Cloud Security Risks

Optiv security experts assist IT teams in designing an approach to cloud security to successfully mitigate cloud security risks and related threats.

Mitigate Cloud Security Risks with the Right Cloud Services Provider

There was a time when cloud security risks outweighed cloud benefits for many organizations. Though that time has passed, and many organizations are adopting a cloud-first approach to technology, significant cloud security threats still remain. From malware and viruses to theft and loss of data, cloud security risks continue to hinder enterprise productivity, profitability and reputation.


The problem is that enterprises, business units and individuals are adopting cloud technologies at such a rapid pace that IT teams can't adequately sanction or secure every application. And with the high cost of a security breach in both dollars and loss of reputation, cloud security risks are a significant threat to enterprise competitiveness.


A mature cloud security strategy can help to mitigate known cloud security risks and protect the organization from the new threats that seem to emerge almost daily. Developing an effective strategy requires clear insight and extensive experience in managing cloud security architecture, as well as expertise in the latest technologies and most responsive vendors. That's where Optiv can help.
