Cloud Security Architecture

Building a Mature Cloud Security Architecture

For companies that want to reap the many benefits of cloud computing, a mature cloud security architecture can help to eliminate the strain on the security organization and improve overall security effectiveness.

Designing a cloud security architecture that accounts for security across the supply chain enables companies to proactively secure and operationalize the business. But for already overburdened IT organizations, adding cloud security to the task list can introduce a significant risk. The volume and sophistication of cloud security threats is constantly increasing, and deep expertise is required to design, plan and implement a mature cloud security architecture.

Optiv can help. Leveraging expert minds, leading best practices and proven methodologies, we engage stakeholders to produce a strategic and tactical roadmap aligned to business objectives that helps to successfully guide organizations to a mature cloud security architecture.

The result of these meetings is a cloud security strategy and cloud security architecture roadmap that includes:

  • Cloud objectives and business drivers.
