to the Public Cloud
Many enterprises have migrated to the cloud to obtain high-speed performance, flexibility and scalability, while lowering expenses. Many choose to migrate all their resources to one cloud, while others choose a multi-provider deployment, diversifying their resources among a few cloud providers.
Some organizations have chosen to maintain a hybrid environment, with certain resources remaining on premise, and other resources residing in the cloud. However, no matter which deployment is selected when migrating resources offsite to the public cloud, security and protecting data are a primary concern.
For CIOs managing the transition, conducting the move in a secure fashion requires careful planning and operation. The dynamic nature of the cloud environment entails specific security challenges during migration that include securing the data, obtaining network visibility and control and automating specific tasks.
Technical requirements for enterprise migration to the cloud include:
Ability to isolate the cloud servers from the rest of the world using private IP addressing and firewall rules
Add encryption capabilities identity access management policies and access logs
Real-time view of the cloud network, VPN users, virtual servers, connectivity statuses, alerts and notifications
of firewall and IAM polices,
add firewall rules, strong authentication and automation

40Cloud simplifies preparation and
implementation of enterprise migration to
the cloud by providing:
Encrypted connectivity to implement secure communication across multiple sites, including all major cloud providers and hybrid environments
Flexibility to connect all devices in all environments, including on-premise, remote users and mobile devices
A dynamic virtual private network that overlays the cloud provider’s network and is isolated from the rest of the world; IT administrators can fully enforce routing and firewall policies on this overlay network
Integration and automation of network-wide security policies, encompassing firewall rules (includes AWS security groups) and enforcing access rights for VPN users
Authorization is enforced on all users by Access Rights policies that are dynamically enforced, significantly decreasing the risk of internal and external hacks
