Businesses of all sizes are beginning to recognize the benefits of public cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, etc. With the use of the public cloud, businesses no longer need to staff large IT groups, they can lower operational costs and increase profitability, and can also focus on growth and improve productivity.
Although there are several benefits to moving resources and data to the cloud, two of the leading cloud providers, AWS and Microsoft Azure, have made it clear that their responsibility for security and compliance goes only so far. Businesses are left having to close the data security loop. To ensure your business is not left exposed because of mis-configurations or lack of knowledge of how to use the public cloud, comprehensive analysis and assessments should be conducted of your environment.
