Cloud Security Audit

Optimize Security with a Cloud Security Audit

As organizations move to the cloud with ever greater speed, a cloud security audit can help guide efforts to secure data, applications, infrastructure and other elements of cloud computing.

Enterprises and users are adopting cloud technologies more quickly than security organizations can sanction and secure them, creating significant risks to cloud security. Many organizations have hundreds or thousands of cloud applications in use, with the vast majority not considered enterprise-ready. To defend against a myriad of threats, organizations must build an effective cloud strategy and design cloud architecture with security in mind from the start.

A cloud security audit can help by assessing and prioritizing risks, evaluating current controls, identifying the gaps in existing cloud security strategy and programs, and making recommendations tied to business priorities.

Optiv can help. With a bench of security experts that have deep experience in designing, planning and implementing cloud initiatives, we can partner with organizations to define strategy, perform a cloud security assessment and build and run security initiatives.
