How to keep your data secure in the cloud

How does your SaaS provider allow access, authenticate and log your user activity? Use our infographic to develop your own framework to keep your data secure.

When cloud services first gained momentum, there was a lot of debate around managing the risks of entrusting data to external systems. However, the overriding business benefits and simplicity of pay-as-you-go services have led to huge growth in usage across most enterprise organizations, predicted to rise even further.

With a lack of clear frameworks for evaluating SaaS and Cloud providers, how can you choose the right partner and ensure security on an ongoing basis?

To help you make the decision between solution providers and get a solid understanding of their security status, we’ve developed a set of recommendations using our own experience of working with SaaS providers and listening to our clients for their insight into what matters to them.

If you’re tired of getting multiple SaaS providers to submit security questionnaires, or trying to get access to a provider’s recent penetration test results, only to discover your data won’t be stored securely – this will save you time and paperwork.
