|KuppingerCole offers advice on protecting your Cloud from industrial espionage with practical advice regarding managing technical risk within a Cloud environment.
The analyst group KuppingerCole has published the advisory note “Secure your Cloud against Industrial Espionage”.
As Cloud environments become demonstrably more secure and on premise solutions become expensive to protect, there will be a tipping point where it makes sense to keep IP encrypted and protected by strict physical, technical and procedural controls under a third party’s control.
