Cloud Security Assessment

Protecting the Enterprise with a Cloud Security Assessment

As organizations adopt cloud technology to improve speed, agility, scale and cost-savings, a cloud security assessment can support and guide IT organizations tasked with protecting business-critical assets in the cloud.

Enterprises are adopting staggering numbers of cloud applications and cloud technologies. From cloud storage, collaboration tools, office suites and enterprise applications, cloud services are adding remarkable computing power to day-to-day operations – as well as significant cloud security risks. The vast majority of cloud applications are not enterprise ready, and IT teams are unable to secure cloud technology at the same rate it is being adopted by enterprise users.

A cloud security assessment can help by identifying risks, evaluating current controls, identifying gaps or weaknesses and providing recommendations tailored to business priorities. With a superior cloud security assessment, enterprises can successfully navigate the shifting landscape of cloud computing security while developing a mature cloud security architecture to protect data, users and the organization.

That's where Optiv can help. With a bench of security experts well-versed in all aspects of cloud security, we can help to design, plan and implement a cloud security assessment to help organizations achieve cloud strategy goals, improve cloud security and enable new business models.
