Cloud Migration & Strategy Services Accelerate Your Digital Transformation With On-Premise, Hybrid or Native Cloud Overview Security-First Cloud Multidimensional Approach The Cloud Team Why Optiv Contact Us Cloud Deployments That Fuel Transformation Also Create Complexity and Risk. Cloud migrations and deployments have become critical to the success of digital transformation strategies. As companies deploy cloud apps and agile infrastructure, they must carefully consider the tools, processes and connections needed to secure their expanded ecosystem. Several factors are driving the adoption of different cloud structures. Vast volumes of data continue to expand and grow exponentially due to new retention policies and regulations across industries. Disruptive competitive entrants require that new products and services be introduced at a much faster pace. Evolving regulatory, data and technical requirements are creating operational hurdles. And support for mission-critical legacy applications is diminishing, meaning that infrastructure must be migrated or decommissioned. As cloud computing applications and workloads proliferate, though, many organizations struggle with rising levels of operational and security complexity. That complexity can easily limit system visibility leading to unexpected threats and security risks. Why Cloud Migration is Needed Successful cloud migration offers cost reductions for many organizations, as well as improved scalability and a significant decrease in the risk of a cyber incident. In addition, cloud adoption offers optimized scalability, faster and smarter integrations, and greater access to business-critical functionality. Cloud migration lets IT departments reshape overall infrastructure dramatically and leverage new technologies – since they are no longer restricted to on-premises hardware and software refresh cycles.
