As a business scales, one of the decisions you need to make is where you should store their data – on-prem, in the cloud, or a mix of both.
For many CIOs, moving company data to the cloud becomes inevitable when the status quo is no longer sustainable.
Legacy infrastructure mires the enterprise in spiralling costs, security vulnerabilities, and archaic IT processes.
Having a mix of both on-prem and cloud infrastructure provides more options for backup, but it introduces complexity in data storage and can be difficult to secure.
It’s important when designing your ideal cloud architecture to put a security operations centre in place.
Rackspace managed security vice president Brannon Lacey says that depending on a company’s maturity and business goals, a managed service or hosted toolset may be the right fit.
However, at the top of the best practices spectrum is having a managed security service provider (MSSP).
This approach gives your organisation a network of people, process and technology that works together to protect your data.
