Securing the Cloud for the Enterprise
A Joint White Paper from Symantec and VMware

The arrival of cloud computing is changing the landscape for information technology more completely than any trend or innovation since the advent of the Internet fifteen years ago. There are various approaches to cloud computing - public or private, platform or infrastructure - but all of them require new thinking about how the use of the cloud will impact an organization's compliance and security posture. How do IT strategists and decision-makers strike a balance between the tremendous potential of cloud computing and the security required to protect newly exposed information assets? How do they ensure compliance with regulations and audit requirements that were not designed with the cloud in mind?

In this whitepaper, VMWare and Symantec outline the "journey" approach to cloud computing, which is quickly gaining adherents among enterprises of all sizes. Beginning with virtualization, the journey strategy can transform IT, starting with private clouds to leverage and enhance existing technology assets. By starting with private clouds, organizations can make the right decisions about security controls that will scale to the next leg of their journey, even if it includes more disruptive hybrid or public cloud models.
