Protecting Sensitive Data in Modern Day Cloud Architectures
The cloud and the benefits of using cloud IaaS and SaaS services are a given today as enterprises continue to seek more automation, productivity and cost savings from its IT Systems. The benefits of collaboration, dashboards and access to critical data to enable instant and correct business decisions is also a given, as are global reach and distributed workforces leveraging mobile and smartphone technology in today’s modern day cloud based architectures.
However, a modern day distributed cloud based applications, infrastructure and architecture is very different to the parametrised IT security approaches of yesterday. A modern day cloud based architecture means your data and specifically sensitive data is in many places beyond the safety of your security parameter of yesterday.
The eperi Gateway is the answer to this modern day cloud based IT architecture. It acts as a point of control, so that internal users accessing external cloud based IaaS and SaaS are routed through the eperi Gateway acting as a Proxy. Data Protection policies are set so that sensitive data can be encrypted before it leaves the safety of the enterprise. The sensitive, now protected data remains protected at all times ‘in Transit’, ‘at Rest’ and ‘in Use’ in distributed IaaS and SaaS services.
