More and more Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers in 2014 could not make their networks as secure using AWS/S3, explained Vormetric’s VP of Cloud C.J. Radford. This trend will pick up in 2015, with more enterprises using cloud applications in order to defend themselves from the rising tide of cyberthreats.
In an email Q&A with TechRepublic, regarding 2015 cloud security trends Radford said he also expects that organizations will “open their coffers” to protect Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings, that more Information as a Service (IaaS) providers will offer encryption and access control services, and that hosted private clouds will exceed the number of in-house private clouds as the preferred environment.
Founded in 2001, Vormetric provides enterprise encryption and key management services to over 1,400 customers, including 17 on the Fortune 25 list. According to Radford, at present the main data security challenges for enterprises is “moving data to the cloud while keeping it safe, encrypted, and secure — while still managing to retain key ownership — across the entire cloud stack of infrastructure, platform, and software services.”
In our Q&A Radford also discussed how he would advise CISOs, protecting data at rest, the Vormetric data security solution, and compliance trends.
