1 Business Brief TITUS Data Security for Cloud Identify and Control Sensitive Data Sent to the Cloud Nine out of 10 businesses cite security as the top obstacle for cloud adoption. - IDC Control Data in the Cloud Security remains the single biggest source of data leakage. Protect your sensitive data by controlling what can be sent to the Cloud. TITUS Cloud Data Security solutions allow organizations to control what data can move between the enterprise and the cloud. Content analysis and classification of and documents allow organizations to decide what data can be sent to the cloud. Enterprises have been rapidly shifting their IT infrastructures to a cloud computing model. Gartner states that nearly every vendor who briefs them has a cloud computing strategy. The cloud allows organizations to receive their software, data access and storage needs as a service, instead of deploying and operating these systems themselves. The cloud affords many benefits to today s organizations from agility and scalability, to cost savings and increased efficiency. A key area of interest for organizations with respect to the cloud is . is a critical component of almost every business, but managing infrastructure can be both time consuming and expensive. An ideal technology to move to a cloud services model! And many organizations are doing just that. Gartner states that while cloud is in its infancy, it is growing extremely quickly with roughly 2% of the market today, growing to 10% by the end of 2012 and 30% by the end of In recent years, many organizations have started to shift their infrastructures to a cloud computing model in order to reap the benefits. Every organization has a different strategy when it comes to adopting cloud services. Some organizations are looking to realize the benefits of cloud based by moving every user to the cloud. Others decide to adopt a hybrid strategy where some users infrastructure would be cloud-based and others remain in-house. Some large organizations find it easier to achieve a seamless transition to cloud by moving users in a staged fashion migrating users to the cloud in phases, keeping others in-house during the process. These organizations continue to use the Microsoft Outlook front-end, while migrating to a cloud backend. In addition to the migration benefits of continuing to use the Outlook front-end with a cloud solution, organizations can enjoy uninterrupted service for their users while continuing to use the familiar Outlook environment they are most comfortable with. User environments are not impacted by the new cloud services, no user training is needed, and no new client-side security issues arise.
2 Security Concerns in the Cloud As organizations begin to introduce cloud , whatever their strategy, they are also introducing a new set of concerns when it comes to the security and privacy of data. A recent Aberdeen Group benchmark study on Security and Cloud Best Practices shows that nearly half (49%) of organizations indicate that they are taking proactive steps to address concerns about security and cloud by selecting and implementing security solutions that augment the current capabilities of the solution providers, but remain under enterprise control. Leading analyst firms such as Forrester and Gartner have also identified cloud data security as a major area of concern as organizations move toward increasing the amount of data in the cloud. Primary concerns for cloud data security include: The viability of cloud vendors: Nothing is forever. Cloud vendors, just like any other organization, may discontinue their services, could be acquired, or could go out of business completely. User access: Sensitive data is being housed outside the organization, and cloud vendors do not have the personnel controls that in-house would. Data privacy: Cloud vendors must ensure that all critical data is hidden or masked. Regulatory compliance: The organization, not the cloud vendor, is ultimately responsible for their own information, and the security thereof. Data location: There is no way of knowing exactly where information will be hosted in the cloud. Data is typically also replicated over several locations. By moving to a cloud solution, organizations are relinquishing control of their important information, which can be a risky endeavor from a security perspective. With all of these security concerns in mind, how can organizations ensure their information is truly secure when embracing cloud ? Securing in the Cloud Starts with Data Identification When an organizations is hosted in the cloud, organizations must ensure that they protect that information as it flows through their organization and the cloud. By focusing security measures at the data level, companies will find themselves in a better position to control data, spot attacks quickly, better oversee the threat lifecycle and plug security vulnerabilities. That s accomplished by following data as it moves through the system, including back and forth between on-premise and hosted environments.
3 TITUS Cloud Data Security solutions allow organizations to identify information in order to control how it moves through the enterprise and the cloud. With TITUS Cloud Data Security solutions, organizations can protect data before it is sent to the cloud, so they can retain control of their most valuable asset: their information. For example, in a hybrid cloud environment, where some infrastructure is cloud-based and some is in-house, TITUS Message Classification can prevent s from being sent outside of the organization and into the cloud based on the sensitivity of the content. By allowing users to identify the sensitivity of their information by classifying every before it is sent to the cloud, TITUS can help protect an organization s sensitive information. Identify and Control Sensitive Information in the Cloud TITUS Cloud Data Security solutions are the foundation for maintaining control of an organization s important information. Whether or not your organization decides to move to the cloud, other organizations do. It is important to consider the risk of an organization sending valuable information to another organization s cloud. Utilizing TITUS Message Classification to classify every before being sent out into a cloud environment allows organizations to maintain control and protection of their important information, regardless of who owns the cloud. Based on the classification, TITUS can prevent s from being sent to untrusted cloud addresses. Regardless of an organization s cloud strategy, TITUS Cloud Data Security solutions also embed metadata into every . With users classifying the sensitivity of their information, this metadata can trigger other security solutions to ensure the proper protection of information as it flows through the organization, the cloud, or both. Some examples of TITUS Classification metadata enhancing other solutions include: Encryption solutions: Desired classification selections can be configured to automatically trigger encryption or rights management protection. This ensures protection of an organization s valuable information being sent and residing in the cloud. DLP and gateway solutions: TITUS Classification metadata enhances both cloud and on-premise DLP and gateway solutions by enabling these solutions to make more effective, deliberate policy decisions to protect information. These solutions can read TITUS Classification metadata, and immediately understand the level of sensitivity given to every piece of information by its creators.
