Cloud Adoption In Asia Pacific: Overcoming Security Concerns With SSL
Cloud computing is a service delivery model that provides on-demand computing and storage services. Clouds may be public and open to all users, private and available only to users within an organization, or a hybrid. Although public clouds offer valuable services for businesses, this cloud model requires sound practices to maintain adequate security.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates are essential to implementing the encryption and authentication services used with cloud computing resources. When both cloud providers and their customers implement security best practices, they can comply with the demands of government and industry regulations as well as overcome security concerns. This white paper explores SSL technologies as an essential element of sound cloud security practices.
