Data is at the center of everything -- allowing for businesses to run and enabling the products and services that will drive competitive advantage for them in the future. And protecting that data is paramount. Today, issues of risk, data privacy, and compliance are the chief inhibitors to most organizations’ adoption of cloud services. While security can be seen as an obstacle to the broad adoption of cloud computing, it can also be an enabler. By finding a way to effectively safeguard data in the cloud, enterprises can begin to fully maximize the business potential of cloud offerings, allowing for continued innovation and growth in the industry.
