. With so many options and technologies available, what’s the answer?

THE PROBLEM

Whether your organization is leveraging IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, hybrid applications, or multi-cloud strategies, the questions are the same: How can I fulfill compliance requirements for security cloud data? Is there a standard way or do I need multiple methods? Do I use native controls or third-party? What kind of reporting can I get to fulfill audit requirements? And many others.

Business drivers, requirements, use cases, technology stack, operational resources, staff and skill sets all factor into determining the right cloud data security strategy.

It is this process that we help customers with when evaluating cloud data security options.

ENGAGEMENT

CHALLENGE

What are the recommended  data security options I should consider when deploying applications to the cloud?

OUR PROCESS

  • Understand target cloud use cases, evaluate the security requirements for those use cases, and work with your team to develop an assessment of necessary security controls.

  • Map those requirements to existing solutions – both native cloud, third-party commercial, and open source – to help select the right solutions to evaluate.

LEVEL OF EFFORT

  • Medium

  • A cloud encryption assessment is typically not a long engagement, but gives you highly actionable information upon which you can build effective cloud security strategy.

  • Do you have the resources to perform an assessment of the cloud data security market to understand what tools are available to you, how effective they are at various security controls, and how they map to your security requirements? All before even starting a technical evaluation? We are your jumpstart. We understand the landscape of solutions and can quickly map your needs to what’s appropriate.

OUTCOMES

  • A defined, concrete matrix of required security controls for target cloud use cases produced by Sidechain

  • Mapping of high-value security solutions that can lead you directly into an evaluation phase.
