Article | April 9, 2020

When security teams find cloud vulnerabilities and misconfigurations at runtime, they are often blamed for introducing friction into the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline and stifling the enterprise’s ability to innovate as efficiently as possible. But it is not the fault of the security team; rather, it is the broader approach that limits the involvement of security until it’s too late. When put in this position, the security team must scramble to find the fault, determine the root cause, track down the right person and work to develop the remedy, and then ensure the fix is implemented correctly.

Article | February 11, 2020

Moving email and collaboration tools to the cloud was relatively simple for federal agencies, compared to the next project: moving data.As more agencies look to share data and collaborate more closely, solving the challenges of how to store data in a way that makes it accessible and usable to multiple agencies are becoming more urgent.In many cases, it’s not the technology that’s the difficult piece, it’s bringing the organization together on a different architecture. Cloud is not new at this point,” said Beth Halloran, deputy CIO at the General Services Administration, at Cloudera’s recent Data Cloud Summit.You can’t just say, ‘It’s going to save us money by going into the cloud,” she continued. “You have to understand what level of cloud is going to save you money, and infrastructure and services is not it.

Cloud Computing The disruptive shift to cloud for the long-term investor

Article | March 5, 2020

The public cloud services market is expected to total more than $214 billion when the figures for 2019 are finalised.The Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) segment of cloud is expected to have grown nearly 30% during 2019. If you haven’t heard of “IaaS”, that’s ok, just think of “Amazon Web Services” or “Microsoft Azure” as some of the biggest players in IaaS. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Defence even entered into a $10 billion contract with Microsoft Azure to move to the cloud, offering yet another proof point on the perceived convenience and security of using cloud-based infrastructure.
