A cloud migration is a big decision, and the path to a successful, secure migration is not always a simple one.
But a cloud migration is a clean slate: It’s a chance to re-evaluate the way your organization shares, stores, manages, and protects vital information that flows in and out, day after day.
Evaluating your future cloud provider gives you a chance to get back to basics, to evaluate your priorities, and to choose the tools and vendors that are going to best support your organization’s productivity — both today and 5 years from now.
It also presents an opportunity to build security into your data management strategy, from the ground up — if you’re moving a wealth of corporate data to the cloud, this is a chance to ensure your most sensitive data is protected from the beginning.
The great news is that Google and Microsoft both have robust suites of cloud-based tools for enterprises of all sizes, so organizations have a wealth of strong options to choose from.
When you’re evaluating your cloud migration strategy, make sure you include security in the conversation early — especially if you manage regulated or sensitive information like ITAR, HIPAA, or other data related to compliance. To learn how you can effectively incorporate encryption and Zero Trust data protection into your cloud migration strategy, contact Virtru to start the conversation.
