Join HP security expert Tari Schreider for a deep-dive live chat on cloud protection

Business leaders want to exploit cloud computing values fast, but they also fear the security risks in moving to cloud models too quickly.

Just at the time that companies want to leverage cloud, they know that security threats are growing. Indeed, according to recent HP-sponsored research, the volume and complexity of security threats has continued to escalate. Analyst firms such as Forrester place security and privacy as the top reasons for not adopting cloud.

Yet by better understanding cloud security risks, gaining detailed understanding of your own infrastructure and following proven reference architectures and methods, security can move from an inhibitor of cloud adoption to an enabler.

Indeed, CIOs must find the ways to make extended services use secure for their operations, data, processes, intellectual property, employees and customers – even as security threats ramp up.

And so these cloud services from both inside and outside the enterprise are rapidly compelling companies to rethink how they use and exploit technology securely. Cloud computing trends are now driving the need for a better approach to security.
